After winning awards in advertising for a Superbowl commercial and a Ted Talks 10 Global Ads worth sharing, Joe Vu abandoned his lucrative career in advertising to be totally disowned by his Asian parents. Since then he's been on The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and the prestigious Just For Laughs festival and can also be heard on CBC The Debaters. His comedy comes from the perspective of the under represented south east Asian voice. Absurd, intelligent, and insightful, his routine is at once both entertaining and educational.

THE COINCIDENCE MEN
"The Coincidence Men" make things up for comedy improv audiences. TCM are Kerry Griffin, Rob Hawke, Ralph MacLeod, Gord Oxley and Marcel St. Pierre, all respected vets of Toronto's improv, sketch and comedy "scene". 2 of them are sometimes known as the sketch-comedy-Gemini-Award winning comedy duo "Fast n Dirty". 3 of them have been observed as shortform improv juggernaut "The Gee Spots". 3 of them were the founding alumni and creative force behind "The Bad Dog Theatre Company". 3 of them are Second City alum while the other 2 are known to run "The Social Capital Theatre". 100 years of collective improv experience between them, and a bunch of comedy awards and nominations. They do long form. They do shortform. They do shlongform. But all of that is really just a coincidence.
As always, hosted by the comedy couple that is not actually a couple ANNE MCMASTER (Not Oasis, Clue Live!, The LCBO) and SCOTT FAULCONBRIDGE (Just For Laughs, The Debaters, NBC's "Last Comic Standing").
