ABOUT DAVID & KEN

Award-winning comedians, musicians and actors!

Improv and music changed their lives!  They’ve been performing and touring with various acts for over 20 years, and they’re not stopping!

David and Ken have a variety of show offerings, from solo acts to ensemble acts, and they can all be customized to suit your needs!  They love comedy, improv and music, but love performing live most of all!

Perhaps you’d like to see Citizen Hurricane: the world’s greatest improvised comedy act…in the world! A one of a kind improvised comedy show and rock concert with real stories, ridiculous characters and hilarious, spontaneous songs!

It’s Whose Line is it Anyway meets Tenacious D, Bo Burnam, and Flight of the Conchords!  Yes, it’s all that!

Citizen Hurricane has great music inspired by all of your favourites including Oasis, Radiohead, Jack White and Pink Floyd with musical styles from Jazz to Reggae to Metal…and yes, even Country. Get ready to sing along and rock out to your new favourite songs created that very night! This playful, comedy-adventure is inspired by audience suggestions and will leave you feeling joyful and connected!

Maybe Viva Las Improv, a Vegas style improv show, is more to your liking. A deliciously sinful blend of comedic serenades infused with playful charm, dance numbers, crowd work and storytelling. All based off audience suggestions, of course.

Or perhaps you prefer a traditional improv show, similar to Whose Line is it Anyway.  Whatever you need, be sure to reach out!  They can design comedy shows for you, whether it’s a show for your theatre, a corporate event celebrating your company or a solo act.  Please check the show format page for other show offerings.

Fans of and inspired by Reggie Watts, Flight of the Conchords, Marc Rebillet, Bo Burnham, Tenacious D & the Smothers Brothers they have been fortunate enough to also perform many times with their improv heroes Colin Mochrie and Ryan Styles.
