"It's pure joy, bro".
That could have been the entire interview with these two. If you watch their act, 2-MAN NO-SHOW, you'll know what I mean. Joy becomes them as they play for the audience in complete vulnerability and trust, taking us on an improvised journey to an unknown destination. Unsurprisingy, joy also becomes the audience as we unite with Kessler and Hall in exhiliration. It is one of those shows where time stands still and you're just so happy to be part of it the "how-did-we-get-here" ending is satisfying and personal.
I was first exposed to their manic delivery of endearing lunacy at last year's Toronto Fringe Festival but Kessler and Hall perform together at venues all over the city throughout the year including Comedy Bar, Second City and Social Capital Theatre. They have won critical acclaim across the continent including Toronto's best improv troupe by Now Magazine and a nomination for the 2012 Canadian Comedy Award.
Currently, 2-Man No-Show-3D is currently running at The Toronto Festival of Clowns. Ticket information here.
Additionally, the comedy duo is happy to announce that they will be performing together in this year's Toronto Fringe Festival in the Theatre Passe Murraille backspace. Don't miss them in and around Toronto all year!
