Monkey Toast is a six-time Canadian Comedy Award winning talk/improv show. Each show our host interviews two different celebrity guests. After an interview segment the focus shifts to the Monkey Toast Players, six of the best improvisers in the world, who use the interview as springboard for their improvised scenes. The show then goes back and forth between interview and improv.

Starring The Monkey Toast Players: Lisa Merchant, Marty Adams, Christy Bruce, Albert Howell, Jack Mosshammer and Jim Annan. Music by Ayaka Kinugawa. Hosted by David Shore.
