GRIMprov is a Five member improvisational comedic troupe that have performed shows across Ottawa at a variety of venues (theatres, bars, galleries, Comic-con!). Drew McFadyen, Joel Garrow, Mike Kosowan, Jordan Moffatt and DJ Helicase (Austin Vair) have been performing improv under different troupes for countless years (Mission-improvable, Summer Crush, Insensitivity Training, and more). These four amigos make up the dark and humorous mantel of GRIMprov. We delight and entertain audiences at charity events, corporate parties, or where ever an audience can be found. You can see them all on the first and last Wednesday of the month at the Cock and Lion Pub, 202 Sparks St. 8pm.
