Dan Duvall is a Victoria/Vancouver based comedian who has performed across Canada and the US including JFL Northwest. He has opened for Shawn Majumder, Brent Butt, Bruce McCulloch and more. He is also the subject of the CraveTV documentary Funny Tweets! Dan has been a professonal comedy writer for the better part of a decade with his work appearing on Cartoon Network Canada and Adult Swim. Alistair Ogden Alistair Ogden one of Canada's rising young comedic talents, Alistair's blend of clever wit and self-deprecating silliness first brought him to prominence when he won CBC's Next Up Competition in 2019. He's since taped a televised set at the Halifax Comedy Festival, appeared at Toronto SketchFest, had his show Comedy Pants featured as part of the Just For Laughs Vancouver festival, and regularly performs at comedy clubs across Canada.
A computer wiz since the age of seven, Andrew, has yet to meet a firewall he can’t crack. For him, bypassing a login screen and finding a backdoor into a network is where he feels most at home. By age 13 Andrew had created his first program - a decryption software that analyzed the metadata inherent in a file, scanned for vulnerabilities, and provided an output equal to or less than half the original file size. He called it Project Benjamin and it was purchased by a local computer store for $100 and a 15 inch monitor.
Hired by Entertainment Village in 2022 to revamp their website, Andrew wasn’t interested in money or a free Dell monitor - he wished only to be able to improvise with his heroes. After some deliberation they agreed, and Andrew has been an invaluable member of the team ever since.
He enjoys KFC and computers.
Alex realized she wanted to be a performer from a young age. She loved singing, acting and dancing and while attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts 15 years ago, she discovered her passion and obsession for improvised comedy. She continued to train and perform with some of the best improv companies Canada has to offer, including Second City Toronto, Calgary’s Loose Moose where she won an international comedy competition,Vancouver Theatre Sports League, Vancouver’s Urban Well Improv, First Time Last and recently with Victoria’s famous Paper Street Theatre. Alexandra was a cast member in the monthly comedy panel show The Mash, and a regular cast member on the local tv show, Girls on Grapes. She is currently studying with Upright Citizens Brigade. Alexandra is a co-creator of the Victoria local improv/sketch comedy group called Entertainment Village which performs monthly sold out improv/stand up shows. Off stage you can hear her alongside Nash Park as one half of the OK, DOPE Podcast.
Morgan is an improviser, actor, comedian and layabout. He’s a dad and a father. He loves making people laugh and likes dishes done a certain way. Super jazzed (but the good jazz) to be part of Entertainment Village. You might have seen him in Atomic Vaudeville, Sin City, Phillips Comedy Night at the Mint or the May Gold buffet. When not doing jokey jokes he makes science for the government in forestry.
On a particularly rainy Sunday afternoon in 1993, Ryan and his family were having an uncharacteristically lazy day in front of the TV. While flicking through channels searching for cartoons, Ryan flipped past something that his parents recognized. They told him to go back to the channel and encouraged him to watch the movie that was on. This was a pivotal moment. The movie in question was Monty Python and the Holy Grail and it unquestionably changed Ryan’s brain and life forever.
Since that day, Ryan has been goofing around non-stop. He has no job, no practical skills, no original thoughts, often forgets his name, doesn’t know where babies come from, and for all intents and purposes is still ten years old.
He loves to make people laugh.
