Toronto Improv Fest coverage

The Toronto Improv Fest, which runs through this weekend, is previewed in an article from Now Toronto: Sutton's Buttons, which focuses on Bassprov.

Unlike a lot of improv acts, Bassprov shows develop with a less-than-maniacal pace. Donny and Earl are slow talkers whose silences communicate as much as their quips.

"The pace gives you time to think and lets you really develop things," says Sutton. "It shows that it's perfectly OK to listen and think, as long as the audience stays with you. A lot of other shows don't have that luxury."
