Anyka Davis

Bio

Part-time improver, full-time fool, Anyka Davis took to comedy like a duck takes to water. Some say she came out of the womb laughing. Others… weren’t there.

When she’s not laughing/wheezing/cackling, she’s talking about books and diversity.

While working in Toronto, she signed up for improv classes at Second City and soon fell with the Weird Town crowd. When she’s not attending improv or sketch, she’s arguing about pop culture, wandering museums, or making pretty PowerPoints at her day job.

Ryan Riddell

Actor

Bio

Ryan is your friendly neighbourhood IT guy, who grew up in suburbia watching SNL and Monty Python. Always interested in comedy, he took the plunge into improv, and stumbled right into Weird Town. When he’s away from Town, he can be found trying to get people to play moderately complex board games, or dealing with the curse of home ownership.

Liz Myers

Actor / Stand Up Comic 

Bio

Liz signed up for an improv class alongside Emily Milling on a drunken whim. Realizing most of her improv leaned towards long monologues she decided to try her hand at stand up comedy. Liz is painfully extroverted and constantly on the move, like a shark. You’ll probably find her walking around the city, drinking beer with strangers, or ranting about how much she likes boats.
