COMEDY Best Scene Reading of The Masses by Toni Nagy

The Masses is a post-partisan, omni-racial, multi-gender, quasi-radical, sketch comedy show that represents the perspective of the artistic and creative counter-culture that is actually the mainstream. The tone will be the “Twilight Zone” meets sketch comedy – creating scenarios that are rooted both in reality and in our surreal dystopian not-too-distant future. Centered on a cast that will range in ages from 18 to 80 and will be so racially/sexually/bodily diverse that Benetton ads will cower in shame; The Masses will contain social commentary peppered with absurdity and pure hilarity.

Bill: Liam Kinahan
The Vagina: Mandy May Cheetham
Narrator: Sean Ballantyne
Charles: Adrian Currie
