Tyre and Kerb Launch Party

Toronto improviser and comedian Amy Zuch is hosting a show and signing event to launch the official release of a daily news based comic. Recapping the biggest news events from 2011, the show will feature live improvised comic drawing in combination with improv performances by top Toronto comedians.

On December 29th 2011, in the Comedy Bar cabaret space, Amy will be joined by veterans Jan Caruana, Lisa Merchant, Alex Hatz, Carmine Lucarelli, James Gangl and Kerry Griffin. Ron Sparks will also be there to deliver the week’s news. Projected, live iPad drawings complete the amazing lineup, and will be affected by the comedy onstage.

The webcomic Tyre & Kerb previewed for 3 months, beginning in August 2011. The start of the new year will bring the official launch and daily comic posts will return once again! Each comic is based on a news event from the past 24 hours and includes a link to the original news article.

In addition to the show, the event will feature giveaways… including a Kobo EReader!

Printed comics, merchandise and displays will also be present, and Amy Zuch will be available for signings and Q&A.
