Lise has never eaten a raw oyster, nor does she intend to. Lise has also been performing improv for the better part of the past decade and boasts over 300 shows. Lise will eat oysters cooked, though.. Like oysters ‘rockefeller’. She likes that recipe.
Pickle Party premiered the world stage not 6 months ago at the ever flourishing Sketch Republic. Their hearts won the crowd and were royally granted a spot in the Montreal Sketchfest where they happened to be royally crowned “good enough” to be cordially invited to perform at the special, spectacular Fringe Sketch Republic! And It didn’t stop there. Oh no! Knight were writhing with laughter in that sauna of a performance hall and demanded that they perform at the prestigious and world renowned LadyFest 2016!
Pickle Party is Emily Bilton, Martha Graham and Nicky Fournier.
The O.C. is a sketch duo hailing from Toronto. Caroline Benstead (Carol) and Olivia Brodie-Dinsdale (Tell It to My Thighs) joined forces when they completed the Second City Conservatory Program. They have been described as “upcoming” “hilarious” and “Academy Award winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis”. One of those is a lie but they’re beyond excited to get weird with Ladyfest 2016!
Dominant Wolf (Montreal/Toronto)
Dominant Wolf is what happened after Cassie Barradas punched Amanda McQueen in the boob but before Amanda retaliated. And it is a sketch duo as well.

Amanda grew up across the street from an alligator filled bayou in Houston, Texas. She wishes she could sing like Justin Hawkins.
This chick, Amanda Xeller, brings you pieces that aren’t narrative, aren’t really autobiographical, but comedy featuring characters and scenarios that are earnest, honest, wonderful, and, of course, very very silly.
