Welcome back to Kristine Shadid, our 3rd judge and local improv and musical comedian. She’s been studying, performing and teaching improv since 2007 and is a current member of the local troupe Crush Improv. She has performed at different improv festivals nearby (Ottawa Improv Festival, Ottawa; Combustion Festival, Toronto; Big City Improv Festival, Toronto; MPROV Festival, Montreal). Her other pet project is her comedy duo band, Rhythm and Burgundy, that she co-created with her best friend Allison Harris. They’ve performed all around Ottawa and Toronto and will be back at this year’s Ottawa Fringe Festival with the appropriately named show called ‘THE COMEBACK TOUR’.
Kristine is a perfect to fit to judge the competition this Saturday because the second round (where champions are made) is highly improvised. The competitors only find out what song they perform to after the audience decides after voting by ballot that evening. We hope that Kristine is ready for the next level improv. She tells us she is very excited to watch people shred air, as it is the only instrument she genuinely knows how to play. And by instrument she means cheese grater.
