The fact that Mariana Vial hasn’t been on this show yet is kind of a tragedy. We’ve been good friends since at some point in 2001 I would guess and she’s been a talented part of the Montreal improv scene for what seems like forever. Her most recent endeavor is “The Jazz Ands” a musical improv troupe that is performing monthly at The Montreal Improve. Featuring Sandi Armstrong, Coco Belliveau, Adina Katz, Mariana Vial, Heidi Lynne Weeks, and Marie Fatima Rudolf on the Keys. Their next show is Valentine’s Day (and will subsequently most likely be following a rom-com theme) at 8:30 at Montreal Improve.
