Tonto's Nephews Welcome You and Your Friends 

Hello and Welcome Friends and Fans of Tonto's Nephews.

Wanna know who we are?

Tonto's Nephews are Canada's Best Native Improv/Sketch Comedy Troupe and they call Toronto home. This Comedic Quartet consists of four core members. The Nephews are Herbie Barnes, Sid Bobb, Darrel Dennis, and Ryan McMahon. The Nephews show is a full force, high energy, quick witted storytelling adventure. The Nephews Comedy Stylings are influenced by the stories of the Trickster, the Raven, and Coyote and the Nephews are fortunate to be one of the very few Culturally Exclusive troupes in Canada. Most of the performers have been working together in some form for over seven years and each have studies at the Second City Training Centre in Toronto.

What to Expect from Tonto's Nephews?

What happens when you let a bunch of Native Guys run around on stage doing satires and parodies of the social behaviour of everyday Canadians? The Nephews can deliver 5 minutes of comedy or they can tailor a 2 hour show to fit your communities needs. Tonto's Nephews headline show is a jam packed hour of Short Form Improv (Who's Line Is It Anyway) and Longform Improv (a One Act Improvised Play). The show is tailored and trimmed to fit your communities needs. It is the job of The Nephews to make you laugh, cry, and pee your pants. Just come to a show and find out what all of the buzz is about before these fine actors end up disappearing in the United States, guest starring as the token person of color in an episode of Friends or Baywatch.
