Umbrella Taxi Service

August 11th, 2012 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

For a couple months now, we have been waiting for the perfect rainy day. Running an event such of this is very difficult, because of the inconsistency of weather. More than once we planned the event, and then had to cancel due to lack of rain. But finally, our day came! Our team hit the streets outside Bathurst subway station, helping people get to and from the subway.

It was fun helping these people out, but also really amazing to be able to walk and get to know random people who took us up on our service. The Umbrella Taxi Service was a huge success!

Proposal Flashmob

When Ray asked us if we could do something special for his proposal to his fiancee we knew exactly what to do. We called our old friend Oliver Bailey (you might remember him from the Best Busker Ever) and asked him to write a song for a flashmob.
