Bearing his namesake, Faulconbridge's Falling Down is the brain child of veteran stand-up comedian and Canadian improv gem, Scott Faulconbridge.
Calling Hamilton his comedy home for the past 10 years, it was only natural that he wanted to highlight all the talent and funny-business that Steel Town has to offer.
Known to delight international audiences with his masterful timing, quirky story telling and quick improvisational wit, Scott has established himself as one of Canada’s favourite headlining acts.
His unique stories and songs are inspired by family mishaps that have made him a crowd favourite for three decades. His tenacious work ethic and sharp wit have earned him three CanadianComedy Award nominations, recurring appearances on CBC’s ‘The Debaters’, ‘LOL’, and ‘Day 6’. He has written for CBC’s ‘Still Standing’ and has been seen on numerous televised comedy specials including CTV’s ‘Comedy Now’, CBC‘s ‘Comics’, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The Halifax Comedy Festival and over a dozen appearances at the internationally acclaimed Just For Laughs Festival.
Most importantly, he continues to foster the local comedy community through teaching his craft to newcomers and peers, alike, and can't wait to highlight this talent throughout the first season of Faulconbridge's Falling Down.
As a self-proclaimed Dream Activator (ok, we made that up), comedy student-turned-collaborator Sloggett has joined forces with Faulconbridge for the ultimate venture into a life-long dream towards making an original sketch show.
Hot off the tails of a successful producer debut with 2 seasons of “This Is The Thing” (Bell Fibe TV1), Ashley Sloggett is no stranger to the business of show; she was Scott's first call for co-executive producer to try and make this all happen. (Spoiler alert: it's happening!).
Accomplished musician, actress and production manager, she brings her widespread arsenal of tools, creativity and punk rock DIY ethos to help make things happen. She’s performed with the likes of Walk Off The Earth, Dennis Dunnaway/Alice Cooper, Teenage Head and Gordon Lightfoot and is a Second City Toronto trained improviser and actress.
With over 15 years experience executing and marketing grassroots projects, large scale client work and long-term live concert series; her professionalism and enthusiasm for performing was a no-brainer for partnering on Faulconbridge's Falling Down.
Accomplished comedian turned Hamilton comedy scene paladin, Patrick Coppolino joins forces as Faulconbridge’s Falling Down director and co-producer.
There’s gonna be a whole bunch more nice stuff about him here, we just have to think of it.
He rules though, trust us.
Known affectionately as “The Dude”, Manolis Zontanos is a veteran Canadian standup comedian from Hamilton, Ontario who has appeared on The Comedy Network, Just For Laughs, MTV Canada & more.
Touring the world as a comedian, Manolis has worked with the likes of Russell Peters, Ari Shaffir and Rick Shapiro.
Truly whimsical and funny as hell; Manolis was a must-have for the main cast of Faulconbridge's Falling Down.
