Let's Kill Mavis! “Let’s Kill Mavis!” is a live sketch comedy revue from new Denver-based sketch group Token Boy. Complete with videos, goofy voiceovers & sound effects, and maybe even a musical number or two, “Let’s Kill Mavis!” serves as a glimpse into a day in the life of barely-noticeable background character, Mavis. Spoiler alert: see show title.


Suzanne Slade has been singing professionally for over 20 years. Living most of her life in NYC, Suzanne pursued a long theater and acting career before finding solace in Denver for the past 2 years. Notable performances: Maureen (RENT Nat’l Tour), Sally Bowles (Cabaret), Maggie ( A Chorus Line), The Witch (Into the Woods). Suzanne also currently fronts the nerd rock band, Daenerys and the Targaryens, a Game of Thrones themed band in Denver. She has also worked with the Magnet Theater (NYC; Armando Diaz) in their circuit teams as well as the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse in Denver.

Jennifer Sutherland is a Denver native eagerly awaiting the zombie apocalypse. She is excited to be writing and performing comedy with Token Boy after several years behind the camera on film crews as a special effects artist.

When currently-23yr-old Jackie Esbin was in kindergarten, her parents would watch SNL reruns while Jackie sat next to them. Not knowing exactly what was happening onscreen, but seeing how it made her parents laugh, caused a light bulb to go off in Jackie’s brain. When her kindergarten teacher asked the class what they wanted to be when they grow up, Jackie proclaimed “I want to be a comedian!” But comedy was just a dream until her senior year of high school, when she started performing improv and writing. The rest, as they say, is history…in the making! In addition to sketches with Token Boy, Jackie can be seen at the Voodoo performing with improv teams Offbrand and Scoundrel.

Chad McNaughton is a writer/comedian/musician who learned to write sketches on the mean streets of Oklahoma City, then at the Second City Training Center in Chicago, and more recently through Denver’s own Grafenberg Productions. As a founding member of Oklahoma City comedy group Little Tiny Brain, he was a writer/producer/performer in their popular Bad Pilot Night shows that ran in OKC for 6yrs, and has performed various forms of improv, stand-up, podcasting, and acting since 2008. Chad has lived in CO since 2014, and still has no friends.
