“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.

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.
