IMPROV JONES BOSTON has been a comedy improv troupe since the Spring of 2006. They specialize in unique home-brewed long-form improvization as well as classic "whose line is it anyway?" style short-form improv. In 2010 they became a 501(c) 3 Non-Profit organization to help support their goal of developing a high school education program.

TONY TOLEDO, Having grown up... ok, ok... having grown big in Defiance, Ohio, snuck out under the Buckeye Fence late one spring evening. He has been on an adventure ever since. He rode his bicycle from Ohio to Massachusttes to visit his cousins back in 1984. That was the first time he ever ate lobster; the first time he heard Folk Radio; the first time he'd visited Massachusetts. All three were grand.

By the fall of 1987, Tony had made Massachusetts his new home and had discovered Storytelling. It was one of those rare magic moments. He dove into the Storytelling world with both feet flapping and a heart full of passion. He studied with the best Storytellers in New England, and soon learned not to flap his feet quite so much. He took his natural ability for spinning a tale, added a bucketfull of hope and hung out his shingle in 1990. He's been telling stories full time ever since. At first it was a lot of macaroni, but now he can even afford the cheese!
