Toronto's Indie Comedy Hour is a new favourite in the city's small but burgeoning indie comedy scene. Forget corporate comedy clubs, noisy sports bars, or dingy back rooms. This show highlights the best comedians in the city, providing them with an elegant and comfortable space in which to shine.The show's venue, No One Writes to the Colonel, is already host to the popular Toronto Mothup storytelling show as well as the Short and Sweet curated film evenings. The bar is decked out in a sophisticated yet comfortable vintage decor in which to enjoy the evening's acts as well as the bar's handcrafted cocktails.
The show has featured performances from Hannibal Buress (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock), Bob Kerr (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Hotbox), Marco Bernardi (Cream of Comedy 2010), to name but a few. The show is beloved by comics and audiences alike for its curatorial touch and loyal audience. Each show closes out with an open mic showcasing up-and-comers who may be featured acts in upcoming editions of the Indie Comedy Hour.
The next edition of the Indie Comedy Hour happens Wednesday, October 19, 2011at 8pm. The show is independently booked and produced by local comic and show producer Catherine McCormick and is a Pay What You Want event.
