Hello internet. I’m alive. I just moved to Brooklyn and spent the last month worry about and preparing for that, and I’ll write about it someday, but for now I’m on vacation in Toronto and I feel like talking about that.
Sunday night I went to Comedy Bar and saw The Sketchersons’ show, Sunday Night Live. It’s a sketch show newly written and performed every week. (Like SNL, hence the name.) The Comedy Bar is basically my ideal comedy club. It has a bar for a lobby, that can be used whenever, with separate stages for shows. The P.I.T. in New York City is the only other example I can think of that pulls this off.
I came to the show because I saw an all-female version of The Sketchersons at this year’s Women in Comedy Festival. We had talked for a while after their show and, knowing that I’d be on vacation in Toronto, said I’d have to see them in Toronto. I was also told by several people to check out Comedy Bar, so it was a win-win. The show was really funny and I recommend checking it out. It’s been running weekly for the past seven years, so that speaks to the quality of the show itself.
This past weekend was the Del Close Marathon where I performed twice and saw a whole bunch of improv.
Saturday night was Big Gulp’s big night with a 1/2 hour time
