Bad Dog Theatre Company review 1 Users say 5/5 Rate it

Toronto is known for its comedic improvisers, the most famous being Mike Myers, the Kids in the Hall, Colin Mochrie and improv guru Bruce Hunter. The breeding ground for this talent was Theatresports, which, after a turbulent run at Toronto's Poor Alex Theatre, went under to be replaced by Bad Dog Theatre. This full-time improvisational venue presents an eclectic range of shows - everything from Harry Potter parodies ('Hairy Patter & the Improvisers Stone') to an open comedy jam such as Midweek Mayhem. They offer a weekly free 'drop-in' one-hour improv class, so adventurous types can try their hand. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, tinged with a bit of inventive agitation.

Hey Time Out Toronto,
Thanks for the shout-out... we couldn't agree more!

Heads-up for folks looking to check out some live unscripted comedy with us (either onstage or from the happy safety of the audience): our new home base is Comedy Bar, located at 945 Bloor St. W. - just across the street from the Delaware exit of the Ossington subway station.

We have professional shows every Wednesday and Saturday (and some Thursdays/Fridays, too) and our students storm the stage every Tuesday night. We still host a weekly drop-in on Saturdays at 6pm. It's $5 and includes a ticket to our 7pm show.

Details about all of our shows & classes - for adults & teens of all levels of experience - can be found on our website:

Hope to see you soon!
Julie Dumais Osborne, Artistic Director
