Event Notes

× Please note this is an in-person event.

Did you know that comedy isn’t recognized as its own art form in Canada?

Actors, playwrights, dancers, and even circus artists are eligible for discipline-specific funding, while comedians do not have access to program funding of their own. From October 25-29, 2022, catch a week of comedy and join the movement that emphatically declares: COMEDY IS ART!

Comedy is Art features some of the best comedians in Toronto. Returning to the stage for the third time since 2019, the festival offers a week-long program of talented comedians you can catch live in person or stream from home.


Some actors know their lines! Some don’t! This show matches actors who know their scripts with improvisers who don’t! It’s unpredictable, unrepeatable, unscriptable!

Featuring: Guled Abdi (TallBoyz), Ajahnis Charley (Station Eleven), Paloma Nuñez (The Republic of Sarah), Kirsten Rasmussen (Slo Pitch), Sharjil Rasool (Second City), Chelsea Russell, Kathryn Kohut & Araya Mengesha.

Hosted & Directed By: Coko Galore (Black & Funny TO)

Get ready for a night of unforgettable fun!
