Comedy Bar Presents a Special Night in Support of Comedy Girl
Mon, 24 April 2017, 8:00 PM – 10:30 PM EDT
Who runs the world?
Celebrated comic Dawn Whitwell has been actively advocating for an increased female presence in Toronto’s stand-up community for all her career. Not one to stand around and wait, in 2008, she created a place for women to develop and hone their comedic skills and Comedy Girl was born.
In less than 10 years, she has given a serious boost to Toronto's female comedy scene and along the way, trained 100’s of amateur comedians and a few (now) seasoned pros. AND as if that were not enough, something extra-special happened along the way. Comedy Girl not only turned out some serious stand up talent, it allowed hundreds of women, young and old, to find their voice through bolstered self-esteem.
Now it's time to take the show on the road. It's time to take Comedy Girl to the rest of the country and give the gift of laughter and confidence to all Canadian girls.
So join us, April 24th, 2017, as The Comedy Bar Presents a Night in Support of Comedy Girl. Our goal is simple. Help us raise the seed money to take Comedy Girl across Canada and partner with like-minded organizations. This particular evening is proudly supported by CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health). We are thrilled to have a portion of the proceeds be donated to a worthy and important cause.
That’s it. But that's not all.
About the LINE UP. This is not your Grandma's fundraiser folks. We went out and got the BEST. OF. THE. BEST. Some Comedy Girls. Mostly serious pros.
The night, hosted by Dawn, will feature: Sara Hennessey, Hoodo Hersi, Dee Roderique, Deb Belcourt, Zoe Whittall, Jackie Pirico, Danita Steinberg, Valentine Ho & Kathleen Phillips.
YEAH - THAT LINEUP.
Tickets are $50.
