Description


NOTE: Online tickets are SOLD OUT! But, we do have a few tickets at the door. We are producing another excellent shoe at 10:00 pm called The Comedy Party (https://feb2020comedyparty.eventbrite.ca).

Comedy Nuggets presents The Funniest Show on The Danforth which is is THE MOST UNIQUELY ENTERTAINING comedy/variety show ON EARTH.

Toronto’s finest comedians (stand-up, improv, sketch) unite for a fast-paced evening of hilarity. Monthly, The Funniest Show on The Danforth showcases comedians which have performed at comedy festivals such as Just for Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Halifax Comedy Festival, Toronto Sketch Festival, Montreal Sketch Festival, Boston Improv Festival, and Big City Improv Festival (Toronto).

Here is a little about each of the performers in the show.

MATT HENRY
Comedian Matt Henry, can only be described as different. Since 2005, The Canadian Rasta has been looking to bring his very own brand of individualism to the constantly evolving world of Stand Up Comedy. Whether you need a host for your club, private function, or even a show produced from the ground up; two time Edinburgh Fringe Festival participant Comedian Matt Henry is committed to putting on the best performance. From London Ontario to London England, Whitby’s Comedian Matt Henry shows no signs of slowing down. Matt has worked alongside some of Canada and North America’s top and unique acts including The Hardcore Legend Mic Folly, The Man of 1000 Voices Micheal Winslow, Gilbert Godfried, Darren Frost, Ron Josel, Kenny Robinson and more. It can be a table of six or a theatre of six-thousand, Comedian Matt Henry will always be looking to innovate every time he hits the stage.

KRIS BONAPARTE
With a unique laid bac delivery and a long repertoire of hilarious, often twisted stories, Kris Bonaparte is a proven crown pleaser. Since he first touched a mic in 1995 Bonaparte has oerformed and produced shows in several cities through his self proclaimed "Canada's coolest brand of comedy" Premium Comedy.

JADE NILES-CRAIG
Jade is an up and coming performer with a background in music, theatre, and get this - musical theatre. Now regularly performing stand-up and drag, and hosting weekly queer karaoke at Garage on Church, they’ll say yes to pretty much anything that involves stage time (or snacks). Jade has been featured on Yas Kween, 420 Comedy Festival, JFL42, and the Ted X Youth conference. On the off chance that they’re not in a stage, they can likely be found somewhere crying into a cheesecake.

THOMAS PATRICE
Thomas Patrice is done everything from Toronto's Absolute Comedy, The Laugh Factory, Yuk Yuk's, to Montreal's Club soda, The Comedy Works and the Comedy Nest.

TAMARA SHEVON
Tamara is a Toronto-based comic who started her comedic story-telling through wine-coloured glasses in Bejing, China. Since then, she has been blazing through the Toronto scene with her characteristic wit and her lovable ability to flirt with the boundaries of the socially acceptable. Tamara produces and hosts the popular Against the Collar Comedy Show. Tamara has performed stand up all over China, Canada, and the United States and was second runner-up in the Beijing Improv Comedy Festival.

QUINN C. MARTIN
Quinn has performed in Just For Laughs and NXNE as well as movies and some of your favourite commercials and TV shows. He has been killing it all around the country, and has even blessed stages in the USA with his quick wit and relatable story-telling. He will have you saying "OMG that's so true" before and after you laugh

GAVIN STEPHENS
Gavin is a stand-up comedian skillfully balances playful irony and morbid silliness; he is known for his (really) quick wit and stream of consciousness comedic style. Gavin has been featured in Montreal, & Toronto’s Just For Laughs Festivals. As well as the Cape Town Comedy fest, and Austin’s SXSW, alongside comedy legends Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress and Marc Maron.
