Shining a spotlight on Toronto’s standup comedy community by providing the stage and audiences worthy of the incredible talent in this city!

About this event

Special to the September launch event, the lineup will feature a showcase of comedians who will headline the next year of ‘The Vong Show’ at Paradise Theatre including Elvira Kurt, Ron Josol, Rob Bebenek, Leonard Chan, Rob Pue, and Cassie Cao! We wanted to start out with a bang… and I honestly couldn’t imagine a better lineup to represent the best of what Toronto comedy has to offer!

‘The Vong Show’ is a celebration of all the unique voices that make Toronto the most diverse city in the world. It’s fitting that the show will take place at Paradise Theatre because to me Toronto is a paradise for comedy. I’ve recently performed in New York City and Los Angeles and honestly I believe that Toronto is at the forefront of comedy. It’s time we get the recognition we deserve as a standup comedy powerhouse.

Launching September 22 and continuing monthly ‘The Vong Show’ will feature a Canadian headliner performing a full album-length set, a feature act, and a rising star opening act taking the stage to showcase their comedy on a stage worthy their talents. (Format on opening night slightly differs, see below.)

Ultimately, ‘The Vong Show’ is my love letter to Toronto. I want Toronto’s comedy scene to see itself the way that I see it, so join me in helping Toronto take our rightful place as one of the comedy capitals of the world!

All performances will be filmed live with a 9-camera, 12-microphone setup. One 45-minute headliner set will be produced and released as a full comedy special. The 15-minute feature set will be produced and released on ‘The Vong Show’ YouTube channel including watch parties for all episode premieres. The headliner’s audio recording will be output as a comedy album to be released across audio streaming services while the feature's set may be released as part of a compilation album.

Please note that due to the nature of live tapings, there will be no late entries allowed into the theatre once the doors close. Additionally, no audience cameras are allowed to be filming on-stage content.
