Mar 6 – Comedy Bar Mainstage – 9:00pm
Anders Yates brings a taste of the surreal comedy he has long created with his troupe Uncalled For, mixed with a dose of political satire and a great deal of self-deprecating queer sensibility. After years of collaboration with brilliant people, Anders is now creating work that isn’t beholden to tired sketch comedy tropes like dialogue, chemistry, or sharing a dressing room. Plus, now that he’ll no longer be standing next to anybody else, Anders hopes you won’t notice how weirdly tall he is.
One of Toronto’s longest-running solo sketch comedians, Jon Blair packs an entire sketch troupe’s worth of eccentric characters, maddening plot twists, strange stories and high drama into the weary yet brave frame of a single man. See the experimental solo sketch happening that often has people saying “I’m at a Jon Blair show and I’m enjoying myself!”
