THURS OCT 31 / LAUGH SABBATH / COMEDY BAR / 945 BLOOR W / 930PM / $5
Remember back in the day, when rappers starting teaming up with R&B singers? Whatchu know about Ill Al Skratch & Brian McKnight!? Anyhoo, it was a huge hit, with the idea to have entirely contrasting styles on the same joint originating from the reggae duo Chaka Demus & Pliers. What does this have to do with comedy?
Well, in recent weeks, I've wrote about my adoration for the stand-up work of Sara Hennessey and Steph Kaliner. So, when I found out that they were teaming up to host Laugh Sabbath, the show became a must-have in this week's round up. What a great pairing! Sara's bursting with energy, and her act outs kill me every time. Steph, in contrast, is more quiet and shy in her approach, which I also love.
