Bad Dog Comedy Theatre
Bad Dog Comedy Theatre is the product of the Bad Dog Theatre Company, an award-winning Toronto theatre company that is home to Toronto's longest running improv show, Theatresports , and professional-level in-house programming. The organization is also known for their variety of classes for youth, beginners and advanced improvisors. Located in Bloorcourt where Baltic Avenue used to be, Bad Dog Comedy Theatre is a newly renovated space for classes, shows and rentals.
Up one flight of stairs, the theatre lobby is stocked with a full bar, some seating and the box office. In addition to cocktails, the bar offers comedian-appropriate deals ($5 cans of PBR) and some light snacks. The actual theatre is located down a short hallway.
The space is intimate and well-planned with raked seating (64 seats plus ten folding chairs for extra-busy nights) that covers two sides of the stage. Compared to other comedy venues around the city, the theatre's raked seating definitely gives it a boost - small, yet important details can be missed when a large proportion of the audience can't see the performers below the waist (nothing is worse than missing a good mimed crotch joke).
Because the seats span two sides instead of going straight back, it's much easier to hear and interact (when necessary) than other longer and narrower spaces. The theatre also has a raised tech booth for lighting and sound as well as a green room for performers and a classroom space. Bad Dog Theatre Company also offers their space as an event venue to outside renters. Rates are negotiable.
The new Bad Dog Comedy Theatre is a great place to see some of Canada's best improvisors or produce your own show. The new space is intimate, comfortable and perfect for a fun night out or first date - just make sure your date is cool with PBR and mimed crotch jokes first.
