EXHIBITION | Look Hear! Presents The Keyhole Sessions
There's absolutely nothing wrong with a little unbridled sexual expression, even if it's physical manifestation is restrained. Case in point: The fetish-based art exhibition and live bondage demonstration happening tonight in the dark and sultry space under The Stirling Room Bar. If you've ever been curious about any of the above, you have The Keyhole Sessions to thank for their window into all things deviant and forbidden. Caution: Experience at your own risk!
The Stirling Room (55 Mill Street, Building 36, Suite 100), 9pm $5
VARIETY | Short Shorts! Part V
Short Shorts is a modern take on the traditional variety show both content-wise and in degree of appropriateness. One component, a live interactive drinking game quiz, where the prize is a large amount of beer, gives you an idea of the pace of the evening. Other magical moments of the night will be stand-up acts from Dotty Davis and Steve Patrick Adams, a little live performance by rap duo Poetik Justiz, and the main event - an hour of short films from the funniest filmmakers, comedians and sketch troupes.
The Supermarket (268 Augusta Avenue), 7:30pm $5
COMEDY | The Adjective Nouns & Friends Extravaganza
The hilarious Nick Beaton brings his talent and charisma to The Rivoli tonight for the new Headliner Series, featuring the best and the brightest in "sketch stylings." Not to miss are The Adjective Nouns and their unique approach to standup and supporting them will be Big Tease and Radio Vault. Who doesn't love an extravaganza? Tonight's will be of epic proportion.
The Rivoli (332 Queen Street West), 8:30pm PWYC
