Standup comedy can be used as a machine of destruction. A weapon of words. A powerful force for the common good. I mean, it can also just be a bunch of comics you’ve seen in Canadian car commercials doing something new on-stage in a bar you like.
But tonight at Kensington’s COALITION LOUNGE it’s comedy for a cause. Toronto comics standing up to do stand-up, and stand up against Cystic Fibrosis.
Host/Producer RUSH ZILLA presents “FEMME COM”, a line-up of homegrown heavy hitters and some of Toronto’s fastest rising young female comics. Seasoned crowd killers and up-and-coming comics, with guest special guest headliner PRECIOUS CHONG (Sex & The Single Parent, The Groundlings, Funny or Die)
Featuring the wicked hilarious likes of CAMILLE COTE JHANELLE DENNIS (Runnin At The Mouth, Comedy at Lola) LUCY GERVAIS (The Lucy Gervais Show) CATHRYN NAIKER (Down in the Post podcast) PAULA BLACKMAN, AMIL NIAZI
All for the low low price of a $5 donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada (you can of course, pay what you can. And you’re more than welcome to donate more!)
It all kicks off tonight at COALITION LOUNGE, Kensington Market.
