Double Trouble (Part of Canned Laughter)
December 9 @ 9:30 pmPay What You Can
Comedy Nuggets presents Double Trouble Comedy Show which is a stand-up hybrid, which brings two very different comics onstage to perform side by side. This show delivers double the comics, double the laughs, and double the trouble.
Comedy Nuggets has partnered with the Canadian Comedy Awards to include Double Trouble Comedy Show as part of Canned Laughter which is a simultaneous comedy show taking place at a dozen comedy venues in Toronto. All shows are free with a non-perishable food item for the Daily Bread Food Bank.
Here is a little about each of the performers in the show. (still confirming two more comics):

Amanda is the loudest girl you’ll ever meet. She doesn’t even need a mic. She’s a recent second city graduate and is fairly new to the Toronto Comedy scene. Prior to comedy, she studied Theatre at York, specializing in Playwriting. Throughout her teenage years and early twenties, she did a lot of Community/Indie theatre. Currently, she is competing in Toronto Comedy Brawl, and when she’s not on stage she’s still blabbing up a storm elsewhere because this girl never shuts up even in her sleep. She often hears that she reminds some of the comedian Janeane Garofalo. She may be new, but she is known by many to own the stage she walks on with her stage presence, because that costed her $40000.
Sebastian is a stand-up comedian and writer hailing from Toronto, Ontario, known for his snappy one-liners, clever wordplay, and his self-deprecating style.

Sumeet is a therapist and funny person from Toronto. For years, he dreamed of being a stand-up comedian. However, it was only when he finally followed his passion by taking an improv class at The Social Capital in the spring of 2018 that something dormant was awakened in him. A few months later, he registered for a stand up comedy class at Absolute Comedy, which gave him the skills and courage to perform on stage. Now he uses humour as a way to explore and shed light on personal, social, and cultural issues.
Angela is an adorable comic she will delight you in away that will have you gigling for days.
