$10 tickets available at the door

Comedians are matched up by style but it’s not a roast. The only winner is the audience!

Host/creator: Patrick Russell

During the pandemic, I was at home watching the VERZUZ music matchups created by legendary producers Timberland and Swizz Beats. There was excitement and a lot of hype around seeing popular artists go head to head with the utmost respect for each other. I wanted to bring that same approach to comedy. What if we match comedians up by style? Eureka! VERSUZ COMEDY. After some tweaking with the format, I finally found the perfect sweet spot for the amount of time each comic should get and when the next performer should speak. The result was pure magic. Comedians young and old, inexperienced and veteran, dirty and clean, were getting huge laughs in the non-roast format. This format really is for anyone. Top comedy stars from the GTA join the fun.

The matchups are:

Dirty: Jessie Olsen VS Hannah Veldhoen

Storyteller: Patrick Russell VS Kari Johnson

Crowdwork: Himansu Patel VS Dan Brennan

One-liner: Ronen Geisler VS Brandon Zakkai

Dark: Sarah Boston VS. Sebastian Fazio

 

DOORS: 8:15pm
