The Underground Comedy & Social Club is Toronto’s best kept secret! Located on the Eastside of Toronto. It’s the first 420 friendly Comedy Club, and welcomes the best cutting edge comedy, burlesque, music and podcasts Toronto has to offer. Aside from our scheduled performers, you never know who’s going to show up!
The Underground strives to bring you entertainment as it was meant to be, in a friendly environment free of the rules and politics that usually confine genius. We will skirt the norms of the industry, and present to the audience the best shows possible. We target performers who support the movement and give them the best possible rates we can, often paying them more than the average club, which in my opinion underpays our truthsayers. We are hardcore Deathsquad fans and this place is a sanctuary for cats like Joe Rogan, Ari Shaffir, Jamie Kilstein, Todd Glass, Big Jay Oakerson, Boyd Banks, Scott Thompson, Tim Steeves, Debra DiGiovanni and Kenny Robinson just to start naming a few. Plus we’re bringing in more cats like Rory Scovel, Tony Hinchcliffe and Brian Redban!
Our music nights are a lot of fun and always involve bands that are my friends, including performances by The Salads, Killin’ Time Band, Lo-Fi, Mob Barley & The Railers and a few blues, jazz and rap numbers. One day we’ll have a bigger venue where we can rock the room hard, but for now the bands play amazing acoustic sessions and we just hotbox them!
We cater to the medical marijuana community, our local neighbourhood, a few from out-of-town, and the odd mom who managed to get a babysitter and escape for the night! After 7 years in the ‘hood, we’ve established a nice solid relationship with the community and our clients appreciate the quiet private atmosphere we’ve generated.
