The Underground Comedy & Social Club is Toronto’s best kept secret! Located on the Eastside of Toronto. It’s the city’s only true 420 friendly Comedy Club, meaning we are not open if there’s a show! We only open if the show is good and we produce the best cutting edge comedy, burlesque and variety shows that 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 this place has been a showcase for cats like Ari Shaffir, Sam Tripoli, Joe Rogan. Felipe Esparza, Tony Hinchcliffe, Rory Scovel, Eric Andre, Todd Glass, Big Jay Oakerson, Sandra Battaglini, Mike Wilmot, Boyd Banks, Scott Thompson, Deanne Smith, Tim Steeves and Kenny Robinson just to start naming a few!
We cater to the medical marijuana community, our local neighbourhood, a few from out-of-town, and the parents who managed to get a babysitter and escape for the night! After over 10 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.
