He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to see The Boom comedy troupe (a $20 value) at The Supermarket on Augusta Avenue. Choose between the following options:
- Performance featuring Nick Flanagan, Dom Pare, and special musical guest Doctor Ew on January 27 at 9:00 p.m.
- Performance featuring Georgea Brooks-Hancock, Ben Miner, and Mark Debonis on February 24 at 9:00 p.m.
The Boom summons snorts from Toronto crowds with an incantation of avant-garde comedy that spastically amalgamates standup routines, sketches, mixed media, and musical numbers. Bad knees receive the punishment they deserve as guests garner hilarious and strange new insights on a number of topics, such as ordering a pizza or reading the family dog passages of Orwellian literature. Monthly shows usually feature guest gut ticklers and, on occasion, monkey ticklers.
Bolster your comedic banquet with a goblet of beer and a tabletop vaudeville act performed by acrobatic Asian-inspired finger food at The Supermarket, a vibrant eatery and bar that regularly hosts a series of entertaining spectacles.
You must be 16 years old and older to attend.
- But when they come together with the other six Boom members, the result is sometimes raw, sometimes crude, yet always original performances ranging from sketch and stand up routines to short films and musical numbers. – Lorianna De Giorgio, Town Crier
- Also known as “alternative,” signifying comics who are trying to push the envelope. Hence, no airplane food jokes. – Glenn Sumi, Now magazine
