With a red-hot career that already includes opening for Kevin Hart, winning Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater, and netting a headlining special for Netflix, Clint Coley has been climbing the comedy ladder faster than a fireman’s cheetah. He shares the lighting-fast wit and natural charisma that inspired D.L. Hughley of The Kings of Comedy to dub Coley as “The Prince.”
The first Improv comedy club had virtually nothing to do with comedy. Broadway producer Budd Friedman founded the now legendary franchise in 1963 as an intimate spot where performers could eat, drink coffee, and sing along to piano ditties after their shows. Soon after, the club’s first comedian, Dave Astor, tried out some new material on a whim. The stand-up set was a hit and led to the venue’s eventual transformation into a full-blown comedy club. New York’s hottest comedians would do nearly anything to be featured on the Improv stage; for instance, it’s rumored that Lily Tomlin hijacked a parked limousine in order to make a stunning entrance when first meeting Budd.
Ontario Improv lives up to the lofty reputation of its parent club by showcasing comedic heavyweights by the likes of Pablo Francisco, Bill Bellamy, and Christopher Titus. A diverse calendar draws instantly recognizable comics from the airwaves of E! and Comedy Central, but it also opens the stage to promising up-and-comers. Like a well-catered intervention, the menu surprises audiences with gourmet flavors. Baja fish tacos rev up appetites before the honey-chicken pasta serenades palates with linguine, grilled chicken, tomatoes, and mushrooms slathered in garlic-honey cream sauce and topped with parmesan cheese.
