New Year New Comedy! Announcing January Live Comedy

A new year on the calendar means a new bunch of shows are coming your way in 2019. We wouldn’t want to start the year with anything less but the toppiest-notchiest comedy we could find. Get in that first belly laugh of the year every Friday night.

FRI. JAN. 4 - M-B COMEDY #165: HEADLINERS FT. CRAIG FAY

This comic is a smooth-talking, funny-making, loveable wonder. Craig Fay has appeared on CBC's Laugh Out Loud, performed at the world famous Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and Hillside Festival in 2018. Craig's debut comedy album "Helicopter Rich" was praised as "observational and self-reflective...worth playing multiple times over" by Exclaim. This comic is going places, so catch them at M-B while you can.

Our first show of the year is a high-intensity, no holds barred, head-to-head, joke-to-joke show down between us, and the only opponent worthy… us! Round after round you decide the winner, and by the end, improvisers are left so tattered and exhausted, you’ll be wondering if they’ll be able to put on shows the rest of the year.

FRI. JAN. 18 - M-B COMEDY #167: HEADLINERS (LGBTQ+ EDISH) FT. KYLE BROWNRIGG

Kyle Brownrigg is taking the Canadian comedy scene by storm. In 2018, he taped a TV spot for CBC Halifax Comedy Festival, was a finalist Sirius XM’s national Top Comic competition, and filmed a set for The Comedy Network. Oh and he’s funny. All the LOLs of the evening will be provided by LGBTQ-identifying comedians. And all are welcome!

TUES. JAN. 22 - M-B COMEDY #168: ROOKIES (JANUARY)

Climate Change Square Updated.png

We’re teaming up with Emerge Guelph and a super special secret guest to bring you improv inspired by the positive climate change work going on in our city. Just because climate change threatens our very way of life, doesn’t mean we can’t have a laugh and celebrate those doing their best to change things. Come support change and cheer on the people in Guelph making it happen.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
