All Good Things... . April 17.

All Good Things...
A tribute to the Tim Sims Playhouse

The Toronto Second City is moving out of it's current digs at 56 Blue Jays Way. And, while the mainstage show will return - after a hiatus - to a new venue, there are currently no plans to reestablish the Tim Sims Playhouse elsewhere.

As a small and affordable theatrical venue, the Playhouse has been a great asset to the Toronto comedy community.

It will close it's doors on Sunday, April 17th with a blow-out show that will probably be very very long. But also, very free. Sponsored by Lindsay Leese and Andrew Alexander and Produced by the brothers Shehori, All Good Things... will feature round abouts 30 acts (that's right, bring a snack) paying tribute to the playhouse.

IRON COBRA will be there. We have 3-5 minutes to entertain you.

IRON COBRA's Fishbowl of Comedy. April 24.

IRON COBRA announces the IRON COBRA Fishbowl of Comedy.

This will be IRON COBRA's big fundraiser show for the trip to the Chicago Improv Festival. That's right, IRON COBRA.

But more important that raising funds, this show will be great.

It will be packed to the gills (Get it? Fish. Fish have gills.) with special guests and we'll have some crap for sale. New buttons designed by the amazing Emma Segal are in the works and t-shirts by the beguiling Hazel Bell-Koski are also rhumoured to be unveiled.
