Live Show Recaps

Third Frames: just another Saturday night in Toronto

By some feat of scheduling magic, this past weekend saw both Todd Barry and Kyle Kinane visit Toronto for shows at Comedy Bar. Barry took over the Friday night, and both comics split the Saturday night in the mainspace, with an extra midnight set by Kinane in the new cabaret space.

(Also: Attendance by actress Juliette Lewis, who swung by with the intent to see Barry, but wound up catching Kinane’s set instead.)

Not a bad evening, all things considered. Pics after the jump.
