More from the Toronto Improv Festival

Well, I certainly had a good time last week.

Torontos own DHARMA

Toronto's own DHARMA

I had the luxury of attending the Toronto Improv Festival every night at Comedy Bar, conveniently located within stumbling-home-drunk distance from my humble abode (I won’t lie – that heavily influenced my apartment selection). The place was rockin’, good friends were seen (both at the venue and sleeping in my living room), and fantastic improv was performed. And to top it off, I participated in a workshop with the delightful Zach Ward, visiting from North Carolina to co-produce the festival.

If you missed the photos from opening night, take a peek back a few posts. Shots from Friday and Saturday nights can be seen after the jump. They include: Full Contact, The Belmont Transfer, DHARMA, Exes & Oh’s, Robot Junkie, Mrs Estherhouse, Unleashed, Surf ‘N Turf, Traffic Jelly, and the All-Star Show.
