Sugar Sammy, Gina Brillon and Alonzo Bodden had me in tears laughing. A beautiful venue with a good matured audience. Nothing was left untouched. Relationships, LGBT, Race, religion, nationalities and of course poking at #45. Really a great night!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

We’re unsure if Massey Hall has a coat check/bag check. Best to contact the box office at Massey Hall and enquire.
