A MONTREAL vs. HALIFAX Comedy Battle

Last year Toronto Comedy All-Stars presented Your Hood’s A Joke, a new series of knock-down drag-out comedy battles between Toronto’s most uproarious neighbourhoods. After months of matchups, it all came down to the ultimate fight: EAST versus WEST. Once the dust settled the WEST was declared supreme rulers of the Toronto comedy scene. In 2015, Your Hood’s A Joke promises to be an even bigger clash of epic proportions with comedic titans teaming up and squaring off in honour of their respective hoods.

On January 24, Your Hood’s A Joke presents a special National battle featuring comedians originally hailing from two hilarious cities in Canada, MONTREAL versus HALIFAX. The MONTREAL team consisting of Jon Malanos (Absolute Comedy), Faisal Butt (SiriusXM Top Comic) and Ali Hassan (George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight) will go head-to-head against the HALIFAX team; represented by Merv Hartlen (Pop Montreal), Dave Burke (Sensory Overload) and Kyle Hickey (NXNE) as they fight for comedic domination. Will comedians from the home of This Hour Has 22 Minutes and Ellen Page, lay claim to the funniest city? Or will les comédiens truly prove they are just for laughs?

Comedian and founder of Toronto Comedy All-Stars, Danish Anwar will host this battle for the right to be called the funniest of all the land. Born and raised in Moscow, Anwar is the only Russian-Born-Indian-Bengali-Canadian-Comic (that we know of!). An accomplished stand-up comedian, Anwar is trilingual and was a finalist in JFL42’s Funniest Torontonian Award.

Toronto Comedy All-Stars is dedicated to promoting the Toronto comedy community and providing opportunities for local talent to perform across Ontario. Along with year-round Toronto comedy events, Toronto Comedy All-Stars produces comedy showcases at Ottawa’s prestigious Arts Court Theatre where they will next present comedian Aparna Nancherla (Conan) on March 7.
