Bad Dog Theatre strives to support the Canadian Comedy scene as much as it can. Resident Companies are offered space in the building, dramaturgical support from the Artistic Director, technical support, and opportunities to present their work as it develops. We are thrilled to have this fantastic group of comedic artists working in our building.
Nick is an actor, writer and musician who has been making it up as he goes along his entire life. His 15+ years of performance work includes clown shows, puppet shows, improv shows, shows for children, punk/hardcore bands, performance art, video game voices and a butt-load of original music. He lives in the uncomfortable place where weird, sad, inappropriate and irreverent collide and is a self-described professional collaborator and renaissance man. He is the co-artistic director of Mi Casa Theatre (Ottawa) and the live musician for Bad Dog's Toronto, I Love You.
Sex T-Rex (né Sexual Tyrannosaurus) is a Toronto-based Comedy troupe whose cinematic style, wild physicality and spot-on parody has delighted audiences across Canada and the USA. Veteran improvisors, with hundreds of performances under their Cretaceous belts, Sex T-Rex branched out into scripted comedy in 2011. Their shows Callaghan! and the Wings of the Butterfly , Leviathan and Watch Out WildKat! have all garnered rave reviews and award nominations on the Canadian Fringe circuit.
Sex T-Rex is the perfect gateway drug for theatre- imaginative, fast-paced and hilarious, we put on a whirlwind show packed with action and heart.
Uncalled For is a Montreal-bred improv and sketch comedy troupe that has created such acclaimed mind-bending shows as Playday Mayday, Hypnogogic Logic andToday Is All Your Birthdays. They have toured North America and Europe, twice won the Just For Laughs Best Comedy Award at the Montreal Fringe and have a bunch of YouTube videos you should probably spread on social media.
