About the Bad Dog Theatre Company

For over 35 years, the award-winning Bad Dog Theatre Company (previously known as Theatresports Toronto) has specialized in the art of unscripted comedy and improvised performance, and has provided affordable, accessible improv training for thousands of people of all ages and experience.

Voted Best Small Theatre Company in Toronto (2017) by the readers of NOW Magazine and led by renowned improv veteran Julie Dumais Osborne, Bad Dog Theatre presents Theatresports – Toronto’s longest running improv show – every Saturday plus shows throughout the week at The Bad Dog Comedy Theatre - 875 Bloor St. W.
