Every year Bad Dog produces and hosts over 700 shows for over 20,000 patrons, provides improv training to more than 1000 students a home for approximately 200 regular performers. That's a lot of people with a lot of love give! We're hoping 150 Bad Dog community members will donate before December 31, 2018.

Give BAD DOG Something Good

Your donation will help Bad Dog maintain consistent, stable funding. Every little bit helps. No matter the amount you choose to give your contribution helps us produce rigorous unscripted comedy that pushes the art form to greater heights, and is rewarding for both audiences and performers alike.


SUPPORT our artistic and academic programming, our administrative staff, Community and Inclusion initiatives and our bricks and mortar venue. We believe a strong community is essential for the growth of a healthy theatre space.

HELP us grow. Bad Dog is currently run by a staff of three full time and five very part time staff members. We want to grow our organizational capacity to see that our administrators, instructors, and performers are well supported.


Wait, is Bad Dog 15 or 35 years old? 

Great question! Before we were Bad Dog we were Theatresports Toronto. So technically we've been doing comedy in the city for over 35 years. Bad Dog was created by our co-founders Marcel St. Pierre, Kerry Griffin, and Ralph MacLeod in 2003.

What's in it for me?

  • Warm fuzzy feelings knowing you've done something real nice

  • A tax receipt for all donations made over $15

  • All $15+ donors recieve a special Bad Dog commemorative enamel pin (offer good until December 31, 2018)
