Todd Glass

  • Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West)
  • 8 p.m., 10 p.m.

It’s been three years since Todd Glass made his Comedy Bar debut—and liked the then-fledgling comedy venue so much, he returned for another three-night stand later that summer. The veteran comic and creator of a critically acclaimed eponymous podcast is doing four stand-up sets over two nights for this return engagement, with special guest Rob Mailloux and a rotating lineup of local hosts and openers, including Mark Forward, Steph Tolev, and Helder Brum.

SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque

  • 9 p.m.

The world-famous SuicideGirls outfit has put together a travelling show called Blackheart Burlesque, which is currently touring Canada. The recent profile in AV Club of a longtime member makes it clear that these days, it’s quite competitive to become an official member, and this troupe’s already done Australia and western Canada, so by the time they arrive here in Toronto, they’ll definitely have their routines down pat.
