The Fifteenth Hour

As we told you last week, local comedian Pat Thornton is performing twenty-four hours of stand-up comedy as part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Dare to Remember campaign. He is currently just past the fifteen-hour mark, is looking disheveled, but is still bravely firing jokes, and when Torontoist checked in at 7 a.m., he was on a Nelly Furtado/Fartado/Fartaco roll. Comedy gold! According to his fundraising profile, Thornton has raised 93% of his three-thousand-dollar goal. Him and his few core supporters will be at Comedy Bar until 6 p.m. tonight and on your internet machine until the same time. He will pretty much read anything you write on the live-stream site. Recipe for a good day.
