Urban Planner: November 8, 2012

In today's Urban Planner: a comedy show brings the laughs, a new theatre piece brings the spirit of Remembrance Day, and a one-man performance brings in the month of the moustache.

The Complete History of the Moustache opens tonight. Photo courtesy of Kristian Reimer.

COMEDY: After an intense lead-up to the U.S. election, you could probably use a laugh. Check out DRINK, SING, BE MERRY!, an energetic mix of comedic styles. Featuring Jenna Warriner, the event will include impersonations, clowns, stand-up comedy, and a whole host of performers. Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West), 8 p.m., $10.

THEATRE: Wearable poppies are blooming on coats all over Toronto, which means the time for remembrance is upon us again. Here’s a play that might help with that. Until Our Paths Cross Again is a new piece from Rarely Pure Theatre. It explores the sacrifice a soldier must make for Canadian peace. The play was inspired by Captain Nichola Goddard, the first female Canadian combat soldier killed in action. Distillery District (9 Trinity Street, Studios 313 and 314), tonight to November 11, 8 p.m., PWYC.

MOUSTACHE COMEDY: Comedian and monologist Kristian Reimer is getting into the Movember spirit with a new solo show called The Complete History of the Moustache. He promises to make moustache lovers of the audience by the end of each performance and, if not, he’ll shave on stage on the show’s closing night. Free Times Cafe (320 College Street), 8:30 p.m., $10.
