After leaving its Danforth location in 2011 to become performing (and training) nomads (most recently, with a long-term residency at Comedy Bar), improv company Bad Dog Theatre has finally settled in a new home near Bloor and Ossington. With Comedy Bar and the Storefront Theatre just a block away, Bad Dog’s arrival turns the strip into a destination for comedy of all kinds. To celebrate its new performance space and training centre, the Bad Dog Comedy Theatre Launch Week will feature tons of special guests nightly, including Vancouver’s Sunday Service, Atlanta’s Dad’s Garage, and, of course, the Bad Dog Repertory Company. Early 7 p.m. shows are free, followed by two nights with headliners, and every night ending in a late-night party or showcase event.
