We are thrilled to be the first venue to offer a relaxed stand-up comedy series, designed to make comedy more welcoming to those with sensory and communication sensitivities, developmental delays, social barriers or anyone who feels a more laid back approach is their comfort.
Lighting and sound are adjusted in the space and there is no loud music in the transitions between acts. We provide additional signage and paper order forms at the box office and in the bar area to accommodate various forms of communication.
Performing comics have all been specifically selected based on style and persona.Their performances are non-abrasive, non-confrontational and their delivery is calm and pleasant. These events do not include crowd work.
Relaxed performance. Note: this is a basement venue and is not wheelchair accessible. There are 16 steps to the front entrance. Once inside all theatres and washrooms are on a single level. Patrons will receive a full visual guide in advance of the shows. To keep the space comfortable only 25 tickets are available for each event. Complimentary tickets for support persons. For any additional arrangements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. More accessibility information is available on the Comedy Bar website.
