Toronto’s Marijuana Infused Comedy Scene

The center of Canada’s comedy universe is home to a series of weekly rooms where audience members can openly smoke marijuana while enjoying some of the best standup the city has to offer. Third Klass Thursdays along with Weedy Wednesdays and Stoner Sundays are three of the biggest weekly standup shows in Toronto, vapor lounge or not and all three happen at Vapor Central on Yonge Street. Despite hosting three of the biggest weekly shows in the city, Chris won’t take credit for creating the weed-infused comedy circuit. Joey aka Puff Mama is a former comedy club employee at the now defunct Comedy Wood in Toronto. She started producing her own shows once the club shut down. 

The Underground Comedy Club quickly became a popular stop for touring pros coming to Toronto. Local comedian Rob Mailloux has performed on and produced several shows at Underground. With consistently sold out rooms featuring touring pros and stacked lineups of local acts, the Vapor Lounge series of shows are some of the strongest and most successful in the city. It’s a community of shows that’s thriving in the heavily saturated Toronto comedy scene. Sold out rooms full of comedy fans openly smoking weed, carefree. 

There are a few rules that everyone must follow at the shows. Whether visiting Toronto as a comedian, comedy fan, marijuana enthusiast or curious cat, the Vapor Lounge series of shows are worth checking out.

Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum May Use Weed-Laced Smell-O-Vision

Singular filmmaker Harmony Korine has some high hopes for his latest feature, though fans of the indie auteur hoping to enjoy the full scope of his vision might have to travel a little further afield to enjoy it as it was meant to be seen. As of now, the film has yet to go into production, so perhaps Korine is already jawing about ideas that he’s built into the film’s script. We’re just going to have to wait and sniff it out later. When McConaughey first joined the project in February, it was expected to start shooting in July, though after Neon and Vice pre-bought the U.S. rights to the film at Cannes, reports held that cameras were not going to roll until this fall.

Southeast Denver Suburbs

After running the Comedy Works downtown – which some consider one of the finest comedy clubs in the nation – for nearly two decades, Wende Curtis opened the Landmark location in October 2008. While the downtown club brings in the younger, hipper and edgier comics, Comedy Works South generally brings in the slightly cleaner, nationally known acts. This 21,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, which also includes a restaurant and a martini bar, is an upgrade on the downtown location, and the comedy theater holds nearly twice as many people. The venue is also available for private functions, including business meetings, reunions and wedding parties.

Review: ‘Disjointed’ Is One Buzzkill of a Pot Comedy

Even in a more choom-friendly America, it’d be a tough sell at CBS.The result is a mess of a comedy that doesn’t feel as if it belongs anywhere. Ruth runs her shop, Ruth’s Alternative Caring, with her strait-laced M.B.A. son, Travis. For the intoxicant, this kind of wacky family-work hybrid could have aired 25 years ago. It’s also raunchy without much sophistication and distractingly self-conscious. The best subplot involves the security guard, Carter, an Iraq veteran grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder. Back in the present, she shakes her head at how worked up she and the crowd got over what was, in retrospect, lousy pot.
