About Catch 23

Catch23 is Toronto's deadliest improv pit fight. Really, it's quite civil. Other than the fact that the teams totally want to kill one another, Catch23 works hard to present you with some of the finest improv comedy this city (and world) has to offer. You will probably like it. Returning champions are invited back the following week to defend their title. Sometimes there are even theme shows! And special guests from afar! And surprises!

Tell Me More

“Catch23” is like championship fighting, but for comedy. Improv troupes and comedians from across Toronto battle it out for the winning title at this weekly comedy showcase at Comedy Bar. House players compete against visiting groups with their best set. Judges and the audience members pick the biggest gut-busting group. The best part? Champions are challenged to return to Comedy Bar the following week to defend their title. So add it to your calendar as a standing Friday night date!

“Catch23” even has themed nights; a recent one was called “Farts Around.” Really. And sometimes special guests and troupes from beyond Toronto make an appearance. The homebase of “Catch23” is at Comedy Bar, a hotspot for all things funny. The venue has a restaurant and bar, and its daily programming includes sketch comedy, improv, workshops, and more.
