Live Comedy

The Royal Theatre is the ultimate destination for live comedy. Our state-of-the-art facilities and dynamic atmosphere create an unforgettable experience for both performers and audiences. With a commitment to fostering community and collaboration, we’ve hosted some of the biggest names in comedy as well as rising stars. See below who’s performing next!

  • Josh Thomas, November 23rd

    Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce that comedian, author and actor Josh Thomas is coming to Toronto with his new show: Let’s Tidy Up. The award-winning Australian stand-up comedian will be at the Royal Theatre on November 23 at 7:00 PM.

    This is a show where Josh tidies up. Tidying up is not normally the stuff of gripping drama, it
    wouldn’t be a propulsive narrative for most people but for Josh it’s Everest, a fundamentally
    impossible task, like trying to defy the moon and control the tides.

    Josh’s brain has managed to make him the author and star of hit TV shows (Please Like Me,
    Everything’s Gonna Be Okay), in this show, written with award winning playwright, Lally Katz, he
    tries to work out how to do the small stuff.

    A second show has been added for 9:30pm! Tickets go on sale August 18th at 10am

  • Updating , November 17th

    The first-of-its-kind live reality show redefining what it means to be “raw.” The “Horniest Show in Town” starts with a simple premise: two singles are casted to go on blindfolded first dates but what follows is a unique brand of drama, satire, comedy, twists, turns, and unlimited fun. It’s the realest, most honest voice in entertainment right now.

    Hosted by comedian, Brandon Berman, the 90-minute show touches on different topics during every episode. Not a show where you sit back & watch from afar, producer & cohost Harrison Forman makes sure you join in on the action from the audience through interactive moments, and most importantly, an epic assortment of scandalous prizes! Oh, and the UpDating family is epic, a scene unlike any other tour out there with after parties where you may even get lucky 😉

    Born and raised in New York, Kevin Herrera is known for his comedic wit. Kevin has always been the “clown” with not only with his friends, but also within his large Hispanic family.

    Pat McGann

    Proving that comedy ain’t just a young man’s game, Chicago native Pat McGann only started honing his stand-up chops at the age of 31, becoming a sought-after Emcee at the Windy City’s Zanies comedy club. An opening slot for Sebastian Maniscalo soon followed, bringing McGann’s sharp and hilarious wit to a wider audience along with stints on Letterman, Colbert and more.

    With a relatable, often sardonic observational style that draws on the highs and laughter-filled lows of family life and marriage, this rising star is showing that you can follow your passions at any age!
