Spirits Bar and Grill
642 Church Street
Toronto, ON M4Y 2G3
I love Spirits on a Wednesday night. I'll be there on August 1st, doing a set.
Wednesdays have been the night for comedy on Church Street since 1994 and Jo-Anna Downey has been the “Mama” since 1996, making Spirits Open Mic Night an institution (in a good way). Countless comics have felt right at home at Spirits and will occasionally drop by, like that time Robin Williams crashed Jo-Anna's 40th birthday. Other stars of Open-Mic night have included the "King of Queen's" Patten Oswald, Sean Cullen, Mitch Hedberg and Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies.
