Bad Dog: Book Club

Date: Sunday January 19th 2014
Time: 8:00pm - 9:30pm

We're bringing 'bookish' back!

Need the nudge to finally crack open that hot/essential/controversial/quintessential volume you?ve been meaning to read but just haven?t gotten around to? Join Book Club! And if you don?t quite get through each month?s selection, you never have to worry about being put on the spot. Just like a good book, our performers have you covered.

Book Club takes all of the best elements of classic readers? soirees - spirited discussion, strong opinion, the very real possibility of drinking a little too much wine - and combines them with the levity and liveliness of an unscripted comedy show featuring some of Toronto?s best comedians.

The premise is simple: through a combination of conversation and scenework, our improvisers will explore a different Canadian novel on the third Sunday of every month. You can help select what gets read and each show?s unofficial ?epilogue? will be post-show discussions at the bar!

OUR FIRST BOOK CLUB SELECTION: the titular story from Alice Munro's Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage.
