Comedy in the Hammer: Here’s What’s Happening

Hamilton Comedy


Comedy in the Hammer


Hello! Matthew here, I’m the Director of Event Management with Hub of The Hammer Event Planning. We put on events around the city and help people plan their own using strictly local vendors and venues. A big part of what we do is comedy shows throughout the city.


The Hamilton comedy scene is rich with talent. It’s like this secret world that has been existing for years that you probably have walked right by. Stand up comedy is one of those things where people will say they wish they watched it more but are never sure where to find it so I want to personally invite you to a world where people have the chutzpah needed to get on stage and say whatever, sometimes disgusting, thought in their head.


Each week I’m going to sit down with either a show-runner or local comedian to pick their brain and see what makes them tick.


Today, I’m sitting down with the show runner of The Comedy Gala, Isi Commisso. His show runs every Monday night at Gallaghers (171 John St N).


Hamilton Comedy Isi


How long has the show been going for?


1 month


How much is the ticket cost?


Absolutely free!


How often does the show happen?


Every Monday.


How long have you been doing stand up for?


My first set was five years ago, but I say three years because that’s when I really started to knuckle down and put in the work!


What makes the show different than others?


We’re changing things up by bringing burlesque, magic, and other sideshow acts to the city! It’s a vaudeville-style show with something a little different every week! You might even see someone “get the hook!”


What’s your favorite part of running the show?


Getting to meet and talk to all the different types of artist/performers the city has to offer!


Do you have any stories of something unexpected that’s happened at a show?


We’re still in the show’s infancy and starting out is always a challenge! We’ve yet to run into any problems! But booking sideshow acts will definitely make for some curve-balls I would haven’t have to deal with doing strictly stand-up!
