Comedy in the Hammer: Jordan Scherer

Comedy in Hamilton Jordan Scherer


Hello!  Welcome back to Comedy in the Hammer! Every week we sit down with a local comedian and let you know what shows are happening in the city this week!


We spoke with Hamilton favourite Jordan Scherer. Jordan runs a weekly comedy night at Emerson 109 near McMaster. It’s a favourite spot among the comedians.


Jordan Scherer - Comedy in Hamilton


MS: How long has the show been going for?


JS: The show has been going for about three years. It was first started by comedy wizard Clifford Myers, who hosted for two years and built an awesome community. He handed it off to Mayce Galoni, and shortly after I was brought in to co-host. Mayce has been travelling a lot, so I’ve been running the show myself for about four months.


MS: Where is the show/when does it start/is there any cost?


JS: The show is at a bar called Emerson 109, which is super close to McMaster University. It’s every Tuesday at 9pm. There is no cover charge!


MS: How often does the show happen?


JS: It’s a weekly show.


MS: How long have you been doing stand up for?


JS: I’ve been doing stand-up for 6 years. I’ve got the same number of seasons as the TV show; Lost, and currently just as disappointing of an ending.


MS: What makes the show different than others?


JS: The show is different than other shows in the city because we have a co-host format, which makes it really fun and interactive. It’s important for us to keep it fresh because we have such a large group of regulars that come to the show every week.


MS: What’s your favourite part of running the show?


JS: I love having a platform to show people some of my favourite comedians. There are so many great comedians in the city of Hamilton who are doing very creative and unique stand-up. It makes me happy when other people get to see them and appreciate that.


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


JS: The craziest story is when a guy with a ponytail (for some reason feels relevant to the story), went nuts when Mayce asked him to keep it down during the show. It ended with the guy head-butting Mayce and calling me “fat boy” a lot. I won’t tell the whole story here because Mayce has a great bit about it, so if he’s around you should go watch him live!


MS: Are there any lineups coming up you’re excited about?


JS: This sounds cliché but we have so many different comedians rolling through, that every week brings its own excitement!
