Comedy in the Hammer: Terris Taylor

Comedy in Hamilton Terris Taylor


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!


This week we spoke with Hamilton favourite, Terris Taylor.


Terris Taylor Comedy in Hamilton


MS: Where is the show/when does it start


TT: The next show is June 23rd at the Little Grasshopper cafe at 37 Barton St East, Right Near James St North, doors at 9, and the show starts at 10 pm sharp.


MS: How often does the show happen?


TT: Roughly every 1.5 months


MS: What makes the show different than others?


TT: Well it used to be that it was a house show, but now it’s a touring show that we’re trying to bring the vibe of a house show too. We’re one of the only if not the only shows in Hamilton that features stand up, sketch and improv comedy.


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


TT: Getting to know the other performers, it’s so much easier to mingle and get to know comedians you like if you can offer them a show when you’re telling them how much you like what they’re doing.


MS: You previously ran a show out of your house, why the switch of location?


TT: We started to outgrow the venue, you can only fit so many people in a house, and you can only get so many noise complaints before you decide to take the show on the road.


MS: Are there any changes coming with the new location?


TT: We’re hoping to host the show at a variety of different venues, and we plan to customize the show to fit each venue. Expect a fun and different show each time you attend. Who knows maybe one day you’ll attend a show not on land. Space comedy? Maybe…


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


TT: This next show is a doozy of a line up, Nick, Tim and Ashley are all so very different, and all incredible. And the lineup on the Little Grasshopper menu is also amazing. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, best bifana in town.


MS: How much does it cost to attend the show?


TT: The show is $10/PWYC, income should never be a barrier to laughing. And if you’re a super rich member of the 1% I fully expect you to pay more than $10
