Last night we produced the taping of one of Toronto's top comedians and rising stars North Amercia-wide, D.J. Demers. Earlier this month D.J. appeared on America's Got Talent and moved onto the second round with unanimous support from the judges.
We're thrilled to finally launch Season 2 of Comedy in the X where we bring some of Canada's top comics to unusual venues. Last year we held shows in the basement of a house party and this year we held four shows: in a dive bar on Bloor, an antique shop, an art gallery, and at a Halloween party.
Today we're pleased to announce our partnership with Homestand Sports, an entertainment company in Toronto producing live talks, Pitch Talks, Puck Talks, and Hoop Talks featuring the sports worlds media elite, including (in hockey): Bob McKenzie, Chris Johnston, Jeff Marek, Elliot Friedman, and James Mirtle, and (in baseball): Mark Shapiro, Alex Anthopoulos, Stephen Brunt, Ken Rosenthal, Mike Hazen.
One of our favourite Toronto artists, Peter Chapman (aka Coins), recently released Daft Science, a mashup of Daft Punk & Beastie Boys. Such a musical masterpiece. Peter is the composer of all original music on our podcast Should I Be Scared of This? and the upcoming release of DJ Demers' special - Indistinct Chatter.
