Weedy Wednesdays 424 Bryan O'Gorman

POT TV - Weedy Wednesdays 422 at Vapor Central Canadian Pimp show 2 Noit with headliner Nick Beaton and several defected Cuban nationals from the Pan am games who we have trained to do standup comedy as cover. Dios Mio, mang, it's gonna be killer. Also news stories about Pluto, why public threesomes are important for democracy AND the world's stupidest laws! 667 Yonge street, downtown Toronto, 9pm doors, 12am lube fight — with Chris Goodwin, Nick Beaton and Erin Goodwin at Vapor Central.

Make no mistake about it, Vapor Central was the first lounge to openly allow smoking and vaping inside for the general public, the first to pay comics with money, the first one to allow advertising for the shows AND the first place that didn't look like someone's shitty garage had been decorated by a 14 year old. I'm also super proud to say I've paid every comic who's been booked on my show, even when the payout was 50 bucks, we shared it, still do. We didn't just pay the headliner and pocket the rest, we didn't lie about how much was being made, we didn't pay people based on whether they had a bad night or not, it's been the same percentage cuts from the beginning and THAT mon bitches, is what initially got this quality quontrolled quomedy train rollin. Fairness in art via other artists, whatta crazy concept! Now VC pays out more money every week to comedians than almost any of the Toronto comedy clubs. Boom. Good comics came and kept coming and that stage has seen some of the greatest comics in the world performing to the most sedated audience in history! Sweet life, kid. I love seeing my friends grow, I love seeing all the new vapor lounges and shows pop up and I love fucking the man through love and laughter. All I ever wanted a place to make people laugh and Chris Goodwin just wanted a place to make people high. Simple baby. Stir that up with some business ethics and now VC has grown to 6 shows a week with 8 different hosts, an internet channel and a 15,000 person rally every year it's responsible for. Sometimes I think about when it was just 5 people in the audience and I was standing on a milk crate, but that's hacky so then I think about tits. We worked hard, we fucked hard. Now I travel to clubs and theatres and bars in different cities all over the world but I always end up back at Vapor cause it's still the only place in the world run by a businessman I trust who always has a joint. Things get weird in ways you never think they would, but even if it all goes to shit timarra, I know what we've done actually changed something. We made things better. For comics and for the world. Eat a dick, guidance councilor. Here's to a zillion more shows!! Cheeeyyyaaaa!! See More
