It’s a great time
CHICKA BOOM is an all-female comedy and variety cabaret, featuring the best female performers Toronto has to offer. From stand-ups and sketch groups to songstresses, dancers, improvisers, poets, actors, and more, CHICKA BOOM has a little bit of everything and a whole lot of laughs. Hosted and produced by the hilarious duo of Jess Beaulieu and Laura Bailey, CHICKA BOOM goes down easy with the delicious latkes and refreshing booze of the Free Times Cafe. Funny jokes, casual atmosphere, amazing food, and ladies who will knock your socks off—what more could you ask for?
It’s for charity
CHICKA BOOM is not only funny, it’s feminist fun that you can feel good about. All profits from the door are donated to the 416 Community Drop-in Centre for Women, a non-profit organization assisting women in crisis. Admission is Donate What You Can.
It showcases women: pros and amateurs
In 2014, CHICKA BOOM will run four Saturdays of programmed shows at the Free Times Cafe: March 8 (International Women’s Day), May 24, August 23, November 22. This is the CHICKA BOOM you’ve come to know and love. We are making more room in our schedule for awesome all-female open mics. Check back for more of those dates!
