Potential: A Canadian Comedy Showcase

Picture this: you're walking around the Fringe taking in all the sights, faces, and entertainment. When all of the sudden a pang hits your chest and you think "I have not engaged in any Canadian entertainment."

As horrifying a thought like that is, it doesn't have to be your Fringe Reality. Potential: A Canadian Comedy Showcase is your slice of Canadian comedy pie.

Potential has the motto of creating something different every night. The show will have a rotating door of Canadian talent to make every night unique from the last. Come the first day of Fringe and come the last to see something new.

The one constant the show has is Toronto stand-up Jack Hirschfield. Jack is known for his improvisation, riff-heavy sets, and overall just dumbass demeanor. Jack has been featured at the JustForLaughs NorthWest in Vancouver and was nominated for Breakout Artist of the Year at the I Heart Jokes award.

Come see Jack and his Canadian friends at Potential!

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.
