Friday was my first night of checking out shows at SheDot, there were four great shows for me to choose from, but time constraints being what they are (and me lacking the ability to travel through time, I am working on it though) I could only see two. I ended up going to see SheNot TDot and SheLBT, both on the mainstage at Comedy Bar, both a great start to my time at the festival.
I was super jazzed to see the SheNot TDot show because I really wanted to check out my competition from outside of Toronto. Totally j/k, what I mean is that I wanted to see all the goddamn talented women from all over the country that I don’t get to see on the regular. SheNot TDot was hosted by Toronto’s very own Allison Dore, who got the show started off with, you guessed it, boob jokes. Allison was a gracious and funny host who, after really fucking up Erin Hawkes name (she called her Kristen, but hey, hosting ain’t easy), came out in different costumes from the Comedy Bar green room, picked specifically by Erin. Which is to say, Allison spent the second part of the show looking slightly crazier every time she came back on stage, and took it like a goddamn champ.
SheDot continues to May 4
