The Pride edition of Bitch Salad, the all-female comedy show at Buddies at Bad Times, is growing in size and hilarity. This one was a celebratory edition, with partial proceeds going to the AIDS Committee of Toronto and Buddies. Even Kristen Johnston sent in a video response for winning a trophy. Beside her, usual mainstays Dini Dimako, Dana Alexander, Sara Hennessey and Nikki Payne were hilarious as usual.
The vignettes with male guests (including Degrassi-famed Adamo Ruggiero) fell completely flat. The show’s lineup is usually male-free, which is the main differential and draw of the show, at least for me. Bitch Salad should only contain bitches.
But the highlight of the evening was theCheeto Girls (an unfortunate name for a talented troupe). Their performance was fresh, smart, entertaining and hilarious.
