The newest Toronto Second City comedy show ‘Chaos Menu: Disorder Up!’ is your opportunity to take a break from doomscrolling and find the funny in a variety of politically incorrect skits and musical routines that mock workplace boundaries, female podcasts, AI scriptwriting, and texting anxiety.

And because so much of the comedy content is Toronto-focused, you can expect ‘The 6’ to be raked over the BBQ coals to roast how people dance in the GTA, extreme tipping culture, and how political leaders (mayoral mocking) talk smack.

Like all great improv shows, ‘Chaos Menu: Disorder Up!’ has many hilarious moments for the audience to get involved and shout-out words or ideas for the cast to riff off of. This show has several collaborative and spontaneous skits that involve the audience, a memorable one is about two ex-partners bumping into each other at a comedy gig and trying to one-up each other — the ad-libbing will have you cracking up!
