NOW Magazine - Hot Summer Guide - - CONTENTS - BY GLENN SUMI

Sav­ing Sil­ver­man

She joked about be­ing sex­u­ally abused (in The Aris­to­crats), fucked Matt Da­mon (in her vi­ral video any­way) and sep­a­rated from part­ner Jimmy Kim­mel (that part’s true). Who knows what else fear­less comic Sarah Sil­ver­man will get up to when she hosts two hotly an­tic­i­pated Just For Laughs shows on July 17? The fest it­self has added more dates, is ex­pand­ing across the city and in­cludes names like Louis CK, Scot­tish su­per­star Danny Bhoy, Shaun Majumder and John Cleese. July 15-19. ha­haha.com/ toronto.

Rus­sell re­turns

A cou­ple of years ago, Rus­sell Peters be­came the first stand-up to sell out the Air Canada Cen­tre. Now the for­mer Bramp­ton boy re- turns with a bunch of new jokes for his 20th An­niver­sary Tour, which takes him to are­nas across the coun­try, in­clud­ing two nights at the ACC June 12 and 13. tick­et­mas­ter.ca.

Hot! heats up

Al­ter­na­tive com­edy jokesters Chris Locke and Aaron Eves cel­e­brate four years of Let’s Get Hot!, their monthly show­case of ma­te­rial you won’t find at your lo­cal com­edy chain. Kath­leen

Phillips, Brian Bar­low, Levi MacDougall, Nathan Fielder and Katie Crown take part in the June 7 show at the Rivoli, the cli­max to a week­end of shows that in­clude two nights of live and filmed com­edy at the Fac­tory Theatre. laugh­sab­bath.com.

Jackie, oh!

Living leg­end Jackie Bur­roughs (A Win­ter Tan, Road To Avon­lea) has con­quered stage, screen and TV. But I doubt she’s done com­edy dur­ing Pride Week. Un­til now. The au­gust ac­tor is head­lin­ing a gala ver­sion of An­drew John­ston’s Bitch Salad se­ries, where she’ll be per­form­ing, ac­cord­ing to John­ston, “an ob­scene mono­logue in the style of Lucy Maud Mont­gomery.” Can’t wait to see Hetty go homo. June 19 at Bud­dies. bitch­salad.blogspot.com.

Rus­sell Peters yuks it up at the Air Canada Cen­tre June 12 and 13. Edgy Sarah Sil­ver­man plays host at Just For Laughs.
