What does it mean to be an up-and-coming, stand-up comedian who isn’t white? Stand Up Toronto explores the experience of three comics from diverse cultural backgrounds as they navigate Toronto’s comedy circuit. As these comics chronicle their attempts to break through in the industry, as well as break the mold of the comedians who came before them, will they find a place to speak their truth in the complicated world we live in?
