All the shows were held at the renowned landmark in Toronto on Wednesdays from June 28th to August 28th.
There’s a saying that you save the best for last, and it appears that’s what Just For Laughs did with Bodden as the headliner for their last show this summer. The well-seasoned comedian from Queens, New York had the Toronto audience in the palm of his hands.
Cynical and Good Natured Comedy
He needles the Toronto crowd with a joke about Kawhi Leonard – the NBA Finals MVP. Bodden points out that although Toronto basketball fans are upset now, during the middle of winter everyone of them will understand why Leonard decided to leave.
The Toronto crowd didn’t hold any grudges though. Bodden thoroughly entertains as he pokes fun at the cultural divide in the United States and keeps true to his cynical and good-natured comedy throughout the night.
New Project with Amazon Prime Video
Bodden appears in a new comedy special on Amazon Prime Video called Heavy Lightweight. He mixes jokes about deep or heavy topics such as racial tensions with lighter topics such as his new iPhone.
“If you do a lot of heavy sh*t people, people leave the show angry,” Bodden notes at his show in Toronto about the new special on Amazon.
“So I balance it with some lightweight sh*t.”
