The Man In The Hat!
Donnie Coy, The Godfather of Comedy in Hamilton ON passed away on September 30, 2023, peacefully surrounded by his family.
I did my first Hamilton gig at his club "CRACKERS" in 1984ish, with comedian Alan Watt Then we had to race back to the bus station to get the last bus back to Toronto.
Soon after Donnie and Lydia Coy opened their first Yuk Yuk's in Hamilton ON, I may have done the amateur night once or twice at the beginning.
"There was Donnie Coy, who owned Hamilton, and could wear the hell out of a hat." Norm MacDonald October 27, 2017
Thank you Bill Davern for the video!

I first met Paul Adams through his father, comedy writer Charlie Adams. Charlie was the first UK comic on The Comedy Green Room. Charlie suggested I check out his son, stand-up comic Paul Adams.
We hit it off and Paul was invited to perform at The HogTown Comedy Festival (TM) in Toronto ON Canada. Paul decided to move to Toronto and performed in comedy clubs and bars throughout Canada and the USA for about 2 years. Paul's clean and funny comedy style was a refreshing change to the Toronto Comedy Community from 2004 to 2006.
Mr. Paul Adams new book Diary of a Locked Down Comedian is a funny, charming, and insightful look into his pandemic experience. Check it out!
