They Call Him Mr. Tornado Jizz!

Brucesters!

People are often saying I’m a funny guy. I’ve even been told that by people I admire in the comedy world, seriously, to my surprise. I think it’s safe to say most people think they’re funny. I think I have my moments, but I honestly don’t know if I could ever brave up and do stand up. The idea of being up there on your own with people just waiting for you to make them laugh. To literally alter the mood of an entire room or even a stadium seems like the scariest business transaction ever signed. I was invited to a restaurant/club Thursday night for a comedy show and I had nothing overly pressing to do so I took John with me and decided with an open mind that I would be ready to laugh my balls off. Between ball jokes and pot jokes and the Jew telling Jew jokes, most of the night was awkward and uncomfortable at best. There were some high moments for sure but only a couple of comedians honestly made me laugh out loud for all to hear. I’m going to share the bios of those fellows with you over the month! I mean it is May Madness! Some of these boys were definitely mad! I just seriously think that people need to laugh more; at themselves, at each other, and certainly at our genitalia. How can we take ourselves that seriously with body parts that act like that?

Ladies and Fellows this is Che!

Che Durena was born and raised in British Columbia. He decided to make the trip to Toronto when he discovered his love for stand up comedy.

Since then he’s been hustling the GTA comedy scene to become one of the city’s best up and comers. I think his Instagram says it all! Tornado Jizz! If that doesn’t make you want to laugh, swallow, gag, sniff, inhale, or wipe I’m not sure you’re looking to laugh at all!

He came runner up in Sirius XM’s Next Top Comic, had headlining shows at JFL42, and has appeared on JFL All Access on Comedy Central.

His comedy touches on his ridiculous life living abroad and his perception of more serious matters like race, relationship, and drugs. Always finding an absurd angle to create a fresh and hilarious perspective.

Certainly his good looks and self confidence doesn’t hurt him either, but he’s got the goods and aside from that cocky demeanour he’s a realist and gracious to be sure.

It’s important to connect with people as a stand up comic. You’ve got only fleeting moments to hook, line, and sinker and that’s some hard core truth. As much as the audience is hoping to enjoy some shits and giggles, they’re secretly edging for a cliff walk.

Che balances that cliff like a tight rope walker and left us all hanging for more!

A note from the Editor:  I love comedy. David and I went to a few late night comedy shows when we went on our anniversary cruise and I was crying, laughing so hard!

About Bruce in the City

I have been writing my blog since 2010. I was inspired to do so after enjoying an amazing meal with some friends of mine here in Toronto. I decided to tell everyone about my great night and the fabulous restaurant I went to and shazam my blog was born!
