“…But do me a favour and pay attention to Craig Fay’s set. He hosted Myq Kaplan’s recent stint in Toronto a few weeks ago, and I was really taken aback. His appearance was clean cut, all dress shirt, tie, and cardiganned out. As the evening went on, I noticed that he was firing on all cylinders, casually crushing with crowd work and progressively subversive material (subversive for his dress code, anyways). It was one of those performances when you realize, ‘Oh, this guy is genuinely funny.’
