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