A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT ST. GABRIEL'S PARISH

George Bowser and Rick Blue write and perform music and comedy. Their Musical, ‘Last Night at the Gayety,’ ran for six weeks at Montreal’s Centaur Theatre in the spring of 2016.

They appear in theatres and concert halls across Canada, and from 2007 until 2016 they were featured in the Canadian Snowbird Extravaganza concert series, both in Canada and in the United States.

They have appeared frequently at the Just for Laughs comedy festival, most recently in the 2008 edition, and they can often be seen on CBC television and the Comedy Channel in shows compiled from those appearances. Their Christmas CTV special "Two Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire" was nominated for a Gemini award.

They also perform at special events, such as fund raisers, annual dinners and awards galas across the country.

They have written and performed in many theatre shows, notably "Schwartz's – the Musical"(2011), inspired by Bill Brownstein's best-selling book about the Montreal delicatessen. "The 25th Century Belongs to Canada"(2008), and "The 4 Anglos of the Apocalypse" (2006) - a comic perspective on the last 30 years of politics in Quebec - were collaborative works, written and performed with film-maker and humorist Josh Freed, and award-winning cartoonist Terry Mosher (Aislin). Previous shows include "The Paris of America," (2003), and the smash hits "Blokes," and "Blokes Deux."

In 2003 they collaborated with Terry Mosher to produce "The Illustrated Canadian Songbook", published with a companion CD.

Colorectal Surgeons around the world - and their patients - are familiar with them through the song "Working Where the Sun Don't Shine", which was first heard on "Madly Off In All Directions" in 1997.

They have recorded with Supertramp's Rick Davies, and with Katrina and the Waves. They also recorded a song with the late Blair and Gary MacLean, Canada's legendary "MacLean and MacLean."

They have recorded 13 CDs on their own "You Guys" label, and four for Montreal's Justin Time label.

Bowser and Blue provided the music for the NFB animated film "Scant Sanity," by John Weldon, and for the TV show "Misguided Angels." The instrumental guitar music for that show, "Red Guitars," can be heard in the auditorium between shows at B&B concerts.

The duo have been creating and performing music and comedy together since 1979, when they played their first show at Montreal's 'Irish Lancer' Pub. They have no plans to slow down or stop.

Sebastien Bourgault will have you peeing your pants. He has performed across Canada, New York and Los Angeles..

Being a comedian isn’t always easy, especially when you’re cracking jokes in a new language. It takes a lot of work, and includes a few crickets along the way. However, French Canadian comedian, Sebastien Bourgault, leaves English comedy clubs chuckling. He fills rooms with laughter from his fresh jokes and inspiring story.

Sebastien’s lifelong dream is to live and perform in Los Angeles. The biggest challenge that stood in his way: he was almost forty, and couldn’t speak English.

Step one: learn English—and learn it fast. “My goal was to learn English in 5 years, but I did it in 4.” Starting from an English vocabulary of about 50 words, and now performing on stage for crowded rooms of Anglophones is an accomplishment enough. But Bourgault hopes to go farther. “I want to go to Los Angeles,” Bourgault says. “This is my biggest dream.”


Glenn Frappier has always been a joke teller with an element of truth. After attending Second City in 2015, Glenn has performed at Absolute Comedy, Brantford Comedy Festival, Ryerson University and most recently Yuk Yuks. Glenn now lives in Toronto but born and bred in Verdun.
