Event Details

EXTRA! EXTRA! We've gathered the most solid line-up in the event's history - four great comedians will join us this year.

Our very special guest of the evening is legendary comedian Mike MacDonald.  While he continues to battle his own health issues, we're thrilled and very lucky to have Mike on stage in front of his home town fans.  In addition to his live performances all over North America, Mike appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman.  He has also starred in three critically acclaimed specials for CBC and for Showtime in the U.S. His first special, "Mike MacDonald: On Target" and "My House! My Rules!" which was nominated for two Gemini Awards for Best Writing and Best Performance in a comedy special.  Mike will be introducing the following performers:

 

Judy Croon is a comedienne, MC, motivational humourist, radio broadcaster, author and proud of never being in jail. She has been the opening act for Joan Rivers, Wynonna Judd, Rovert Klein, Weird Al, Dionne Warwick and Anne Murray. Judy is the creator and host of "Laughlines" and "Stand Up for The Girls" which have raised over $650,000 for breast cancer research, and is a co-author of the book "From the Stage to the Page: Life Lessons from Four Funny Ladies!" A few clips of Judy can be found at http://www.judycroon.com.

 

Also appearing is comedian Dylan Mandlsohn, an energetic guy who recently made history by becoming the only Canadian to be a back-to-back finalist in both the San Francisco and Seattle Comedy Competitions. In between these events, Dylan shot an hour long "Comedy Now!" special for the Comedy Network and CTV. His energetic approach to comedy leaves audiences gasping in amazement at his fantastic facial contortions and incredible intentions for healing the human spirit. This is a comedian not to miss.

Finally, we're absolutely over the moon to have Graham Chittenden as our headliner. Graham is becoming one of Canada's most sought-after performers, appeared on multiple episodes of the Comedy Network's relaunch of Match Game, and made several appearances on CBC's The Debaters, all while maintaining a busy schedule of live stand up performances. Previously, Graham has opened for Gerry Dee, Brent Butt & Dave Coulier, just to name a few. In the New Year Graham will be embarking on a cross-country theatre tour of his own.
