Jokers Gone Wild 5
Thursday Oct 27th
Feat: Matt Gubster, Kenny V, Jordan Welwood and Mike Green
Doors at 8:00pm | Show at 8:30
Matt Gubser performs across the country and internationally, touching on topics ranging fatherhood, dating, sex, politics, & religion, intermingling personal anecdotes and biting social commentary, all couched in a comfortable, relaxed delivery.
Matt was named “Comedian’s Comedian” in the 2014 Bay Area Stand Up Comedy Awards. He is a contributor to Savage Henry magazine, is part of the Ha Ha Heathens comedy tour, and produces shows around the San Francisco Bay Area.
Ken was born in Edmonton in November 1956 to a normal family that had good values.
Ken got a degree in Education and has taught school for 35 years and has now retired.
So why did this normal kid dabble in the standup arts over 30 years ago to become a full time comedian and a full time teacher? Ken didn't mean to let his mother down by going to the dark side, but he likes comedy and he is good at it, he likes teaching and he is good at it also.
Ken has performed in Comedy clubs for 30 years and this has taken him all across Canada and even to the Middle East to entertain our troops. Ken is one of the favorite corporate comics of western Canada with a very adaptable routine that touches on many subjects.
Ken lives in rural Alberta so he can draw from his experiences to entertain rural communities from Bawlf to Tiger Lily (he's done it twice).
Ken also has a keynote presentation for teachers called "Observations of a Polyester Clad Chalk Dust Encrusted Educator" that has amused teachers from B.C to Manitoba.
Mike Green is thrilled that you are reading his bio, and hopes it wasn't the result of clicking the wrong link after google searching Mike Green the NHL player. Mike Green the comedian has told jokes for years on stages all across the country, and is in all likelihood even more satisfied with his life than Mike Green the NHL player. Mike Green is most proud of the work he's done touring the last few years with the Raise the Woof fundraisers shows which benefit animal shelters all across Canada.
This Mike Green has been building a reputation for the past 7 years by working with some of the top comedic acts in North America and freelance work with the CBC. He's always eager to get onstage at any type of show, from the weekly open mic he's run for the past 6 years, hosting at the inaugural ODDBLOCK Festival, and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, for which he's been picked 6 years consecutively. Also, he's as handsome as he is brave.
Jordan Welwood is a Winnipeg born comedian and writer. In 2016 he performed at Just for Laughs Montreal, and JFL 42 in Toronto. Soon you can catch him on Kevin Hart’s LOL, a brand new comedy based streaming service.
In 2015 Jordan returned to the finals of Sirius XM Canada’s Top Comic where he won 2nd Runner up. Since then he has performed in the ‘Best of Fest’ show at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and at the Oddblock Comedy Festival. He can be heard on Sirius XM and was featured on CBC’s Laugh Out Loud.
Jordan has opened for many big names including Gerry Dee, Mark Forward, Jen Kirkman and Pete Holmes.
He is a regular host and headliner at his home club ‘Rumor’s Comedy Club’. Jordan's observations and imagery about lifestyle and relationships are delivered with an engaging performance that is hilarious for everyone!
