GUELPH COMEDY FESTIVAL PREVIEW GALA (SEPT 29)

30.00

Big show. Small venue.
This just might be the greatest collection of comedic talent to land in Guelph on a single night. Come celebrate comedy and community and get a taste of what’s to come at the 2017 Guelph Comedy Festival (Oct 18-21). This extra-special gala show features:

DeAnne Smith: Comedian. Writer. Trouble-maker. DeAnne is a Canadian Comedy Award winner who has performed all over the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Iceland Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs Montreal. In July 2017 a video of her stand-up called "Straight men, step up your game" went mega-viral garnering 28 million views on Facebook alone. The Montreal Gazette says DeAnne is “fresh, cutting…one of the finest wits in the country.” The UK’s Telegraph calls her “Smart. Very funny. Effortless charm lets her get away with murder.” She’s never actually murdered anyone.

Jess Salomon: A former UN war crimes lawyer turned stand up comic. Jess recently taped a gala set at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. You may also have heard her on CBC’s Q, Laugh Out Loud and The Debaters.

Soul Decision: This sketch comedy duo was recently named the “Best of the Fest” at both The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival and Montreal Sketch Fest. Both Kevin Vidal (nice guy) and Christian Smith (cool guy) are also alumni of Second City. You may recognize Kevin from Workin' Moms (CBC) and Sunnyside (CityTV). You may recognize Christian from Alias Grace (CBC/Netflix) and Reign (CBS).  

And your host, Spencer Dunn!
