There will be no rural abductions or other unspeakable, taboo hillbilly acts at this week’s show (well, you actually never know!), but a duel will take place – and it may get nasty.
Not one but two headliners, will make this week’s show one for the ages, and may change views of many a traveler on how nice & sweet Canadians actually are! The prize? Squat in terms of cash or prizes, but both get to perform for Montreal’s most fun comedy audience. Onto the combatants”
Derek Seguin just wrapped up a stint as part of Just For Laughs’ Nasty Show. He tours all over Canada and destorys crowds wherever he goes. Strap yourself in! Or “on” – whichever. Derek in Winnipeg:
“And in the other corner“…
Hailing from Newfoundland, weighing in at god only knows how much, your other headliner – Matt Wright! Rather than us bla-bla-blahing about him, he’s captured all you need to know on his bio on his website. READ THAT! Maybe a clip of his comedy will get you in the mood.
These two guys are actually great friends, so it will be the friendliest, funniest competition in comedy history.
It’s all hosted by the gangly curator of The Comedy Hostel, fresh off his 3-show run in Ottawa, Jon Selig!
Also performing: Jess Salomon! Jakub Stachurski! Kevin Shustack! From Halifax, Ryan Fried!
Show’s at 8:45pm, Thursday night. Come in, sit down, and settle in for some drinks. Pitchers are just $12. That’s pretty sweet, right? Enjoy the show! Later on, a hat will come around, and we’d love a donation of $8-10, but pay-what-you-think or can.
1245 rue St. Andre (back entrance) is the address. If you’re driving, St. Catherine is closed off between Berri & Papineau, so don’t think of taking it! If you’re an STM kinda person, get off at Metro Berri UQAM.
