July 2014 Comedy Schedule

ChucklesJuly is competition month in the comedy world here in Ottawa. The competitions, overall, are just friendly endeavors, with a little cash at the end for some of the finalists and winners.

My July calendar is pretty packed, especially as I am in all 3 of the comp’s around the city.

If you’ve been thinking about coming out to any of my sets – this is the month to do it!

Any and all support is appreciated!

Just a note – there is no longer Tuesday nights happening at Connor’s Pub on Bank Street. Starting on June 3, 2014, those shows will now be at Patty Boland’s in the Byward Market.

Chuckles for CHEO – 2014 Edition

Chuckles for CheoI am very excited to announce that I will be on the lineup for Chuckles for CHEO on June 2, 2014, a charity event raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Working as an addiction counselor in the Ottawa school system a lot of my clients utilize the services provided by CHEO, especially when it comes to their mental health needs. There are a good many clients of mine whose lives have literally been saved by the intervention of CHEO, so I am extremely honoured for this chance to give back in whatever way I can.

This event is being hosted by one of Ottawa’s funniest comedians: Josh Williams and is being organized by a very near and dear friend to me, Boom 99.7’s Dylan Black. Other comedians on stage include Kyle Brownrigg, Adrian Cronk, Mike Beatty and headliner Jim McNally. There will also be musical performances by Alex Ryder.

This event sells out every year – so call and make your reservations today! Tickets are only $10.00 and can be reserved by calling 613-233-8000.

I also believe there’s going to be a silent  auction and a 50:50 draw at the event as well.

Hope to see y’all there!

God, do I love it. It’s like a drug. Anyways, instead of pestering people all over Facebook and Twitter all the time posting every single date I’m going to be performing and where I figure once a month I will come here, make a quick post about where and when I will be performing and if you’re in the Ottawa area I would highly encourage you to come on out and have some fun!
