Live Stand-up Comedy @ St. Lawrence College, October 17th

2009-10-01

The St. Lawrence College Brockville Alumni Branch is proud to host their third annual Great North Comedy Night at the Brockville campus on Saturday October 17th.

The headliner is Tim Nutt (www.TimNutt.ca), a long-haired, bearded comic who appears "rough around the edges", but surprises with razored-down punch lines and well conjured-up premises that place him as one of the top comics working today. His appearance at the 2006 "Just for Laughs" Festival was so impressive he was named one of the "Best of the Fest" and his return in 2007 won him a Canadian Comedy Award for "Best Live TV performance". Appearing with Tim is Jim McAleese and Carrie Gaetz.

Over the past 6 years 19 talented stand-up comics have performed on our campus. They are usually the headline act at comedy clubs across the country and make appearances at annual comedy festivals such as Montreal’s Just for Laughs, the Halifax Comedy Festival, and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival (as seen on CBC). Here’s your chance to see these unique performers in a big city comedy club setting right in your own community!

Partial proceeds from this event will support the campus Student Emergency Fund. Despite the growing number of bursaries now available, many students still struggle to meet daily life necessities. This fund specifically provides immediate relief for our students in need and allows them to focus their energy on completing their education.

Last year a student had to leave home and move in to an apartment due to circumstances beyond his/her control. Having to pay first & last month’s rent placed financial strain on the student’s educational budget so the Emergency Fund eased the pain by covering for an expensive collection of text books. For ongoing support of cases like these the volunteer Alumni Branch hopes you’ll join us on October 17th. The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.

Tickets will be $15.00 at the door that night but you can get them now for only $12.00 at Trendsetters clothing at 13 Perth St. or Home Hardware on Stewart Blvd. More details are available at www.stlawrencecollege.ca/alumnib or call 345-0660, x3777.
