Ab­bott co­me­dy night still a go

Ti­ckets avai­lable for Sa­tur­day fun­drai­ser

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

A co­me­dy night to be­ne­fit John Ab­bott Col­lege's ath­le­tics pro­gram will still go ahead this wee­kend, say or­ga­ni­zers.

The event is an "im­por­tant fun­drai­ser" with all pro­ceeds sup­por­ting in­ter­col­le­giate spor­ting pro­grams.

The se­cond an­nual Islander Co­me­dy night will be held in the Cas­grain gym at John Ab­bott Col­lege on Sa­tur­day, No­vem­ber 20.

Mon­tréal co­me­dian Joey Elias will head­line at the show that will be em­ceed by Ali Has­san, Dan Bin­gham and Jeff Schoue­la.

AMon­tréal na­tive, Elias has been wor­king the lo­cal co­me­dy scene since 1992. His cre­dits in­clude twelve ap­pea­rances at the Just for Laughs Fes­ti­val, in­clu­ding th­ree ga­la per­for­mances and a cross-Ca­na­da tour. In ad­di­tion to tou­ring Ca­na­da and the U.S., Elias has tra­ve­led to Af­gha­nis­tan to en­ter­tain Ca­na­dian troops sta­tio­ned over­seas.

Ath­le­tic Di­rec­tor Steve Shaw said he hopes this year's line-up will best the show held last year.

Shaw said ri­sing costs sur­roun­ding the school's ath­le­tics pro­grams make fun­drai­sers even more im­por­tant.

Food will be avai­lable in the gym and par­king is free. For ti­ckets or in­for­ma­tion call 514 457-6610 ext. 5322. The show will be­gin at 7 p.m., doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
