Su­gar Sam­my head­li­ning Is­lan­der Co­me­dy Night

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

An an­nual co­me­dy night sup­por­ting sports pro­grams that is held each year at John Ab­bott Col­lege pro­mises to be even fun­nier since the En­glish CE­GEP sco­red a vi­sit from current Mon­treal co­me­dy king Su­gar Sam­my. The 5th an­nual Is­lan­der Co­me­dy Night will be held at 8 p.m. on Sa­tur­day, De­cem­ber 8, in the Cas­grain gym at the Sainte-Anne-de-Bel­le­vue col­lege. The an­nual night of laughs is a key fun­drai­ser for John Ab­bott’s in­ter­col­le­giate ath­le­tics pro­grams, said ath­le­tic Di­rec­tor Steve Shaw.

“Ex­penses for our teams conti­nue to rise fas­ter than our re­ve­nues. All of our 16 teams are in­vol­ved in this event, and we are coun­ting on each of our 400 ath­letes and 65 coaches to sell ti­ckets,” he no­ted.

Ti­ckets went on sale this week.

Head­li­ner Su­gar Sam­my will per­form a one-hour bi­lin­gual show. The man known for his equal op­por­tu­ni­ty rib­bing of Mon­treal’s cultu­ral and lin­guis­tic dis­tinc­tion has been hai­led the num­ber one co­me­dian in Que­bec. Su­gar Sam­my does more than 150 per­for­mances - in En­glish, French, Hin­di and Pun­ja­bi - a year in 30 coun­tries. The Hol­ly­wood Re­por­ter na­med him one of top 10 ta­lents to watch in the world of co­me­dy, while Bill Brown­stein of the Mon­treal Ga­zette said Su­gar Sam­my’s ‘Fran­glais’ show is a ‘Mon­treal so­cio­lo­gi­cal ex­pe­rience.... Politics, culture, sports: no­thing is sa­cred for Sam­my. He is an equal-op­por­tu­ni­ty in­sul­ter, ta­king play­ful stabs at An­glos, Fran­cos and just about eve­ry other eth­ni­ci­ty.’

A can­teen in­clu­ding piz­za from Do­mi­no’s and a cash bar will be avai­lable in the gym. Par­king is free. Re­ser­ved ti­ckets start at $50.
