Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Stephanie Anna Ruf Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion, Stanstead

22 years to­gether and 2 won­der­ful kids, Erin Garand, top sales­woman at Ford Ma­gog and Ja­son Hart­ley, who works in the stone in­dus­try and is a vol­un­teer fire­fighter for the town of Stanstead, seemed to not feel their lives were busy enough. They, like most of us, had a dream. Erin dreamt of hav­ing a ca­ter­ing party plan­ning busi­ness, Ja­son on the other hand dreamt of a place where you could sit and lis­ten to acous­tic mu­sic and more. How­ever, un­like oth­ers, they com­bined their dreams and ac­tu­ally made it re­al­ity by opened Cabaret Sans Fron­tieres. This Cafe Bar Lounge is home to Stand up co­me­di­ans from The Com­edy ev­ery Fri­day nights and on Satur­days its mu­sic trib­utes. Not only is it unique for the area, its a great idea. With its freshly dec­o­rated mod­ern­ro­man­tic look, no won­der the com­ments are only pos­i­tive. One sat­is­fied cus­tomer called the Cabaret Sans Fron­tieres an "in­ti­mate place for shows which is very fun and the lounge am­biance is very cool, plus the staff is amaz­ing!!!" Since the doors opened at the be­gin­ing of Novem­ber there have been many artist who have hit the stage. This past Fri­day, CSF Lounge wel­comed Stand Up comic Paul Baluyot and friends. The show started at 9 p.m. and by 9:02, the MC Ja­son Yearow had ev­ery­one laugh­ing. With his gen­uine smile and funny jokes, he warmed the crowd be­fore wel­com­ing fel­low co­me­dian, the Ital­ian funny man Tony Ric­cio. When you ask Toni why he does Stand Up com­edy the an­swer is sim­ple: to see the crowd smile, to hear them laugh. Well Tony you can be proud, we sure did laugh! Af­ter the ital­ian Stal­ion came the Ital­ian Lady, Tina Ju­tras. For the past year now, Tina has fallen in love with Stand up Com­edy and has made it her own. Not only does she seem like a nat­u­ral, even if it has only been a year, she also ra­di­ates con­fi­dence and knows how to work a crowd. You would think af­ter see­ing three great co­me­di­ans it would be it...but no, they had more to of­fer! Now came Scott Carter, a down to earth, 4 year Van­cou­ver Co­me­dian, who's calme, shy look­ing but has an as­sertive de­liv­ery had us laugh­ing from the start. For Scott making it in Com­edy sim­ply means not hav­ing to work an­other job, be­ing able to con­cen­trate on his Stand up Com­edy. If Scott keeps up his great work, there is no rea­son for this not to hap­pen, as long as you keep your Tay­Tay joke that was price­less! With our cheeks hurt­ing from smil­ing and laugh­ing, MC Ja­son wel­comed the fi­nal act up on stage. I have to say, I caught my­self say­ing all ready?! but we are hav­ing so much fun! Sur­prise to me... the fun was just about to get kicked up a notch. Ja­son walked onto stage, in­tro­duced him
