ED Video Presents: The Guelph Comedy Festival
Need a break from the Election? See local boy make the leap from his folkie roots to the standup stage!
Guelph - The Guelph Comedy Festival will relieve the community election dejection blues on April 29th and 30th with a brilliant line-up of stand up, sketch and improve comedians.
Sure you can see comedy anywhere, but Guelph's own James Gordon (Standup) warms Saturday night, leaping into the world of comedy from his folkie roots. Gordon is a natural story teller, world traveler, and unbeatable performer who will regale you with his unique understanding of life, in Guelph, in Canada, and on the road. Just a local boy, making good. this is Gordon’s first time taking on the world of standup - history in the making!
Following Gordon on Saturday night, Fraser Young (Standup) will be performing. Young is an award-winning comic who brings down the house! Fraser Young has a style all his own. From Toronto, he has headlined clubs as far away as Hong Kong, and is now based in New York City. Fraser has made several national television and radio appearances, including an episode of “Comedy NOW!”, his own comedy special, broadcast on CTV and The Comedy Network in Canada. He is one of the breakout stars of MuchMusic’s very popular “Video On Trial”. His first comedy CD “Everyone Loves A Smug Bastard”, got him invited to the Just For Laughs festival as the only Canadian in the New Faces showcase. Not your standard setup-punchline comedian, his act involves mixing unique observations into his eccentric, anecdotal comedy. www.youngfraser.com/
