Trying to find the perfect place to celebrate Canada Day? Did you forget to call Canada and wish her a happy birthday last year? Look no further. This year, Canada is coming to you!
Canadian comedian Kevin Janus hosts a very special Canada Day Comedy Igloo Celebration with a lineup of the city's hottest comics, including:
* Tom Shillue (Late Night with Conan O’Brien; Comedy Central Presents);
* Joe DeVito (semifinalist, Last Comic Standing; The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson; Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham;); and
* Ophira Eisenberg (Comedy Central’s Premium Blend & VH1’s Best Week Ever; and she’s Canadian!!!).
Time Out New York has lauded the show as a "Critic's Pick" and "Don't Miss". The Comedians magazine has called the show "one of the best stand-up programs in town." And Billy Red Lyons from Maple Leaf Wrestling says: "Dontchya dare miss it!"
Why celebrate Canada Day anywhere else?
(As always, in an attempt to comply with the Canadian content rules of the Canadian government, there will be mandatory quotas of Labatt 50, poutine, and references to The Beachcombers, Seeing Things, and Danger Bay. Please govern yourself accordingly.)
