With comedians from L.A. to Florida with a few Canadian stops along the way this is the best showcase of who’s hot on comedy stages everywhere. Starring the winner of the Boston Comedy Festival Alingon Mitra and hosted by Vancouver’s Peter Kelamis this show stops at Edmonton (Kerry Unger and Tim Koslo) before heading to Toronto (Scott Harris), Florida (Maryellen Hooper) and L.A. (Rondell Sheridan). Some of the best comedians in North America all in one theatre on a single night. There’s only one catch: we’re not selling any tickets to it.
