Comedy fans have a lot to look forward to this year and here's what you can expect from Train Wreck Comedy this month.
Pro-Am Comedy Night - O'Flannigan's Pub
Wednesday January 9th and 16th
Pro-Am nights are where you will see the best of the Kelowna comedy scene in one place and watch them as they work their material from amateur status to professional!
Open Mic Comedy Night - Dakoda's Sports Bar
January 10th and 17th
These are the nights where local professionals come to sharpen their skills and amateurs come to see if they have any skills. Wanna try it, just show up and you can!
Lori Ferguson-Ford - Vancouver, BC
January 23rd and 24th
Lori has been a professional stand-up comic for over 20 years. She began her love for comedy in 1988. A bit of a fairytale beginning; while working as a waitress, one of her regulars offered to sponsor her dream of stand- up comedy as a career. Soon after, Lori was voted B.C.’s Funniest New Comic and four years later B.C.’s Funniest Woman.
Lori has toured all over Canada and the United States, she has graced the stages of Yuk Yuk’s, The Improv, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store just to mention a few. Lori has also made television appearances on CTV, CBC, WTN and The Comedy Network, as well as CBC radio’s Madly Off In All Directions. Most recently you may have seen Lori on the CTV Comedy Now! special called Women of the Night.
Brett Martin - Vancouver, BC
January 30th and 31st
With a reckless style that is blazing its own path, Brett Martin’s Comedy is a refreshing take on Stand up. Martin’s Comedy is straight from the heart and mind of a man who fits seamlessly on the outer limits of life. With an almost confessional style and jokes that can come dangerously close to the edge, Brett Martin’s Comedy leaves you laughing and thinking at the same time.
His resume includes regular play on XM Satellite Radio XM’s ‘Laff Attack’ and ‘The Comedy Store’ in London, England, Martin has also featured in countless Comedy Clubs, Colleges and Festivals. Having taken almost two years off of touring to experiment with such things as real employment and home making, he’s thrilled to return to Comedy and share his new, unique and happier perspective with audiences.Blessed with a spirit akin to Hunter S. Thompson, the sex appeal of Neil Young and a mind gone wild, Brett Martin’s name will be a fixture on the Stand up Comedy scene for now and the future.
Train Wreck Comedy All-Stars - Lake City Casino Kelowna
Friday January 25th
Don't miss the first ever Train Wreck All-Stars show this month at Lake City Casino, featuring an all professional show with Lori Ferguson-Ford and headliner Daryl Makk.
