The Whistler Comedy Showdown features comics from all walks of life. This stand-up comedy competition features a packed line up of newbies, familiar funny Sea to Sky faces and comics who already know how to get'em rolling down the aisles!
There will be tons of laughs and lots of big prizes to be won!
Come out and support these brave souls for just a $10 minimum donation for the preliminary rounds on Tuesday March 28th and Tuesday April 4th. All shows will be held at Buffalo Bills, Whistler BC.
Our charity of choice is Whistler's Concussion Support Group.
John has performed in the Just for Laughs Festival Gala where he won over the crowd and was touted as saving the show. John then went on to win the Corner Gas Comedy contest. Giving him $10 000, and an appearance on Corner Gas with his mentor Brent Butt. John has opened for the likes of Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis, and Craig Ferguson to name a few. John's style has been described as, wickedly funny, fearless and poignant. John's arsenal of sickly smart comedy is enough to leave any crowd begging for more. He is quickly becoming one of North America's favorite comedians.
