Friday was another night of great showcases across the city of Ottawa. Yuk Yuk’s and Absolute Comedy clubs featured the who’s who of stand-up while over at the Ottawa Little Theatre, we had two shows featuring stars of stand-up, improv and TV . So wonderful to be welcomed by the staff and mgmn’t of http://www.ottawalittletheatre.com . Big thanks to Evan Clark, Dir. of Mkt’g and Communications, for his advice and insights to the Ottawa entertainment landscape.
We’re pleased to welcome Mr. Hollywood himself, Matt Demers, and his TV crew who will be taping interviews with the comedy stars all Awards weekend. http://bit.ly/YGPfXt He lost no time in grabbing show host Cathy Jones for the first face-to-face (below)
Then Ron Sparks and Wes Borg invaded the “studio” and wreaked hilarious havoc on Mr. Hollywood’s set!
At 10:30pm, comedians for The Naughty Show took the stage and delivered some pretty fearless performances. Below, Mr. Hollywood created an interesting foursome with Rebecca Kohler, Julia Hladkowicz and Chris Locke …
…and Darren Frost really got into the spirit of showbiz by hijacking Mr. Hollywood’s champagne and downing it in one gulp!
Throughout the night, we had a real comedy “super fan” Chantelle hang with us in the Mr. Hollywood studio. Thanks for your laughter and support!
The Ottawa Little Theatre is quite the old-school theatrical venue and certainly worth a visit. Upon entering the upstairs lobby, the first thing that caught my eye was the stunning mid-century wall sculptures (below) and the lovely art which was part of a display by the local arts society (bottom 2 pics).
Tonight – Saturday night – is the Variety Gala at the OLT hosted by Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus and features some incredible talent including Scott Thompson, Peter ‘n’ Chris, Rebecca Kohler, David Pryde and Wes Borg. There are still a few tickets available so visit http://www.canadiancomedy.ca now to buy on line (or at the door).
