My tireless PR colleague, Jennifer, managed to capture some of the on-stage Beaver acceptance speeches with her phone camera while tweeting out all the action on Sunday night. Please excuse the less than perfect picture quality but I’m sure you’ll enjoy reliving that special moment when a nominee becomes a winner! Host Tom Green strode out to centre stage (below) to start the ball rolling….
…then on to the presentations. Kayla Lorette wins for Best Female Performance in a Web Series, then Ron James accepted this year’s Dave Broadfoot Comedy Genius Award
An emotional and surprised Garry Rideout Jr. (below) accepts the Roger Abbott Award (shared with Kyra Williams of Yuk Yuk’s)
Then….Adam Cawley was crowned Best Improvisor
Best Sketch Troupe, Peter ‘n’ Chris (below)
The Sufferettes took home the Beaver for Best Improv Troupe
Best Comedic Play was won by Peter n’ Chris Explore Their Bodies
A happy but tearful Kayla Lorette was a 3-time winner, taking home Best Female Improvisor

And DeAnne Smith was named Best Female Stand-Up

And the wonderfully witty Ken Hall was named Best Breakout Artist, much to the audience’s delight!
Our sincere apologies for those we missed – the pictures were just too blurred or bright to post. But again, congrats to all the nominees, thanks to all the presenters, our host, the team of volunteers, Tim P. and everyone who helped create this fabulous fun-filled evening celebrating Canadian comedy talent. http://www.canadiancomedy.ca
