HEADLINER TIM NUTT

Tim Nutt is a comic who can’t be judged by his cover. Long-haired, bearded and “rough around the edges”, audiences expect Nutt’s material to match. But he surprises with razored-down punch lines and well conjured-up premises that place him as one of the top comics working today.

His appearance at the 2006 Just For Laughs was so impressive he was named one of the “Best of the Fest” and reviewers asked “where have they been hiding this guy?” The answer was, in comedy clubs across Canada where Tim has established himself as a top-draw for the past 16 years.

Tim Nutt pushes comedy to explosive new levels and dimensions. He expertly explores the hilarity in everyday life. You’ll delight to his bizarre concepts and twisted viewpoints, all delivered with extra-planetary talent.
Tim is rough and tumble and manic and combines one-liners and crafty storytelling with a smooth familiarity..
A favorite on stages from coast to coast, this 24 year comedy Veteran has brought his unique style to Radio and Television and he is quite proud of his “Comedy Now” special for CTV and the Comedy Network.

Tim started doing stand-up comedy in Vancouver in May of 1993,  after Moving to Toronto, in 1995,   Tim worked full time as a professional Comedian.  He now makes his home in Kelowna BC.

OPENER MIKE MCGUIRE

Born and raised in Prince George and fresh from his first appearance of CBC’s The Debaters and second dvd taping ‘Name in Lights’ Mike McGuire is a person who takes a sideways look at current events, pop culture and his own Metis roots, traits and habits. If there are two ways to look at an issue he will find the silly in the ordinary. From racism to political correctness gone awry to his own issues, he will get you to laugh with him and at him, which is OK with him.
