Cornwall Ontario — Going cold in the winter is no laughing matter. A couple of comedians hope to raise funds and keep people warm this winter with their comedy event.
Montreal comedian Sebastien Bourgault will be headlining November 6th at Deke and Squeaks. The show is 19+ and starts at 8pm. Admission is $20 and proceeds go to the “Dave Paupst Snowsuit fund” which is affiliated with CAS.
“The first show I ever hosted a few years back was for the Snowsuit fund, it’s a small local charity helping local families. I was very inexperienced back then so this show I feel I have something to prove”, explains event promoter Mark Vincent.
Bourgault is an expereinced French speaking comedian who recently started his English comedy career.
“My big dream is to star in Hollywood movies, and you kinda need to speak English for that”, explains Bourgault
With more than 1500 performances, including Just for Laughs, Sebastien’s humorous background allows him to make a real connection with the audience.
“I’m excited to work with Sebastien again. I’ve shared a stage with him many times, and it’s always an amazing show. He brings so much energy into the room, it’s so much fun to watch him work”, says Vincent.
Bourgault was also a columnist for Radio-Canada, in addition to shooting for TV commercials and being a spokesperson.
Let yourself be transported into the energetic world of Sébastien Bourgault and help out a fantastic cause!
The show also features Cornwall born comedian Courtney Evelynn.
Tickets are available at Floral Expressions and Melody Music.
