Cornwall Ontario — The sounds of laughter roared at Aultsville Theatre Saturday night. The Seaway Valley Comedy Fest was a sold-out affair.
It is estimated that the Cornwall Blazers raised over $5000 from the event. The final numbers have not been tallied.
Kenny Robinson, who headlined, is a comedian who has hosted The Gemini Awards and was twice nominated for his writing and performance in his ground breaking one hour special “Thick and Thin” on the CBC. He also hosted “After Hours with Kenny Robinson” on The Comedy Network. Kenny has also appeared in movies and TV shows with Ed Harris, Chris Rock, David Sutherland, and Billy Ray Cyrus. He also appeared on CBC’s The Royal Canadian Air Farce.
Sebastien Bourgault who is quickly becoming a top Canadian act in both French and English had a stellar set on Saturday. With more than 1500 performances, including Just for Laughs, Sebastien’s humorous background allows him to make a real connection with the audience.

Wafik Nasrella who’s special Comedy Now airs regularly on CBC also had a set, and local comedian Mark Vincent opened and hosted the event.
