May 27 at 8:00pm: Christophe Davidson with Tim Nasiopoulos
After only a few years in comedy, Christophe landed a coveted spot at the 2007 Just For Laughs festival “Bubbling with Laughter” series, performing alongside the most talented comedians in the world. His one hour show “Christophe and His Superfriends” sold out its entire weekend in 2008. He’s also recorded a special for XM Radio, was a finalist in the JFL Montreal Homegrown Comic Competition, and performs regularly in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and New York. Also a filmmaker, Christophe’s short, “One Hot, Rotting Zombie Love Song” has garnered several awards, and the feature film based on the short is currently in development. Constantly pushing himself as an artist, mixing conventional observations, absurdity, and a concern for the world around him into something distinctly his own. He wants people to think while they’re laughing…but just in case they don’t, he also has jokes about poop.
Upon witnessing his first live comedy show at Yuk Yuk’s several years ago, Tim knew he had found his true calling. Tireless and determined in his efforts to perform in front of a live crowd, Tim capitalized on his opportunity during a Yuk Yuk’s amateur night on a Monday evening and hasn’t looked back since. Armed with a sardonic wit that is second to none, Tim unleashed his comedic talents across the Toronto area while performing at any bar, cafe, or comedy club within reach. After a brief hiatus to sow his wild oats while traveling to Western Canada, Tim has returned to his humble roots and captured the imagination of an entire city. His culturally provocative, ethnically profane, and spiritually revealing insights into the absurdities of the human condition- together with his surrealistic spin on life – is truly a sight to behold, and one that will leave you breathless and wanting more. Don’t miss the chance to see this wolf in sheep’s clothing, as he meticulously tears apart the pillars of traditionalism and the nuclear family, only to replace them with a pure and unadulterated perspective on male and female stupidity.
June 3 at 8:00pm: Daryl Makk with Cory Mack
Daryl Makk has led a fairly nomadic life. With a father who’s promotions at work often meant a new home he graced 8 schools in his 12 years of grade school. His continuous string of new homes proved to be great training for his entertainment travels later on in life. Being able to adapt to new surroundings has became second nature to him. He entered into comedy in 1993 after winning a contest in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada (where he was living at the time), since then he has gone on to to achieve success with his own Comedy Now one hour special on The Comedy Network and several other TV appearances. He has been on CBC radio. XM satellite radio often airs his first album Herding the sheeple. He has appeared twice at Montreal’s Just for Laughs festival and has done tours across Canada, in the UK, Costa Rica and Australia. During his tour in Australia he appeared at the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival. Daryl does many corporate shows, fundraisers and cruise ship appearances. He is also a writer currently working on a book based on his travels and has written articles that have been published in various newspapers and magazines.
