Bruce McCulloch’s YOUNG DRUNK PUNK

Bruce McCulloch’s

YOUNG DRUNK PUNK

Saturday, October 25 @ 8 p.m.

$37.50 + HST + ticket service fee.

Tickets OnSale Monday May 5th @ 11am

Comedian, writer, director and legendary Kids In The Hall‘s Bruce McCulloch combines stand-up, live music and assorted autobiographical insights in “Young Drunk Punk”. Bruce’s new solo show chronicles his journey from wild early days as a ‘young punk’ in 80’s Alberta, to his flannel plaid days and futon nights in 90s Toronto, to becoming a ‘pajama-clad dad’ living in the Hollywood Hills. From scowling teenager to father of two, this evening of comedy, peppered with moments of surprising poignancy, proves that although this infamous Kid may be all grown up, his singular brand of humour and signature wit remain firmly intact.
Special Guest:  Brian Connelly from the group Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet.

Baloney and Wine

On sale Thurs. June 26 @ 11 a.m.
 
 
Derek Edwards - Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines.  It’s relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature … “the thinking man’s coffee break.”   In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason.  As he says, “28 years in, it’s AAALLLL starting to click!”
 Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show … a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority. It sizzles – it pops; it’sBaloney and Wine.
  “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”  – Rick Mercer

Gordon Lightfoot

The word ‘legend’ can be overused but not in the case of Gordon Lightfoot.

A national treasure, Gordon Lightfoot is beloved by music fans around the world.  He has won 15 Juno Awards and been nominated for 5 Grammy Awards.  He was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1986 and in May 2003 was made a Companion of the Order of Canada.
In 2004 he released his 20th album! In the music world, he may very well be the idol of icons.  Gordon Lightfoot is deeply respected by his peers, many of whom have recorded his songs – including Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Barbra Streisand and Johnny Cash. But rather than bask in the adulation he so clearly inspires, the musical legend continues to work harder than ever.  Currently marking five decades of touring and counting, Gordon Lightfoot invites his fans to be a part of his legacy on his 2014 Canadian Tour.  It is impossible to list all of his classics, here is but a sampling – “Early Mornin’ Rain”, “For Lovin’ Me”, “If You Could Read My Mind”, “Sundown” and of course “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”.

Holly Cole Christmas

Friday, December 12 @ 8 p.m.

$49.50 + HST + ticket service fee

On sale Wed. July 9 @ 11 a.m.

 
Expect very cool jazz style renderings of season favourites at Holly Cole’s Christmas concert.  There is an intelligence and sophistication to Holly Cole’s singing that sets her apart. She can imbue well-worn standards and eclectic songs with an uncanny combination of sensuality, innocence, originality and sheer musicality. Cole takes tunes everybody thinks they know and discovers new undercurrents in the venerable anthems of contemporary composers, wrapping her honesty, compassion and sardonic wit around their sometimes-fragile creations. The results are sexy, provocative, spellbinding, sometimes dangerous-and never, ever dull.
