Tickets $25 online, $30 at the door Reese Turner is a familiar face on the Montreal comedy circuit. His comedy is laid back and anecdotal, dealing with life as a husband and father, his British family and pop culture. Reese has been featured on The Healthy Living in Comedy Tour, and in 2017 he appeared at MTL’s Pouzzafest, Toronto’s Field Trip Festival, and JFL42. He moved to Toronto during the pandemic and is making his name known all across the province performing comedy in-person and producing shows online. Cathy Boyd is a Toronto-based, brutally honest stand-up comedian, mediocre tennis player and mother of four who readily admits, three would have been good. She’d have been good with three. She hit the comedy scene a little late in life but quickly made up for it by becoming a rostered comic at Absolute Comedy and crowned Comedian of the North in 2019. Host Bryan Hatt has been making crowds laugh for two decades now and there are zero signs of stopping. Besides recording his own comedy special (Comedy Now), Bryan has also appeared on the Winnipeg & Halifax Comedy festivals, the Great Canadian Laugh Off, performed multiple times at JFL42, can be heard regularly on CBC and XM radio and continues to headline comedy clubs from coast to coast. Bryan’s quick wit and relatable material have garnered high praise and allowed him to open for such comedy legends such as Harland Williams, Danny Bhoy, Gilbert Gottfried and more! Bryan is fearless, fast, and most importantly FUNNY. Whether he’s showing off his world-class emcee skills or closing the show, you can be sure that Bryan Hatt will leave you wanting more! His debut album “Born This Weight” is available on all major streaming platforms.  Headliner Mike Rita: Mike Rita has cemented himself as one of Canada’s best stand-ups. Multiple appearances at Just For Laughs, TV Shows, Comedy Festivals and Sold Out Tours, you name it, he’s done it. Recently nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for his work on Roast Battles Canada Mike can be seen on stages and screens across Canada.
