Canadian Comedy Superstar Booked for CentreFest Fundraiser!
Monday, January 11th 2010
CentreFest organizers have booked Canadian comedy superstar Roman Danylo for a fundraising event on March 18, 2011. Danylo is the star of Comedy Inc. on CTV and the Comedy Network, and has been seen on Just For Laughs, The HBO Comedy Festival, The Improv Comedy Games and The Improv Comedy Olympics. Danylo is a native Albertan, hailing from Calgary, where he honed his comedic talents in the world-renowned Loose Moose Theatre Company. Danylo will be partnering with Red Deer’s own Neil Grahn, star of CBC Radio’s Irrelevant Show for the evening.
This variety comedy show consists of sketch, stand-up and improv comedy. The show is light-hearted and edgy and takes on subjects from love, to war, to snacks at the mall. The show is a blend of different genres of comedy. You will see high-energy, observational stand-up, interactive comedy sketches and Roman Danylo will pepper in some of his popular characters from TV. Roman breaks all the rules of a traditional stand-up show, by often bringing audience members onto the stage or crawling through the crowd to bring the experience directly to the audience.
This event will be held at The Scott Block Theatre, doors open at 7pm, the show starts at 8pm. Only 120 tickets are available for this cabaret-style adult only show. Tickets are $30 and will be sold through the Black Knight Inn Ticket Centre, …comforts the sole and Sunworks.
For years CentreFest has brought smiles and laughter to audiences; Roman Danylo promises to do the same. “This fundraiser will give us a financial boost that will aid in hosting CentreFest for another year” say CentreFest organizers.
