In partnership with Yuk Yuk’s, join us for a laughter-filled evening at the King Heritage Cultural Centre on March 8th to celebrate International Women’s Day! Let’s “smash” the stereotype that “women aren’t funny” with two multi award-winning female comics: Martha Chavez and Laurie Elliott.
Details: Laskay Hall 7:30pm-8:30pm. Doors open 6:45pm.
Tickets $40 each. Buy your tickets here.
In the spirit of International Women’s Day, this show is paired with our current exhibit called “Stereotype Smash”: which is a dynamic display of over three dozen diverse pieces that take a stand against stereotypes. “Stereotype Smash” will be open from 6:30 pm to 7:30pm in the East Gallery for viewing (admission is included with your ticket).
Headliner MARTHA CHAVEZ is an award-winning comedian, writer, and actor who describes herself as the "most famous Nicaraguan-Canadian LGBTQ+ stand-up comedian in the world," but despite being an act of such a unique nature, she’s hilariously relatable, universally funny, and accessible.
She has appeared multiple times at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and tours coast-to-coast as a headliner for Yuk-Yuk’s. She can frequently be heard on CBC's The Debaters, Laugh Out Loud, and Because News.
MC LAURIE ELLIOTT is a stand-up comic, actor, and television writer. She is a winner of the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award and is a four-time winner of Best Female Stand Up at The Canadian Comedy Awards.
Her stand-up credits include: Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival (where she was chosen by the late, great Joan Rivers to perform on her final Gala show), the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Comedy Factory in Rotterdam, Raw Comedy Club in Stockholm, the SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto, and a gala run at the Cape Town International Comedy Festival in South Africa.
