As part of Canada's biggest comedy tour, Prince George residents can enjoy the humorous perspective of four comedians when they take to the Playhouse stage during the 12th annual Snowed In Comedy Tour on Jan. 11.
The line up for the Prince George show includes Los Angeles-based Debra DiGiovanni, tour founder Dan Quinn, Paul Myrehaug and Pete Zedlacher.
It started out as a way for Quinn to combine his two passions of snowboarding and comedy and hitting the slopes by day and entertaining winter-city audiences by night seemed the perfect way to do it.
"As you can imagine I don't snowboard - I know, it's shocking isn't it?" DiGiovanni quipped during a phone interview. "But this tour is always a lot of fun and we all get along really well. It's just a bunch of friends traveling around together."
This year, the comics will play 70 shows in 63 cities across Canada that will be sure to chase the winter blues far away.
"The material we have for this tour is always new," DiGiovanni said. "So if you've come to the show before, come to this one because you'll hear new material from each comedian."
Featured comedians for the local show includes DiGiovanni, who has been named Toronto's favourite comedian three times in five years. DiGiovanni's style of comedy offers a very personal perspective into everyday life that everyone can relate to. The popular comedian made an appearance on Conan O'Brien and stars in her own Crave TV and Netflix specials. She's well-known in Canada for appearances on Much Music's Video On Trial.
Myrehaug, who now lives in London, was born in Alberta and tours around the globe. He won the Great Canadian Laugh Off $25,000 prize and has been on Just For Laughs, Sirius XM and the Debaters.
Zedlacher is becoming one of the most recognized acts in Canada. He has been nominated five times for Comedian of the Year, done the Just For Laughs Gala eight times and won the Sirius-XM Radio Top Comic Competition. Along with his acting credits, he is now writing for the CBC Johnny Harris show Of All Places.
