It has been more than a decade since the snow started to fall on the Canadian comedy landscape.
The Snowed In Comedy Tour has been shoveling across the nation since 2009 and once again this mini-festival of big laughs has local dates.
On Saturday, the gang of comics performs a pair of shows in Prince George, followed by a show in Quesnel on Sunday.
This year's lineup includes Dan Quinn, Paul Myrehaug, Pete Zedlacher and Debra DiGiovanni for all the performances in these parts. They will do a set at 7 p.m. then another at 10 p.m. at the Prince George Playhouse. The first is listed as sold out, so getting tickets will have to be done by personal networking. A scant number of tickets were reportedly available for the 10 p.m. show, as of Thursday afternoon.
The Quesnel gig still has tickets available for the 8 p.m. event at The Occidental.
All four of these comedians has a personal list of career power-points, and together they form what has become the most successful annual comedy tour in Canada. The lineup alters a little depending on dates and locations, because the junket goes to 65 Canadian destinations and in the recent past has also ventured to other countries to spread the joy and the jokes.
