Third Annual Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Event

Come for Laughs on Saturday, January 26th


Tickets available at the Academy Theater and at their box office.

The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is excited to present our third annual Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Event.  The year’s show welcomes MC/opener Shannon Laverty and headliner Pete Johansson.

Since entering the Yuk Yuk’s Search for Canada’s Funniest New Comic years ago, Laverty has been nominated 4 times for a Canadian Comedy Award.

Shannon’s recent TV and radio credits include: Laugh Out Loud (CBC Radio), Listed (MuchMoreMusic), Club 54, “Fruitopia Comedy Funfest” at Paramount Canada’s Wonderland (broadcast on CKVR-TV), She’s So Funny and Funny Girls on the Woman’s Television Network, Comics (On CBC-appeared in 2 B roles) and Yuk Yuk’s – The Radio Show on the Telemedia Network.

Laverty’s on stage persona is proud to be provocative. Her come-hither attitude will draw you in and her flirtatious delivery has been embraced by all sexes.

Pete Johansson has earned the title of global headlining comic with a relentless non-stop schedule taking him to every corner of the globe. His unique socially progressive, intellectually challenging, yet accessible and silly comedy has garnered a devoted following of fans looking for laughs with something more.

Pete started performing in his teens, and developed his art from coast to coast in Canada making his first appearance at The Just For Laughs festival when he was only 24 and following that up with 6 more appearances at the festival over his 20 year career, including 4 galas taped for the CBC. Numerous other TV appearances fill his resume, from The Late Late Show on CBS to the Premium Blend on Comedy Central.  A relentless writer, and social critic you can always expect an engaging and intriguing show from this once in a lifetime comedian.

Tickets are $35 (tax included) and all proceeds go to the Kawartha Lakes Food Source. This is an age of majority event.

Tickets available at the Academy Theater and at their box office.
