20.00

Some of Canada’s best comedic talent and local favourites team up for a night of premiere stand-up comedy. This edition is brought to you in partnership with the University of Guelph Intercultural Affairs Office.

HEADLINER: HOODO HERSI
Hoodo Hersi was recently selected as a New Face at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where her performance aired on the Comedy Network. She has performed in clubs and festivals all over Canada and the United States, including the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and the BBC World Service Montreal Comedy Show. In 2018, she was selected as an Audible New Voice at SF Sketchfest, and performed with Hasan Minhaj, Lil Rel Howery, Chris Redd, Gina Yashere, Moshe Kasher, and Maria Bamford.

HEADLINER: JEN SAKATO
Jen Sakato is an up-and-coming comic from Toronto. She regularly performs at the Absolute Comedy, the Corner Comedy Club and has performed across Canada, at the San Diego Comedy Festival and JFL42. Her commentary on being mixed race, dating and modern life makes her an easy crowd favourite.

YOUR HOST: LEONARD CHAN
Leonard first started comedy in grade school as a form of self-defence. Over thirty years later, he did an actual open mic in Vancouver, and hasn’t stopped since. Leonard won the Absolute Comedy Prove You're a Comic contest in 2016 and the Comedy Brawl in 2018, beating over 400 comics.
