Derek Edwards — Alls I’m Saying
Fraser Auditorium Laurentian University
Alls I’m Saying is brazenly tentative! Like a sniper with the hiccups, Derek Edwards takes aim at life’s galling moments, exhales slowly and jerks back the trigger. A riotous evening of homegrown comedy – like taking a ride in an open golf cart with a good friend and a 6-pack. From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly, his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.” Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press. This new 90-minute stand-up comedy show is a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian.

Johannes Linstead – Guitar of Fire
From being named Canada’s Guitarist of the Year, to winning eight Best Album awards, to seven top-ten US Billboard charting albums, and winning the People’s Choice award in the UK, Johannes Linstead has become recognized internationally as one of the best selling guitarists in the Instrumental, Jazz and World Music genres. Chances are even if you don’t know the name you’ve heard his music. Johannes’ songs have been used in some of the most popular TV shows, such as Californication with David Duchovny, The Following with Kevin Bacon, Burn Notice, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Pawn Stars, Person of Interest, and others. World champion figure skater Stephane Lambiel used Johannes’ song Zabuca as part of his choreography during the Winter Olympics, and recently Cafe Tropical was featured in the hugely popular video game Tropical 4 and 5. Johannes is an endorsed Influential Artist with Yamaha Guitars USA, the largest musical instrument manufacturer in the world, and in 2016 signed an endorsement deal with D’Addario, the largest string manufacturer in the world. His group consists of Latin percussion, accordion, bass and Spanish guitars, with each band member lending his own unique charisma, creating a rare on-stage chemistry that moves audiences to their feet, clapping along with the music and occasionally shouting out “ole!” They perform at many of the top music venues in the US and Canada, including the Catalina Island JazzTrax festival in California, which was named the #1 jazz festival in the US. Johannes’ legendary concerts have brought the group as far as the Middle-East, performing for royalty in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Together, Johannes and his group set the stage on fire as they let loose a fiesta of Spanish guitar magic.
