The Douglas College Early Childhood Education Society is holding a fundraiser at Lafflines in New Westminster on June 21 at 8:00pm to benefit the New Westminster daycare playground which is in the middle of a major upgrade.
Headlined by one of Vancouver’s best comedians, Efthimios Nasiopoulos, the show will be opened by equally lauded Katrina Bennet and Susan Thompson. The event will also hold raffles throughout the evening!
Efthimios got his first influences as a comedian while growing up in a blue collar family in Toronto, ON and living in a multi-cultural city. His comedy gives us a hysterical insight into human nature and tears down many social conventions we take for granted. While using his acerbic wit and charm, he is able to take audiences to places further than they had expected. This summer he will be debuting his one man show ‘Disengaged at the Montreal Fringe Festival to be followed by the Toronto Fringe Festival. He’s also performed at JFL northwest, the Hubcap comedy festival, CBC’s The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and CBC’s LOL. You can hear him on Sirius XM where he’s released his first album ‘Efthimios’ available on ITunes.
Katrina is a firecracker of a hot mama. With two kids in tow, she finds the comedy in her gong-show of a life. Katrina is a winner of the BC’s Funniest Female Competitions & a cancer survivor. She tours regularly as a motivational speaker regarding her survival. She tours for comedy throughout BC and Alberta and there’s no stopping this talented woman! She’s a hard hitting comic with a (secret) soft heart and she will surely win yours.
Susan is an unique mix of sass and charm – a glass half empty kind of woman who begrudgingly still believes in fairy tales. She’s an active player in the Vancouver comedy scene and she’s been BC’s funniest female two times running, proving her worthiness everywhere she performs. Susan has toured Western Canada extensively and has opened for the likes of Sabrina Jaleels, WillC, Carla Collins, K-von, and Canadian comedy legend, Mike MacDonald.
Lafflines Comedy Club is located at The Columbia Theater – 530 Columbia Street in New Westminster, BC
