Description

HB’s Lounge is starting what they will hope will be an annual event — The Lethbridge Comedy Festival. Yuk Yuks stand-up comics from across Canada will be performing  throughout the week.

Tonight beginning around 8 p.m., Stan Thomson, Karen O’Keefe and Mark Walker perform.

Tickets cost $10 per show or $25 for three shows, $50 for all five shows. 

 Stan Thomson

He has been featured on CHCH-TV's "Comedy at Club 54" which airs nationally on the Comedy Network. Stan is the quintessential Everyman. Before stepping on to a comedy stage, he worked on an oil rig, drove truck, was an apprentice electrician, a substitute teacher and a cable TV installer. Currently, he has successfully dedicated himself to the world of standup comedy.

Stan Thomson has become a master entertainer. From county fairs to the Calgary Stampede, Stan is no stranger to giving an audience what it wants. Either "squeaky clean" or a little rough around the edges, he delivers the laughs with style and panache. He is most often described as a warm and hilarious storyteller to whose subjects we can all relate.

On the corporate front, Stan has provided the comedy razzmatazz for The Heart and Stroke Foundation, Shell Canada Ltd., The Calgary Air Conditioning & Sheet Metal Association, the Canadian Association of Drilling Engineers and Manalta Coal Ltd.

Whether performing a customized routine or dishing up his chosen fare of the day, the humor is always topical and rib-tickling. And if pushed to make a comparison, one could say that Stan is to comedy what the Colonel is to chicken. 

Karen O’Keefe 

Karen is sassy, silly, and always witty. Having grown up in northern Canada, she has her own take on dating, drinking, and life in the city. Karen was featured on the CBC Radio One series So You Think You're Funny?, and is currently heard on XM satellite radio's Laugh Attack. 

 

Mark Walker

Mark Walker is a comedian with an incredible ability to combine razor sharp comedy with a dazzling array of celebrity impressions. His insights into the idiosyncrasies of life combined with his impressions of everyone from Jimmy Stewart to Joe Pesci have led him to become one of Canada’s most celebrated comedians and voice impressionists. Originally from Truro, Nova Scotia, Mark has been headlining at comedy clubs across Canada and internationally since 1988.

He has also been invited to numerous comedy festivals including Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, and the Cape Town Comedy Festival in South Africa. And Mark has been entertaining corporate audiences for the past 12 years at various events.
