The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is excited to present our fourth annual Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Event headlining Laurie Elliott and Ian Sirota. Laurie Elliott is a stand-up comic, actor and television writer. She is a winner of the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award and is a four-time winner of Best Female Stand Up at The Canadian Comedy Awards. Her stand-up credits include the Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival (where she was chosen by the late, great Joan Rivers to perform on her final Gala show), the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Comedy Factory in Rotterdam, Raw Comedy Club in Stockholm, the SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto, and a gala run at the Cape Town International Comedy Festival in South Africa. She has had recurring roles/appearances on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial, CBC’s The Red Green Show (she married Harold!), The Jon Dore Television Show, Match Game and The Debaters. Laurie’s voice can be heard on many animated series such as Total Drama Island, Scaredy Squirrel, and Camp Lakebottom. Laurie was also a regular on WWF star Chris Jericho’s award winning web series, But I’m Chris Jericho. Ian Sirota has opened for: Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Gaffigan, Dennis Miller, Robin Williams and Dana Carvey and headlines comedy clubs across North America. Ian was a regular cast member and writer for Comedy Inc., Comedy Now, Gutterball Alley and many more! Ian has been nominated for not one but two Gemini Awards including “Best Comedy Performance”. Ian’s famous hoax on Jerry Springer was recently named 50th funniest moment in Canadian Comedy History by SiriusXM Radio. Number 50 out of the top 150 in history not too shabby. This sharp tongued, comedian takes no prisoners and can also blend in observational humour with a family focus all the while mastering the audience with lightning crowd work. Tickets are $40 (tax included) and all proceeds go to the Kawartha Lakes Food Source. This is an age of majority event. Additional convenience fees will apply. Kawartha Lakes Food Source is a not for profit organization that has been serving the community for over 15 years. We are the warehouse that procures and stores food from reclamation and donations and supplies it on a fair share basis to the nine food banks within the City of Kawartha Lakes. We also support twenty-one schools with their breakfast/snack programs. We rely solely on donations from the community and successful applications to foundations and grants – we do not receive support from any level of government. We thank you for your support!
