We’ve taken the pledge to help 519Pursuit collect 519 pairs of white socks. Although it is not often thought about, socks are one of the most commonly asked-for items in shelters. These socks will be donated to The Mission Services of London, The Unity Project, Y.O.U (Youth Opportunities Unlimited), London Cares, The Ark Aid & The 519Pursuit Outreach Team. If you’re coming to the club during the month of October, please bring a pair of white socks to donate. Thank you for your support!
THIS WEEK’S COMEDIANS
From a blue collar background, Nick Beaton cuts through the bullshit of an overly bureaucratic society that takes itself way too seriously. Whether it’s done through his opinionated rants, hard hitting jokes, or his disarming “every man” personality Nick Beaton is a favorite wherever he performs. He has performed on 3 continents, 6 countries, and over 40 cities. His recent Edinburgh Festival show received glowing five star reviews, from both “Broadway Baby” and “Three Weeks,” the latter of which described him as having, “enviable confidence, timing, and manner of a comedian with decades of experience beyond his years.” He has performed at Montreal’s International Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, the Icebreakers Comedy Festival and has received numerous accolades for his comedy, including being a myspace featured comedian and winning the 2007 Just For Laughs Toronto Homegrown Competition, as well as being nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards including one for his comedy special that aired nationally in Canada.
Fireball. Comedy Warrior. Addict Whisperer. Mom. Whatever the title, Melanie Rose has one hell of a story to tell. This Divorced, Mother of four continues to stun and charm audiences across the country with her tales of marriage, divorce, past drug addiction and mental health issues - always finding the funny within. She’s a favourite at comedy clubs throughout the country, opening for Nikki Payne, Caroline Rhea and Canadian legend, Mike MacDonald. A Yuk Yuk’s regular, she’s also been featured on CRAVE TV, the critically-acclaimed show, “She Kills Me,” Victoria’s Funny Women Festival and numerous corporate events.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll probably refresh your drink. But, mostly, you’ll wonder if it’s all true. Trust us, it is.
Rob Ross is a sought after Canadian headlining stand-up comic and accomplished award winning television writer based in Toronto. Performing credits include: A one hour Comedy Now special on The Comedy Network and CTV, CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival, CBC’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Just For Laughs, JFL42, CTV’s Open Mike and CBC’s 9 O’Clock Show. He was just 24 years old when he did
Ross has played comedy clubs across North America and performed on such prestige stages as Toronto’s Massey Hall and Royal Alexandra Theatre, plus The Burton Cummings Theatre for the Performing Arts in Winnipeg. Ross was head writer and creative producer for the popular MTV Canada show MTV Live and was a producer for CBC’s award winning hit series Canada’s Smartest Person. Other credits include CBC’s Still Standing, Rick Mercer Report, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s, Over The Rainbow, Royal Canadian Air Farce, Street Cents, The NHL Awards, The Canadian Country Music Awards, Gemini Awards and The Junos on CTV.
Another credit is writing for Prime Minister Stephen Harper for two Parliamentary Press Gallery Dinners. But if you don’t like Harper he didn’t. Original, energetic, fast paced and engaging, Ross involves his audiences in laugh packed performances from start to finish. He is also way friendlier than he looks.
