THE BEST COMEDY SHOW IN THE WORLD

Not quite, but close.

Here is an independent review of The Great Canadian Comedy Extravaganza by freelance journalist Joel Friesen.

Less than one hundred people showed up to The Pat last Thursday to watch the show that was billed as the best comedy show of the year. With the lack of energy from the crowd, the onus lied on the comedians to supply all of the electricity for the evening. Some of the comedians faired better than others.

Comedian Dez Reed, who it seemed was a fan favourite from the outset, headlined the event, with another Canadian comedy superstar Ron Vaudry co-headlining.

Reed and Vaudry brought the house down with hilarious, intelligent comedy and other solid performances by Joe DeLorey and Jody Peters made up for less than stellar performances by comedy veteran Bryan Cox and comedy rookie Kelly Taylor.

Cox's material didn't fly with the young audience whose average age was well under 25. His act would clearly be better suited for an over forty crowd, but this student heavy audience wasn't amused.

Making his "big show" debut was Kelly Taylor, Saskatchewan's newest comedian. His inexperience and lack of deep material showed, but he was otherwise competent and the crowd was patient and supportive.

The show was hosted by Tom Liske began comedy just four years ago and already seems to know his way around a stage. He sung comedy songs which got the lethargic audience "into" the show.

Overall, the show wasn't quite what it was advertised to be, the best show of the year, but it was close enough and had more people braved the cold, the show would have likely been even better.




2003 Great Canadian Comedy Extravaganza is up for bids from nightclubs and halls across the country.
