Media Challenge

Thursday, Oct. 12th 7:30pm
ATB Financial Arts Barns

Hosted by Kevin Stobo, starring Tim Nutt, and depending on how many chicken out, featuring 14 local media personalities attempting stand-up comedy for the first or second time. From television, radio, and print you’ll recognize them all.

Each has written a five minute set with the winner, as chosen by our panel of judges, receiving a trophy and bragging rights at the next media scrum. This will be a combination of comedy and car crashes well worth the price of admission which we donate to our favorite charity Free Footie.

If you take in only one show at this year’s festival this is the one we recommend; but get your tickets early because it sells out fast!
