The Media Challenge

Hosted and headlined by Andrew Grose and, depending on how many chicken out, 9 local media personalities attempting stand-up comedy for the first or second or third 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.

Starring: Eileen Bell - 630 CHED, Jenna Winterburn - 98.5 CFWE, Nahreman Issa - CTV, Trent Wilkie - Freelance, Lisa Evans - play 107, Ryder - play 107, Courtney Theriault - CITY TV, Jeff Holland - KISS 91.7 and Nancy Carlson - CBC.
