Canadian humourist, storyteller, musician, and playwright Lorne Elliott is bringing his show of comedy and musical theatre to Fernie.

Elliott began performing in 1974 as a folk musician in east coast Canada. At the same time he was writing fiction, songs, monologues, and one-liners. The outcome of his beginning is a very special one man show of comedy and music that is totally original, entertaining, foolish, and uplifting. The comic has spent the past 26 years touring and performing in theatres and arts centres across Canada, the U.S., and Australia.

Combining dry humour with musical parodies and skits, Elliott is a shrewd observer of the human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly, and never profane, Elliott is funny and family friendly. He is also a playwright, has been regularly featured on TV programs such as the Just For Laughs Festival and Comedy Variety Specials in Canada and the U.S., and is best known for his long running CBC radio comedy series, “Madly Off In All Directions”.

Catch the Canadian funny man when he comes to town Saturday, April 12. The show will get started at 8 pm at The Arts Station. Tickets are available at Carosella, Freshies, online (www.eventbrite.ca), and at the door.
