Joke Your Way Through January
Jan 15, 2015
There are many types of jokes. Some are based on satire, others on dark humour. Sometimes a recent controversial topic that no one should even joke about can get the most laughs. Amy Pohler and Tina Fey proved that in their introduction monologue at the recent 2015 Golden Globe Awards. Humour is a personal expression, and what strikes one person as funny may leave another scratching their head. Regardless of what comedy style suits you the most, the Great Northern Casino’s Kokanee Komedy Night each Wednesday in January is sure to make you smile. Brave the January weather and come on out to be entertained by comedians Tim Koslo, Brandon Franson, Trent McClellan, and Noor Kidwai.
Multi-faceted comedian Tim Koslo and Brandon Franson will be showing off their particular brand of comedy on Weds Jan 21. Brandon Franson was a finalist in the 2014 Edmonton Comedy Festival’s Young Guns competition. If you’re not familiar with him take a look at his Twitter or Facebook page. Tim Koslo may not be a “young gun” but he definitely is one heck of a funny guy. He has been performing stand-up in Canada and internationally for more than 20 years. Take a look at Tim’s website where you can learn all about him and his career, or take a sneak peak at his comedy to see what you’re getting into by checking out this demo reel on YouTube.
On Weds. Jan 28 Trent McClellan and Noor Kidwai will be taking the stage. You might have seen Trent McClellan on his comedy special on CTV, on Canada Reads last year, or heard him on The Debaters on CBC radio. If you are unfamiliar with his comedy you can get a sample here. You could say that Noor Kidwai is a local boy having grown up in High River, AB. As one of the only brown kids in a small town Noor learned fast that he had to find his niche. For him that niche is comedy and as it turns out, he’s pretty good at it!

Everyone likes a good laugh, and this January the Great Northern Casino has got a truckload of them every Wednesday night. Shows start at 8pm and tickets are $10 per person. See you there!
