Todd Butler brings his wit to Quadra

A contributor to CBC Radio and Television and a veteran of over twenty years of live performing as a guitarist/vocalist and comedian, Todd Butler’s skills are honed to an exquisite point.

He swings easily from lambasting politicians in hilarious political parodies to interpreting the latest news stories with a twist guaranteed to entertain you with a stunning combination of musical parody, whimsical wit, and outstanding musicianship.

“There are a whole lot of musicians who try to be funny, but not many comedians who can play guitar like Todd Butler” (Penguin Eggs). Combine this with edgy political satire, and you have an evening guaranteed to redefine your idea of what a comedy concert should be. The Todd Butler musical comedic experience is coming to the Heriot Bay Inn Friday Jan. 27 when Todd serves up a great evening of entertainment and Herons serves a three course meal to satisfy. Tickets for this show are $40. Reserve your seat and a room soon to be sure you get one! Call 250.285.3322.

Todd Butler has been guest host of CBC Radio’s Madly Off in All Directions, and has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival,

Winnipeg Comedy Festival on CBC TV, Vancouver Comedy Festival and the

Calgary Folk Festival, to name a few.

In concert Todd gets musical too, showing audiences why his 2003 instrumental CD, Dobro and Guitar (with Doug Cox) was picked as one of the year’s Top Ten by Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

His 2006 release, Idle Canadian, won the 2006 Vancouver Island Music Awards, CD of the Year, and he took home Song of the Year and Songwriter of the Year honors too.
