Snowed In Comedy Tour returns

The Snowed In Comedy Tour has turned in to a Canadian success story. In a market still dominated by American acts with American TV credits, a small Canadian comedy tour has managed to succeed. Like the Tragically Hip, they have done it by touring and gaining fans one performance at a time.

The tour started nine years ago with nine shows and has now grown to 44 cities with 50 performances, including four straight nights in Whistler, B.C.

When Dan Quinn started the Snowed In Comedy Tour nine years ago to go on a snowboarding vacation with some of the funniest comedians in the world, he never realized how big it would become. Now with over $1 million in ticket sales, the tour continues to grow every year.

Quinn has done numerous appearances on TV and radio and has won the Canadian Comedy Competition at Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.

He has performed on Comedy Now on CTV, The Debaters on CBC, Sirius XM radio and won Best of the Fest at the Hubcap Comedy Festival in Moncton, N.B. He travels around the world performing in England, The U.S. Australia, Switzerland and France.

Craig Campbell is a Canadian who is now based out of the UK, where he has performed on the hugely successful Michael Mcyntyre Comedy Road show. He is mega star comedian, Frankie Boyle’s opening act, in arenas in the United Kingdom.

To Canadian audiences, he may be remembered for being the former host of Ed the Sock and numerous Just For Laughs appearances.

Paul Myrehaug now resides in London, England but was born in Camrose, Alberta and tours around the Globe. He won the Great Canadian Laugh off $25,000 prize and has been on Just For Laughs, Sirius XM and The Debaters.

Pete Zedlacher is becoming one of the most recognized acts in Canada. He has been nominated five times for Comedian of the year, done the Just For Laughs Gala eight times and won the Sirius-XM Radio Top Comic Competition. Along with his acting credits he is now writing for the CBC Johnny Harris show, Of All Places.

The tour features four very different, yet all incredibly talented performers, with numerous TV and festival credits, but together they make up a fantastic evening of comedy, where everyone will walk away with their own personal favourite.

The tour finds its way to the Tidemark Theatre in Campbell River on Jan. 11. Tickets are available through the Tidemark Box Office (Tuesday to Friday, noon to 4 p.m.) or online at tickets.tidemarktheatre.com for $38.50 for adults and $28.50 for seniors and students plus applicable taxes and fees.

This is a licensed event, and ID will be checked at the door.
