Tonight at Yuk Yuks, 10 comedians will compete in the Great Canadian Laugh Off, the winner of which flies to beautiful sunny Toronto for the national finals (and boy, will their arms be tired. Hi-yoo!). No pressure either, considering that last year, Halifax’s Mark Little took home $25,000 funny bones.
Little’s Picnicface pals are well-represented in the local finals, with Kyle Dooley, Evany Rosen and wildcard Cheryl Hann all competing, along with Josh Dunn, Catherine Robertson, Steve Mackie, Scott MacLean, Kyle Hickey, Peter White and Matt Labouki.
We asked Coast cover laugh-lady Robertson how she was feeling before the big night: “I’m totally excited, and I feel a bit like a jack-in-the-box waiting to pop out the top,” she says. “My jack-in-the-box plays ‘Dancing With Myself.’ I know it’s going to be a killer show and a tight competition. I can’t wait to get onstage Wednesday!”
