Mark Tewksbury, and The Dark Comedy Festival Posted by Michael Jagdeo / October 25, 2013 0 Comments Sometimes I look at the weekly line-up and have to just shake my head with my dunk face on as I consider all of the amazing shows we have coming up. This edition, we preview everything from Mark Tewksbury’s appearance on Monkey Toast to a festival featuring the Roast of the Iron Sheik. Where? When? Follow me as I walk you through This Week In Comedy… MON OCT 28 / CREAM OF COMEDY / SECOND CITY / 51 MERCER / 8PM / $15 The Tim Sims Encouragement Fund was established in memory of Toronto comedic performer, Tim Sims. Five finalists out of a field of twenty-one will have 15 minutes to prove that they should win $5,000.00 and a scholarship to the Toronto Second City Training Centre. Your choices will be Brandon Ash Mohammed, Diana Bailey, Franco Nguyen, Nigel Grinstead, and The Weaker Vessels. I know I shouldn’t pick favourites, but Diana Bailey is going to be hard to beat. She’s young, talented, has had the chops to host the ber-popular Fan Fiction The Show and even put on her own one-woman show a few months back! Dawgs, she’s just twenty-three freakin’ years old. While some might argue that the judging criteria should be limited to what happens on the stage Monday Night, few can contest the fact that Diana has the confidence, work ethic, and charm to be the next big thing.
