ABOUT DEBRA DIGIOVANNI
Debra DiGiovanni is a very funny woman — it says so on her business card! And the people agree. She was voted Canada’s “Best Female Comedian” at the 2007 Canadian Comedy Awards. This was her second win. In 2002 she was voted Canada’s “Best New Stand-Up.” Toronto’s NOW magazine (it’s the alt paper you must read as a Torontonian) called her “the best comic to see after a messy breakup” (it’s true! — she’ll hug you) and voted her self-produced stand-up show as the #1 show of 2007.
In 2007, Debra taped her first gala at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and she has since been back to host the prestigious Home Grown Competition (2008/2009). She’s also performed at the Halifax, Winnipeg, Sudbury, Moncton and St John’s Comedy Festivals (all during the winter!!). In the spring of 2008, Debra enjoyed a successful west coast run with her “Girls Night Out” tour, and she ended that year by headlining Massey Hall.

ABOUT MIKE PATERSON
Mike Paterson has been performing stand up comedy for longer than he cares to count. He has been featured in eleven Just For Laughs festivals, and he has travelled all across Canada performing his stand up comedy. He has also continued acting, both theatre and television and film acting. You might recognize Mike from television, where he has appeared in dozens of commercials as well as TV shows and movies. You can catch Mike on CBC Saturday mornings as the Supermarket “Grosser” Mr. Gross on the children’s game show Surprise! Mike’s recent commercial spots include the “Go le Gros” run for sports bar La Cage aux Sports. As well as a Hydro Quebec spot with fellow Montreal Comedian Joey Elias, warning people to look for power lines when renovating their houses. Stay tuned for Mike’s upcoming television projects; he will soon be filming a Comedy Now special, and he is part of the cast of humoriste Real Beland’s hilarious new show for Musique Plus, En Avant la Musique Plus
But most of all, Mike is a stand up comedian. You can see him performing live stand up all over Canada. It is a show you won’t soon forget, not only does Mike bring a tremendous infectious energy on stage with him, but he usually gets the whole audience involved by the time he’s through.


ON A SERIOUS NOTE:
Canadian Comedy Legend Mike MacDonald Needs our Help so the proceeds of this event will go to to him.
If you are not familiar with Mike MacDonald situation this is an article published in the Gazette a few days ago.
MONTREAL - The man they call the “king of Canadian comedy” is feeling anything but regal these days, let alone terribly funny. Mike MacDonald, who has been fighting all manner of maladies for as long as he has been in comedy, was recently dealt his cruelest blow yet. A little over a year ago, MacDonald was found to have hepatitis C, which not only affects the liver but can also trigger an array of other life-threatening ailments. He was told that if he could remain on medication and a special diet, he could at least be eligible for a liver transplant in two and a half years.
MacDonald figured he could work while waiting.
But then two months ago, MacDonald collapsed on stage and was taken to a hospital. He was suffering from liver poisoning. It got worse. A short time later, he contracted an infection that shut down his liver, which, in turn, shut down his kidneys. His doctor said his condition was so perilous that he couldn’t wait another two years for a transplant.
MacDonald can no longer work now. He is simply too weak. He can barely walk half a block.
He had to turn down the opportunity to appear at the Just for Laughs festival’s 30th anniversary bash in July. MacDonald has done just about every fest and has become synonymous with it, having performed there more than any other comic. He certainly could have used the funds. He has monstrous medical bills, as a result of health-care costs incurred in the U.S.
He is now living with his mother in Ottawa .
