Lorne Elliott on stage at Mary Winspear

Comedian, musician to play at Winspear Centre on Nov. 5

Lorne Elliott comes to Sidney on Nov. 5.

Comedian, musician, playwright and radio personality Lorne Elliott hits the stage at the Charlie White Theatre on Nov. 5.

Canadian born, Elliott has performed from Newfoundland to New York City, from Los Angeles to Australia and at many points in between.

He has opened concerts for Rodney Dangerfield in New York City and Jay Leno in Montreal and he has also made regular appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival since it started in 1986.

Elliott started performing in 1974 as a folk musician in East Coast Canada. At the same time he kept writing fiction as well as songs, monologues and one-liners.

The outcome of such training is a very special show of comedy and music, which is totally original, entertaining, up-lifting and foolish enough to make everybody laugh. Along with his unique and wacky performance style, it is the timelessness of his material, joined with keen observations of today’s trends that make his work so special.

Tickets for Elliott’s show on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. cost $28 and are available at the Mary Winspear box office. For more information visit marywinspear.ca or call 250-656-0275.
