Musical comedians on stage this week

Two nationally acclaimed funny men will be on stage in Williams Lake this week.

Two nationally acclaimed funny men will be on stage in Williams Lake this week brought to the community by the Williams Lake Community Arts Council.

Award-winning playwright, author, comedian, singer-songwriter and all around funny man Elliott will be on stage at the Gibraltar Room Wednesday, Oct. 19.

The Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddlers will also be joining him in opening for his act.

While political humour creeps into his show, Elliott says a lot of his humour these days comes from he and his wife’s attempts to live off the land on the farm near Montreal that has been in his family for generations.

He likes to find mirth in things that people will find funny 10 and even 100 years from now — “this thing about being human on the planet.”

Tickets are $20 general admission and $15 for seniors and students and can be purchased at The Open Book, Kit and Kaboodle and The Station House Gallery.

Then on Thursday, Oct. 20 RupLoops, with performer Rup Sidhu brings his wicked cool one-man show The Human Radio to the Lake City Secondary School Williams Lake common’s stage with the show starting at 7 p.m.

“The show itself is a work in progress,” says Venta Rutkauskas arts council co-ordinator.

Prior to his public performance Sidhu is facilitating several songwriting workshops with lakecity students that emphasize vocal percussion, live looping and creative expression.

Tickets are $15 regular and $10 for students available at Lake City secondary’s Williams Lake campus or at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.
