The Edmonton Comedy Festival Presents the Media Challenge starring Paul Sveen, on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 - 7:30PM at ATB Financial Arts Barns, Westbury Theatre (10330 84 Ave)

Hosted by Alex Fortin, headlined by Paul Sveen and, depending on how many chicken out, 11 local media personalities attempting stand-up comedy for the first or second or third time. From television, radio, and print you’ll recognize them all! Each has written a five-minute set with the winner, as chosen by our panel of judges, receiving a trophy and bragging rights at the next media scrum. This will be a combination of comedy and car crashes well worth the price of admission which we donate to our favorite charity, Free Footie.

This year’s contestants include: Mark Connolly - CBC Radio, Trent Wilkie – Freelance writer, Nahreman Issa – CTV, Lisa Evans - HOT 107, Ryder - HOT 107, Ami Amato - UP 99.3, James White – CRUZ, Dave Breakenridge - The Sun, Courtney Theriault - CITY TV, Rob Pepper - 91.7 Kiss, and Jenna Winterburn - 91.7 Kiss.

Tickets are $21.00, plus applicable fees.
