Hi my name is Johanne Britton and I'm excited to write for the JH-5 comedy blog. I too write about the comedy scene around Montreal. I love to laugh and what better way to show my appreciation tell the world about the talent we have in our city. Just like Jen. I'll be bringing you every week a post on the Montreal scene. I'll start with a comic who will be gracing Ottawa as well as Toronto on his world tour. Doug Stanhope, the crude, the hilarious, forgot about being PC. He's just great! I can't wait to see him this Thursday at Katacombes, 1635 St-Laurent in Montreal. He will be in Ottawa, the next day at Mavericks Bar, 221 Rideau St. He is a comedian to be watched. He will make you ohh and ahh and laugh out so loud, you'll cry. I agree his humor is not for the weak or easily offended, but if you can let go of your pride for a bit you will see that he is just amazing.Get your tickets here at Brown Paper TicketsOttawa ; Montreal
Opening for him both shows will be Franck Chevrier from This Won't Blow
. A podcast put on by himself, Tony Lalonde, Kara Mabee every couple of weeks. Check it out!
