Al Lubel is a regular on major US TV chat shows and a favourite of Jerry Seinfield (yes the Seinfeld from the sitcom, Seinfeld). Al became a lawyer to please his mother and a comedian to please himself (which did not please his mother). He quickly quit law and within a year won the $100,000 Grand Prize for comedy on Star Search. Its worked out pretty well as more recently, he made his fifth appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman and his seventh on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He’s also been the tour support of choice for comedy legends Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Hicks.
His shows mesmerise audiences with stunningly well crafted and self aware observations full of terrific little asides – so much so that you’ll never forget his name.
“Has one of the best jokes I ever heard” Jerry Seinfeld
“A terrifically funny comedian” David Letterman

Allyson Smith has, from the moment she put down the chalk brush in 2000 and picked up a mic, been tickling Canada’s comedy scene to great acclaim. Playing to packed rooms has become like another day in the classroom for this former school teacher.
Her credits include her own hour long Comedy Now special, appearances on
CBC Radio’s hit show The Debaters, and the Winnipeg, Halifax and Just For Laughs Festivals, to name just a few. A multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominee for Best Female Stand-Up. Allyson is now making waves in the UK where sassy stand-up and hilariously insightful commentary is going down a treat.
“Reminds me of a younger, prettier, funnier me. Now if you’ll excuse me, the ladies from my bridge club have arrived.” Stewart Francis
