Just for Laughs

Fundraising Show with Lorne Elliott

Canadian comedian Lorne Elliott has performed across Canada, the United States and Australia. Getting his start in the 1970s as a writer and folk musician, he went on to write comedic material which he performed as one-man shows. His timeless material and unique performance style makes Elliott a favourite among audience members of all demographics.


“I was born so far back I can hardly remember and grew up normally, I think. I started going on stage at a time when hair like mine was fashionable, and I hung a guitar around my neck to complete the look. Somewhere around that time people started laughing at me, and I saw no reason why I shouldn’t join them.” – Lorne Elliott


Join Lorne Elliott as he takes to the stage at Victoria Playhouse for one night only exploring a new genre he calls Canadian Gothic!

Side Hustle in the Flesh

The Guild presents: Side Hustle in the time of Covid-19! They’re back. They’re brilliant. And they’re ready to get the heck out of the house on numerous occasions just to thumb their noses at pandemics, lockdowns and the fact only 50 people can come to each show. That’s why there are two! And maybe more! If you buy tickets, that is… no pressure or anything. Join the collective comedic team as they bulldoze their musical, manic and maniacal way through your suggestions, their hopes and dreams for a better future and all things happy and hopeful while you laugh, judge and probably wish you were as cool as them in two spectacular (not an endorsement) nights of frivolity fed by feral females needing attention and adoration Side. Find them at The Guild February 19th and March 11th. Tickets only $25. And may Side Hustle have mercy on your suggestions.

In a relatively short period of time, Danny has established himself as one of the biggest-selling comedians in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as his home country of Scotland. In November 2014, he did his first tour of the U.S. for his critically acclaimed show ‘Dear Epson’, and in 2016, continued building on his success with his tour ‘Please Untick This Box’ with sold out shows in Australia and New Zealand and his sold out Canadian tour ‘Commonwealth Comedian’.

The Gemini-nominated performer has made annual appearances at all the major festivals around the world including regular appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. In early 2012, he recorded his first worldwide DVD in his home town of Edinburgh, ‘Live At The Festival Theatr’e. He has also been featured on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ and has recorded a one-hour Comedy Central special entitled Subject To Change.

He creates a remarkable intimacy with his audience. A must-see.” – The Age, Australia
