What's On Today


First Annual Lethbridge Comedy Festival “Nasty Show”
Fri, Aug 28



 HB’s Lounge is starting what they will hope will be an annual event — The Lethbridge Comedy Festival. Yuk Yuks stand-up comics from across Canada will be performing  throughout the week. Mark Craigdallie, Andrew Iwanyk and Dan Guiry perform tonight.

Tickets cost $10 per show or $25 for three shows, $50 for all five shows.

Mike Craigdallie —

Mike Craigdallie is a unique, spontaneous, crowd pleaser who enjoys interacting with the  people around him. Mike is from Prince George, B.C. and brings some of his small town ideals to the big city. He has the ability to focus a crowd on the show ahead, and involve them where their input is necessary. Drawing on his own life experience, Mike deals with romance, relationships, and losing houses easily, because those things come straight out of his diary. You are sure to find Mike’s razor sharp wit a smack to the funny bone. 

Andrew Iwanyk —

Andrew Iwanyk travels around the world telling jokes. He actively promotes and distributes the Ram Horn hairstyle. 


Dan Guiry —

I first began making people blow milk out their noses in elementary. Little did I realize that this would be a recurring theme throughout my life. I was voted “funniest person” in grade nine and I couldn’t understand why people wouldn’t take me seriously. It was then that I expanded into the world of improvisation and acting. I did every play I could in high school and was even elected captain of the Improv team (Smashy Smashy And the Rage Case Senario). I led the team to greatness when we achieved the highest scoring scene of the high school Improv tournament, where we would later suffer defeat. I took it in stride and I began improvising with the Loose Moose Theatre company. We traveled into the depths of lunacy with the 53 hour Impro Challenge where i was on stage for 53 hours straight with 5 other Improvisers. It was around this time that I first discovered Stand Up Comedy. It was with Stand Up Comedy that I finally found a place where I could utilize all of my talents: music, improv, and hilarity. This is how people would finally take me seriously. I quickly began touring Western Canada building up my act.It’s been five years since then and I have had the oppourtunity to tour coast to coast with Yuk Yuks and last year I was a finalist in the Great Canadian Laugh Off. Stand Up Comedy helped me learn how to use my voice and subsequently I landed a role on APTN’s cartoon “Raven Tales,” which is now going into its fifth season. Throughout all of this madness I have toured and played with four bands. All of which have crashed and burned in the turbulent landscape of the music business. Music has always been a love of mine, since the age of five when I first started playing piano and later when I taught myself guitar, bass, and triangle. This past year I have composed the score to two plays(”Caligula” and “The Glass Menagerie”) for the Calgary based theatre company, Theatre Encounter. Currently I’m involved in a Calgary Fringe Festival Sketch show “Boobs: a Tale of Two Titties” and working on an album with my Band “Illicit Business”. I am planning another east coast tour with Yuk Yuk’s and for whatever awaits me…
