In an effort to bring some laughter into an otherwise surreal season in the Cariboo, the South Cariboo Theatre and Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship (CCLF) are partnering up with a stand-up comedy night called The Return with well-known comedian Leland Klassen.

A four-year veteran of Just for Laughs in Montreal, and The Halifax Comedy Fest in 2014, Klassen has been to 100 Mile several times before.

“Leland always delivers with great family-friendly humour,” says Rick Barker, pastor of CCLF at the 108. “He has a self-deprecating style of comedy, making fun of himself and everyday situations that gets the crowd roaring with side-splitting laughter.

“We originally scheduled him for back in July when we were doing the Canada 150th celebrations. Then the fires hit and evacuations in various places – all our plans went up in smoke, so to speak. We really believe that laughter is one of the best medicines so we are bringing Leland in for a free show for people of the Cariboo, many of which may still be out of their homes.”

The comedy night takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. at the South Cariboo Theatre, which donated the venue for the event. The show is sponsored in part by a Community Foundations of Canada grant. No tickets are required.

“Just come and enjoy the night with your family,” Barker added.
