The show drew big laughs from a sold-out crowd last year, so the Hun City Hunnies are bringing it back.

The non-profit community improvement society is hosting its Second Annual Comedy Night at the 100 Mile Community Hall on Oct. 3.

“We’ve got some big names in the comedy world lined up, and we’re really excited to bring them to 100 Mile House,” says Danielle McLauchlin, one of the organizers.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing this event back, as we so much enjoyed hosting it last year.”

The 19-plus event will feature Vancouver-based comedians Damonde Tschritter, Katie-Ellen Humphries and Kevin Banner.

Tickets are $20 each, while groups can reserve tables of eight for $160.

“It’s so much more fun when you can sit with your peeps,” says Hun City Hunnies member Jennifer Frizzi.

“Tables were a hot commodity last year, and there is a limited number available. You can reserve your table at TW Tanning [470A Birch Ave.].”

Doors open at 7 p.m.

“We loved hosting an event the community seemed so enthusiastic about, and we really want to bring that enthusiasm back,” says organizer Nadaya Tresierra.

Tschritter’s TV specials have aired on CTV, CBC, HBO, Comedy Network and Comedy Central. His radio stints include CBC’s The Debaters and Madly Off in All Directions. He has also performed at Just for Laughs.

Humphries’ biography mentions she’s a Canadian National five-kilometre Open Water Swimming Champion. She’s opened for Bruce McCulloch, of Kids in the Hall fame, at San Francisco SketchFest. She’s also performed in the award-winning comedy cabaret Atomic Vaudeville, based in Victoria, and got a lot of laughs at the famous Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle and the Vancouver International Comedy Festival.

Banner is Bite TV’s 2011 “Stand Up & Bite Me People’s Champ.” His bio says he’s a rising talent in Canadian comedy and performs across the country.
