Tonight's the Night! With Dave Barclay

January 14, 2017 | Carol Riddell | No Comments | #news

Tonight! Are you in - or near - Toronto?

(Bad Dog Theatre Company, 875 Bloor St. W.)

Do you love Comedy? And/or the NFL?

"It's hard to say what is more exciting about the first 2017 edition of Tonight's the Night! with Dave Barclay (Toronto's Premiere Live Late Night Talk Show), the fact that the King of Canadian Comedy, Mark Little, will be present to perform and be interviewed by me with my trademark "oddball" queries?

Or, is the more exciting thing that we are convening a panel of NFL Experts to pitch me a new team to be a fan of? I should explain that my current favourite team, the San Diego Chargers, may be moving to Los Angeles, thus releasing me from fandom obligations and making me a free agent of sorts in the realm of Americaball. 

We have representatives from the fanbases of 
1) The Best team in the NFL, the New England Patriots (represented by Lauren Messervey)
2) The worst team in the NFL, the Cleveland Browns (represented by Ned Petrie)
3) The most skull-associated team in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders (represented by Phil Moorhead) 

We'll also have the usual topical monologue, fun hijinks and thrills that come on every Tonight's the Night! Come on down after you're finsihed doing whatever you do on Saturdays!"
Dave Barclay's not only a super-smart nice guy, he's a great comedian and comedy writer.
Check him out ASAP!

Kara Chandler - Cher Tribute Artist

January 14, 2017 | Carol Riddell | No Comments | #news

TONIGHT:  If you're in - or near - Brantford, you should get out to this show: Abbamania, Adele, Cher, Bowie, McCartney & BeeGees.

Kara's awesome: When we first worked with her, she was a little teeny-bopper with a big personality, a beautiful voice, and super comic timing! She just keeps getting better :)

Over the past few years, Kara's created this Cher Tribute that you just have to see. She's also done Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Agnetha Faltskog, from ABBA, and Lady Gaga (I can't wait to catch that show). Kara's been touring all across Canada, into the US, and will be playing on the Mexican Riviera in February (Lucky duck!)

Here's some press Kara got: (click and hold to highlight for easier reading)  With her uncanny resemblance to the famous star and with 10 years of theatrical experience in musicals behind her, Kara Chandler personifies Cher without any difficulty at all. She embodies the living legend on stage in a way like no other can. Now, after 6 years performing her Cher - Believe show in dinner theatres, casinos and concert halls, Kara has built a reputation as one of the top Cher tribute artists in the world. Her  combination of boundless energy, charisma and talent lets her easily morph into her alter ego Cher and give audiences the powerful and unforgettable experience that only a true star is capable of giving. Like Cher, Kara Chandler is an entertainer of the highest order.

 Fortunately for us, she still makes time to come out and play in the mysteries once in a while!

February 11, 2015 | Carol Riddell | No Comments | #news

I'd love to hear from other entrepreneurs. It seems like Kijiji has changed, or maybe other, social media, has taken over. It's interesting figuring these things out. What are your experiences?
