Italian. Greek. Lebanese. African. We all come from somewhere in Canada, and there’s no point denying that we’re a rather mutt-ish bunch of ethnicities. While once upon a time, we could be just one hyphen (African-Canadian, Italian-Canadian), we hyphen up our backgrounds like we’re creating some kind of fusion music that’s sure to take home the Juno (Nepalese-Bahamian-Argtentinian-Native American-Canadian).
Some people manage to make looking at their culturally diverse families into a sport. Comedians, mostly. We have a pair of tickets to give away to the Ethnic Show at Metropolis on July 27th at 7:00pm. The JFL team is bringing in a bunch of favorites like Yannis Pappas who has a thing or two to say about being Greek.
Another highlight appearing is Gina Brillon who celebrates coming from the Bronx and being Puerto Rican.
Jessica Kirson is known for her multiple characters, including the confident but ugly girl, and a Jewish Grandmother. Her youtube channel Jessy on the Road has over 100 clips to watch of her adventures hitting multiple states.
Hosting is Rachid Badouri, Quebec-born Moroccan comedian. Don’t worry, he’ll host in English!
Other comedians appearing are the unstoppable Godfrey, Dom Irrera, and NEMR.
