POP Montreal is known for bringing together artists of all genres and mixing up shows that are worth so much more than their ticket prices. This year on the comedy to-do list we have Merv Hartlen.
Originally from Hallifax, Merv performed at Halifax Pop Explosion, appeared in Atlantic Fringe Festival and was featured on the cover of The Coast Magazine. He is a regular guest at Yuk Yuks clubs across the country, on Eastlink Television and Sirius XM’s Laugh Attack.
Hartlen is an entrepreneur at heart, and like any other entrepreneur out there, he was involved in a start-up company called i Bang Bitches Dot Com. Instead of a business plan you could listen to the song about this ingenious money making idea.
His other achievements included successfully kicking out his roommate after he refused to pay his part of the rent and transforming that extra room into a real fun house. On Absolute Comedy Toronto Merv humbly opens up with a subject of jobs, being unemployed, smoking up and similar topics. He surely makes you laugh.
This year before Merv goes on stage Pop Montreal presents to you Country, Maxxx Flair, Wish, Merv Hartlen and Idgy Dean. Don’t miss out on a chance to catch the last bits of summer with Pop Montreal’s concerts.
Merv Hartlen show will take place Saturday, September 18 at the Cabaret Playhouse, 5656 Avenue du Parc at 9 p.m. $10 Get more info HERE
