The Human Condition Comedy Tour will be a ground breaking and historic journey. Three comedians will be traveling all across this great country to lift spirits and raise money for several different local charities and causes with the support of their sponsors, friends, families and fanbase. This will be a monumental tour. “We wanted to put on a tour that represents human connection amongst anything. Regardless of our differences it’s always beautiful to be able to find a common cause that brings everyone together.” The Tour consists of three comedians:

Shawn Gramiak: For almost 20 years, Shawn Gramiak has been a comedian, educator, writer, entrepreneur and award-winning public speaker and podcaster.

Scott Porteous: In the 16 years that Scott Porteous has been performing comedy he’s been able to perform all over the U.S. and Canada sharing his personal style of humour.

Frank Russo: Frank Russo is known for taking the mundane and dragging it into the absurd. Proceeds to the Revelstoke and District Humane Society.
