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.
