The Montreal Center for Learning Disabilities Annual Free Comedy Night is back and better than ever June 3 | Entertainment
The Montreal Center for Learning Disabilities will be holding a free Zoom comedy show on Thursday, June 3 (8 p.m. to 9 p.m.) Because even a pandemic cannot stop a good cause. The Center, a non-profit organization that has existed for more than 60 years, is the only Englishman of its kind in the greater Montreal area to offer resources and information to children and adults with learning disabilities and ADHD.
The comedy show is meant to educate the organization with a little fun and laughter at a time when we need it most. “A lot of people haven’t heard what we have to offer yet,” said Pam Wener, vice-president and 27-year-old volunteer, who hosted the event with famed Canadian comedian Scott Faulconbridge, a local favorite.
With Faulconbridge, Heidi Foss, Canada’s award-winning comedy queen, whose riffs you’ve heard on CBC’s hit CBC series This Hour Has 22 Minutes; David Pryde, whose cerebral humor has taken him around the world and has won him writing concerts for The Onion and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog; and Martha Chaves, an actress, playwright, LGBTQ activist who is celebrated coast to coast for her comedy tours and CBC specials. Chaves is also the host of this year’s Comedy Night annual fundraiser.
“The Montreal Center for Learning Disabilities is a cause that I am personally passionate about,” added Wener. “I am proud of what we have accomplished this year by being able to reach more people to promote our groups, newsletters and free webinars. Thanks to our sponsors – Babar Books, Otta Jewelry, the Burnett family and Inspirations, the Center for Learning Disabilities of Montreal is able to offer this fantastic and fun event completely free of charge.
