6 Reasons to Check Out Ha!ifax ComedyFest’s LGBTQLMFAO Show

Get ready to laugh your ass off this Friday, April 26 at Halifax ComedyFest‘s inaugural comedy show celebrating LGBTQ comedians and allies; the LGBTQLMFAO Show at Casino Nova Scotia!

Here are 6 reasons to check out this hilarious show:

REASON #1: Emal El-Husseini

A Canadian, a Palestinian, a Muslim, and a lesbian walk into a bar… ladies and gentlemen, it’s just Eman El-Husseini. Her life is a current event. From the Muslim ban to Palestinian rights and marriage equality to the ice cream truck that insists on parking in front of her building, it’s all happening and it’s happening to her.


REASON #2: Chanty Marostica

Known for their unique brand of high energy physical comedy, Chanty Marostica brings jokes to life through a combination of storytelling, impressions, and spot on timing. Chanty is also the first out trans comic to be named Sirius FM’s Top Comic.


REASON #3: Andrew Johnston

Johnston has quickly made a name for himself as one of the most prolific gadabouts and hottest up and comers on the Toronto comedy scene.


REASON #4: Ted Morris

Boyishly charming Ted Morris always looks like he’s having the most fun in the room when he’s on stage. His intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile lets us all know that our slightly warped thoughts are just fine.


REASON #5: Kyle Brownrigg

Kyle’s quick wit, incisive observations, and bold stage presence are hilariously memorable, whether he is tackling senseless or serious subject matter.


REASON #6: Hal Sparks

You probably remember him as the “gay-adjacent” star of Queer As Folk, but Hal Sparks has also been a stand-up comedian since he was 16. He considers stand-up as his first love, has a lot to say on a lot of topics, and is a vocal ally of the LGBTQ community.
