A NIGHT OF LETTERKENNY COMEDY
Letterkenny is a Canadian television sitcom created by Jared Keeso that debuted on CraveTV in February 2016, and later also aired on The Comedy Network.

'A Night of Letterkenny Comedy' will feature comics Nathan Dales, Jared Keeso, Mark Forward and K. Trevor Wilson
Lisa Lampanelli is Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean. Heralded as "more than a standup -- a standout,” by comedy legend Jim Carrey, Lampanelli is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen. She has won accolades from The King of All Media Howard Stern, who called her "a true original and a brilliant comedy mind who'll steal the show every time." Known for saying things that most people are afraid to think, Lisa Lampanelli's raunchy, gut-busting performances are wildly popular at theaters across the U.S. and Canada. This equal opportunity offender is a regular on late night television, and a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius XM satellite radio shows. Lisa recently shot her fifth stand-up special, Back to the Drawing Board, proving this insult comic is new, improved, and funnier than ever.
Dave Atkinson was born in a hospital, raised by humans and educated by disinterested Catholics in Marathon, Ontario, a mining and pulp town once described as “there” by many geographers.

There were also stints at a national park, gold mine, and lumber yard in there somewhere. He has also been in some plays and published some short stories and started eating salad. His Dad is, to say the least, confused.
