Whiskey Jack – Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom @ Astor Theatre
Oct 2 @ 7:30 pm

For 4 decades, Whiskey Jack has been performing their unique brand of Canadian country music coast to coast.  In the 1980’s, they were featured weekly on CBC TV’s Tommy Hunter Show.  Watching the Whiskey Jack segment every Friday night, a retired Stompin’ Tom Connors would become an avid Whiskey Jack fan, enjoying the humour and the amazing musicianship. When Stompin’ Tom resumed his career after 13 years away, he called Whiskey Jack and invited them to join him in the studio to record his acclaimed album,  “Dr. Stompin’ Tom… Eh?”.  These two Canadian musical institutions would continue to perform and record often together until Tom’s death in 2014.  Those years with Stompin’ Tom were the seeds that blossomed into the show they tour with today,
Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom.

Love, Loss & What I Wore – Fundraiser for Queens Manor @ Astor Theatre
Oct 4 @ 7:30 pm

Love, Loss and What I Wore follows fragmented stories about the nostalgic power of women’s clothing. A cast of five women sit on stools and tell funny, wistful and universal memories about their families and loved ones through the prism of their closets. The through line is narrated by Gingy, a wise older woman who reminisces about what she wore at milestones in her life—complete with sketches of the styles. Like a long heart-to-heart with your best friend over coffee, the conversation meanders from a bittersweet story of a stepmother wearing the same style bathrobe as her late mother to a couple’s musings of what they wore on their wedding day, to a rant about loathing the need to carry a purse. With odes to black clothing, cowboy boots and outfits that makes mothers cringe, Love, Loss and What I Wore is unabashedly girly—in a good way.

Admission by donation at the door. All proceeds to be donated to the Queens Manor for Special Care.

DEREK EDWARDS – ” So Here’s The Thing…” @ Astor Theatre
Oct 30 @ 7:30 pm

DEREK EDWARDS – ” So Here’s The Thing…”

COMING TO SELECT ATLANTIC CANADIAN THEATRES

Tickets On Sale Friday, June 14th!!

“So Here’s the Thing …” – A breath of fresh air, finely honed and relentlessly funny! Take a break from the world and settle in for a seamless glide over life’s troubled waters. Like the canoeist seated deftly atop his life jacket, with whiskey and pot cookies sealed in airtight containers, Derek Edwards has left little to chance in this polished comedic adventure.

They say, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” And like in a Hollywood movie when the fleeing hero has to jump off a cliff into a waterfall, and the bad guys say, “Nobody could have survived THAT,” then they cut back to a single hand reaching out of the rushing water, finding purchase on a floating log. Derek
is like that Sodden Log! An island of stability amidst the frenzy. An oft saturated and not entirely stable respite from life’s turmoil.

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee
for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Clearly the critics agree:

“5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” -Winnipeg Free Press;

4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist;

“…still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun;

“Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” -Charlottetown Guardian;

“Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun;

“Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight;

“the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald;

“the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.

“So Here’s the Thing …” – Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show, …a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian.

Reserved seating tickets for Derek Edwards -“So Here’s the Thing …” are $49.00(depending on local facility fees; tax incl., handling charges may apply), go on sale Friday, June 14th, and are available from the box offices listed below. Showtime is 7:30pm. For more info, pics & comedy clips,
