Keara Killam is having a fund raising event to raise money in honour and memory of her 4 year old son Grady, who died last year from a long and hard battle with leukemia. It is important to Keara to help bring awareness to Childhood Cancer and help fund research so no other children suffer like her son Grady did and lose their lives to cancer. Keara works together with the Michael Cuccione Foundation and 100% of the money that we raise goes to Pediatric Cancer Research. This will be Keara's first event in honour of her son Grady.
The event is called Giggles For Grady. It will be held at the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody on Friday, May 22. There are three comedians doing the show as well as a silent auction and light food and wine.
Tickets $40(with purchase guests will receive a complimentary skoah target session facial worth $55 at the venue)
For tickets online:
Ross Dauk : Ross Dauk is a hilarious comedian and a good man. He loves comedy and if you don't, he will make you love it (in a respectful and totally not intrusive or creepy way).
Based out of Vancouver, Ross hosts a weekly stand-up show called Jokes Please! which has been called one of the best live shows in Vancouver. In February 2015 Ross makes his second appearance at the Northwest Comedy Festival, this time opening for Todd Glass.
Touring across Canada, Ross has developed an original, passionate style that is honest, crowd-pleasing and memorable.
Jane Stanton: Jane Stanton has been called “a fiery ball of hilarious energy” and watching her perform has been likened to “having a late night conversation with your best friend” if your best friend is one of the funniest people you know and likes mayonnaise.
She has won over a lot of new “best friends” in 2006 when she was voted “Vancouver’s Funniest Female”. Since then she’s been in high demand with performances at Toronto and Montreal’s Just For Laugh’s Festival, Halifax Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, the Global Comedyfest, the International Seattle Comedy Competition, CBC Radio "So you think you’re Funny", CBC’s "The Debaters", XM Satelite Radio and the Shore 104 FM "Comedy Kicks". Jane was also on two hugely popular web series, The Staff Room and The Acting Class as well as a frequent guest host on City TV The List. This fiery red head has built a strong fan base, which will hopefully get her a lot of free mayo on the side for the extremely talented Jane Stanton.
Darcy Michael: Widely considered to be one of Canada’s fastest rising stars with his signature approach of high-energy yet laid-back style, Darcy Michael’s stand up delivers jam-packed comedy to an equally energized audience.
Darcy Michael stars in CTV’s Spun Out alongside Dave Foley. Pegged by the Montreal Gazette as one of their favourites at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, Darcy has been nominated twice for a Canadian Comedy Award. His edgy but personable approach has won him numerous appearances at the Just for Laughs Festival, Global Comedy Festival, Comedy Network’s Match Game, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and regular appearances on CBC Radio’s ‘The Debaters.‘
Darcy most recently opened for Russell Peters at Rogers Arena in Vancouver after becoming a finalist in the national XM Top Comic Competition. In late 2014 he was chosen after an international search by NBC as a finalist for the NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity show, which took place in Los Angeles.
Other exciting projects on the horizon for Darcy includes the upcoming films “Rapturepalooza”, a hilarious comedy starring Craig Robinson, and the sequel to the Christmas classic “A Christmas Story.” Darcy has appeared in many television series and movies including “Gay Dude”, “Lloyd the Conqueror”, “End Game”, “Dairy of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules”,“Life Unexpected”, “The Assistants”, “Reaper” and “Numb.”
The comedian/actor currently resides in Ladner, BC, with Jeremy, his husband of 10 years and their teenage daughter. If Darcy isn’t on stage or filming, he can probably be found tending to his garden….where he grows “vegetables.”
