Adam Blank

A life-long comedy fan, Adam decided to "hit reset" at the age of 32, walking away from his day job as a forklift operator to become a stand-up comedian. Today, he's considered one of the funniest comics in Western Canada. He has been invited to appear at both the Grindstone & Edmonton Comedy Festivals, and has performed in comedy clubs all across Canada.

He's been named 'Edmonton's Funniest Person', and has had the opportunity to work with comedy heavyweights Drew Lynch, Bobby Lee, and Tom Green. In 2020, Adam was invited to be part of a Just For Laughs Originals comedy album recording.

Combining his self-deprecating sense of humour with "in the moment" audience interaction, Adam's laid-back, happy-go-lucky stage presence charms audiences of all ages.

Cindy Rivers

Cindy has performed and headlined all over Canada and even the USA. She’s performed at festivals such as, Nextfest, Big Pine Comedy Festival, Grindstone Comedy Festival, LA Comedy Club in Las Vegas, Los Angeles Diversity In comedy Festival by second city, Just for laughs Northwest, and opened for the world renowned Hannah Gadsby.

You can catch her opening for Chelsea Handler this summer. She also opened for Canada’s drag race winner Priyanka on her Taste Test tour. She’s slightly awkward and quirky but all funny.

Opening for Cindy will be Steven Darnell

Steven was a finalist for Jester of the Year before it was cancelled by the pandemic, is the host of Live Laugh Debate! at the Comic Strip, and is Edmonton's 3rd tallest comedian. He's tall, but not that tall.

Bradley Layden

Brad is a family man with a comedy addiction, so you'll either find him with them, or on a stage near you. Combining self-deprecation about his parenting skills with clever observations about the world, Brad can hit you with quick one-liners, or relatable tales from his life. His laid-back charm may leave you open for surprises! A Red Deer Comedian of the Year Nominee, Brad loves to meet new friends and leave them laughing at him.

We can’t wait to see you there! Be sure to grab a few 50/50 tickets on-site!
