Amigos Cantina – Backroom
Tuesday December 11, 2018
Hosted by Dani Albert
Guest: Lori Ferguson Ford
**Please join us after the workshop at The Comedy Grid open mic, hosted by Dani Albert, and Lori Ferguson Ford will also be headlinging the show!
Are you a woman, female identifying or genderqueer individual? Are you interested in trying stand-up comedy? Are you looking for tips on getting started? Maybe you’re just interested in writing rather than performing! Join us on December 11, 2018 for our next Comedy Writing Workshop for Women! We will gather for 60 to 90 minutes each month. This will allow women from all walks of life to build a sense of community and feel empowered when entering the world of comedy! Whether this is your first time or your 100th time, please join us!
This is a monthly event, where you can hear tips on writing comedy, starting out in stand-up and learn about the comedy scene in Saskatoon. You will also have the opportunity to work on your own material, in a safe, friendly round-table atmosphere with other women. We will work on material; help one another out by listening to other perspectives and work-shopping different ideas. Don’t worry if you do not yet have any material or jokes written. That’s what this event is here for.
Each month we will also have a professional comedian come in to chat with the group, to offer stories and advice. The guest comedian will also be able to take a few questions, so you can hear from an expert, what you’ve always wanted to know about stand-up comedy. Our guest for December is the hilarious and fabulous Lori Ferguson Ford!
Lori Ferguson Ford is a 30 year comedy veteran. You may have seen her on CBC, CTV and the Comedy Network. She will have you roaring with laughter!
There is no admission fee for this event. There will be a tip jar at the end, where you can pay what you like. Food and drinks will be available for order through Amigos Cantina. This event is only for women, female identifying and genderqueer, non-binary individuals. Sorry men, you’ll have to sit this one out.
