COMICAL SPIN- Phil Nichol is one of several comedians that are part of the Snowed In Comedy Tour

Laugh it up with the Snowed In Comedy Tour

It will be an explosive evening of humour at the Memorial Centre Jan. 28 with the Snowed In Comedy Tour.

Phil Nichol, Dan Quinn, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool will be sharing the stage for a night of flat out fun and improvisational antics.

Phil Nichol wears a number of creative hats – he’s an acclaimed actor, an award-winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician. He’s also a natural improviser when he hits the stage, showcasing a knack for noting the “shocking and absurd.”

His talents have also led to performances at festivals around the world, including the Edinborough Fringe Festival, the Glasgow Comedy Festival and England’s famed Glastonbury Festival.

Dan Quinn noticed a penchant for comedy during his post-secondary studies in Edmonton, and it didn’t take long to get noticed.

After a year, he landed the designation of ‘funniest new comic’ in the City.

He soon ventured out to Vancouver to ply his trade and later was invited to do the Canadian competition at the Just for Laughs Comedy festival in Montreal.

Success continued to find him, as he won first place and got his first break into Hollywood.

Since those days, he’s been seen in his own TV special that aired on CTV and The Comedy Network.

Meanwhile, the awards have continued to come his way. Back in 2007, he ventured off to the Hubcap Comedy Festival in Moncton and was chosen ‘Best of The Fest’. These days, Quinn travels regularly across Canada, England and the U.S.
