Whether on the page or on the stage, Deborah Kimmett is Canada's comedic treasure. Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway) says Kimmett is one of the funniest comics out there. This witty and wise woman has been using humour to open minds and heal hearts for over 42 years. Deborah is a Second City veteran, a regular performer on CBC Radio for 17 years, The Debaters and CBC Television's Winnipeg Comedy Festival just aired her set on CBC TV and Gem. Blues singer Kim Pollard will open and accompany Deborah through her storytelling and song. You will laugh and cry at this fast-paced 90-minute show. Kimmett riffs on how to audition for the nursing home, and how to get along with your neighbours (especially the ones who try to tell you how to parallel park and how not to deal with your Hecklers, even if she's your mom.
