Steam Whistle Comedy Stampede

Sponsored by Steam Whistle, hosted by Jeremy Furlong and featuring a stunning lineup of the best headlining comedians in Canada!

$20 buckets of Steam Whistle all night!

Come join us for three nights of the best comedy in Calgary, with a different headliner each night. The laughs will be non-stop as host Jeremy Furlong guides you through three funny-filled evenings of world class comedy from award winning comedians!

Thursday Scott Ness / Friday Pete Zedlacher / Saturday Chris Gordon

Thursday – Scott Ness

Growing up in a single parent home, poverty stricken, and living meal to meal is the exact opposite of Todd Ness’ upbringing. From the everyday struggles of living in suburbia, to the stress of constant support from family and friends, Todd has become an expert at inventing things to complain about. He has honed his comedic skills through years of being a class clown, disobeying teachers and training his upper body.

This combination of sharp whit, athletic endurance, and ability to relate to other middle class white people has enabled Todd to excel in the world of stand up comedy; earning notable credits, such as winning the 2014 Yuk Yuks Chase Your Butterfly Contest. Even though he started performing in 2009, Todd is still a fresh face on the comedy scene, especially since his prepubescent acne went away. If you enjoy having a good time, come out and experience Todd Ness first hand. If laughing hysterically with/at Todd all night doesn’t make you feel good, knowing you’re supporting his dream of moving out of his parents’ house certainly will.

Todd has performed on the YYC Comedy Festival and can be heard on CBC’s Laugh Out Loud on CBC Radio.

Friday – Pete Zedlacher

Born and raised in the northern Ontario town of Wawa, Pete moved to New York City after graduation to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. The intensive acting program helped him infuse a theatrical element into his act. Working exclusively in theatre around New York, he began performing at the famed William Redfield Theater in an Off-Broadway Production. Following this successful run, Pete found his way back to his homeland.

Landing in Toronto, he threw himself into the stand-up comedy circuit with much success and has quickly become one of the top headlining comics in the country as evidenced by his 2006 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Male Stand-up. Touring Canada from coast to coast Pete is a fan favourite within both the alternative and mainstream comedy club scene. He has appeared on his own one-hour episode of Comedy NOW! for CTV/The Comedy Network, which recently in repeats received the 2nd highest ratings in the show’s history.

Pete is a two-time Gemini Award nominee for his recent television performances at Just For Laughs and CBC’s The Halifax Comedy Festival.

Pete has made numerous film television appearances, including Rookie Blue, CBC’s The Sean Cullen Show, Little Mosque On The Prairie, Puppets Who Kill, CTV’s Sue Thomas F.B.Eye, and Degrassi: The Next Generation. His film credits include American Pie Presents: “The Naked Mile”, and George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead.

Saturday – Chris Gordon

There is no other comedian today who is providing such a unique, original and innovative approach to comedy and audience interaction as Chris Gordon. In his first year of comedy Chris hit the airwaves nationally, as he was selected as the “#1 Pick in the Country” on CBC’s “So You Think You’re Funny?” Chris Gordon’s originality continues to make an impact: from his break out performances at the Just For Laughs Festivals in Montreal and Toronto; the Seattle International Comedy Competition; Vancouver’s NorthWest Comedy Festival; being featured in the Toronto showcase of NBC’s Last Comic Standing; and at The Hot Tub show in Los Angeles; his appeal is undeniable.

Chris played Contrell on Season 3 of the hit AMC western Hell On Wheels. You may also recognize him from appearing nation wide in a Sports Select Lottery, or Coors Light Beer commercial or as the spokesman for the viral Youtube “Muzooka” campaign. Chris has trained and performed in Los Angeles at the prestigious Upright Citizens Brigade, the Groundlings, the Improv Olympic, as well as the world famous Comedy Store; institutions whose alumni include Will Farrell, Conan O’Brien and Jim Carey to name a few.

Chris’ style of comedy has been described as “very unusual (as usual) and very funny… it’s what really sets him apart from the pack”. He is seen as clean, current, hip, inventive, and edgy, which gives him an improvisational feel and a strong connection with the crowd. Offering fresh perspectives woven seamlessly with absurd observations, Chris always delivers a dynamic interactive experience that is hilarious and unforgettable.
