One of our fundraising campaigns for our Tough Mudder Miami team is a night at Rumors… for those who haven’t been to Rumors, it’s Winnipeg’s premier Comedy Bar and Restaurant. The best part you can order any cocktail in the a pitcher… dare I say Pitchers of Paralyzers. We have 250 tickets to sell and they’re going quick. Want to join us? Come find any team member or you can ask Jason for tickets. The show is November 16th @ 1030p.
Winner of Just For Laugh’s 2011 Irwin Barker Homegrown Comic Award and NOW Magazine’s 2011 Best of Toronto Award for Best Male Stand-up, Dave Merheje is making waves as one of the edgiest comics in the country today. Drawing from his Lebanese-Canadian perspective and personal experiences straight from the streets, Merheje is unfettered by political correctness. His “no fear” approach to comedy has gained a loyal following. Pure raging energy, he is electric, aggressive and in-your-face. Nothing is sacred as he fires off on urban life, Middle Eastern politics, Islamic extremists, working in strip clubs, club culture, drugs and masturbation.
2012 has been a memorable year for Merheje. He returns to Just For Laughs this summer where he will be taping a segment for JFL’s and The Comedy Network’s new joint venture, a 13-hour series airing on The Comedy Network this fall. He made his mark at Moncton’s Hubcap Comedy Festival and the Ha!ifax ComedyFest this past spring and in June, completed a six-city Canadian tour with Arthur Simeon’s Legends in the Making. In July, he joined the Gemini Award-winning pop culture series MTV Live as an on-air contributor. He was nominated for a 2012 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Stand-up. He became a finalist in NBC’s Stand-up for Diversity search and was invited to join the 2012 Stand-up for Diversity College Touring Company performing at select colleges and universities in the US this fall.
