ZOOFEST - OFF/JFL - I saw 3 great comics!

This past Thursday, a clear cool night in Montreal, I lined up on Sainte-Catherine Street East @ The Sainte-Catherine Theatre to experience the madness of 3 great comics!

First, it was ORNY ADAMS who burst on the scene with his outrage at the madness of life on earth! We laughed from beginning to end at his wit and discouragement facing aging for example, having a family, even the daring of young people to have hope for a great future! It's not going to happen, his expressive eyes reminded us! Then there is the loss of testosterone, the DMV issues, and WOMEN!!!!
The show is on every night until the 25th.

RACHEL FEINSTEIN was preceded by GUIDO COCOMELLO who will participate in the Homegrown Comics Competition. She has such an uncanny way of mimicking the characters in her stories that just seeing the way she opens and closes her eyes or twists her lips or shakes her hands, made me crack up! She retells the woes of growing up with her judgmental nanny who knew everything about whores like they ALL wear purple, and carry luggage, and have jobs where they do all kinds of... She will do a show tonight, the 17th, the 18th and the 25th.

Then I saw KURT BRAUNOHLER, who will perform until the 21rst. He is the deceptive White Man who will tell you the truth as he tries to gain our trust for a mysterious end-game only the very bravest dared to experience. He sweats a lot, a lot. The crux of his humor is where good intentions meet the sledge-hammer of reality, when your best laid plans fall into an abysmal cluster-fuck!
We never did find out what happened to the twenty brave souls who followed him backstage with blindfolds!

You will enjoy the venue, you can have a snack and a cocktail and the comics are real close to the public!
