Newmarket, Ontario: It’s been nine years since the Canadian Improv Showcase started their journey in the world of comedy in a small pub in Newmarket. And it’s been nine years of performing and travel that have brought them back to Newmarket to be a part of the Light’n Up Laughter Club this coming Friday January 12th, 2007.


“It’s really exciting to come home” said Creative Director Matthew R. Lawrence. “So much has changed since we left our small town beginnings: we’ve played every major theatre in Toronto and toured the world, worked with big name performers and expanded beyond my wildest dreams. It will be a treat to come home and be a part of this exciting new event.”


The Light’n Up Laughter Club was started by local entrepreneur Jacquie Hermans. It was created as an evening of interactive comedy to bring laughter to the masses and even offer the audience the opportunity to take part in the hilarity.


Every month the Light’n Up Laughter Club offers an improv class from 7:00 to 7:45 pm, followed by a performance at 8 pm by a variety of improv acts. The events have been so successful that they have been moved to the WHEAT KING at 183 Main Street South, Newmarket.


Come out and enjoy this amazing new concept in the world of interactive comedy!
