For December’s Yuk Yuk’s event, we are proud to welcome our first international comedian to our stage. Originally from Michael Harrison now calls New York City his home, where he keeps himself busy navigating the American comedy circuit, recently headlining the infamous Dangerfield’s in NYC – the World’s Longest Running Comedy Club. He’ll be joined by up & coming jokester Brett Forte from Calgary, AB – who was recently named 2016’s Top New Comic by Yuk Yuk’s Calgary, plus your host with the jokes from the Mountain Culture Group Mitchell Scott.

New York City, NY

Utilizing a clever, honest, and outrageous style, Michael Harrison is comfortable in any environment. Whether performing at a college, corporate meeting, private party, or a bar, he always delivers a hysterical comedy show that keep his audiences wanting more.

Michael’s natural talent and infectious energy has supplied him with a strong following all over North America. He has earned glowing reviews for his festival appearances in New York, Las Vegas, Sudbury and Calgary. Michael came in 1st place at the Hamilton Great Canadian Laugh Off and was featured in his own national comedy special on the Comedy Network!

Besides touring extensively, Michael has also found time to develop a solid acting resume with appearances on NBC’s “The Bridge”, “Queer as Folk”, the TBS movie “The Jazzman”, and a co-hosting spot on “E-West”.

Charming, likeable, and laugh out loud funny, Michael Harrison is one act you don’t want to miss!

Brett was born in ’92 but we’re pretty sure he grew up in the 80’s. He’s constantly embarrassed by his generation… and thinks you should be too. For Brett, frustration leads to comedy. If something rubs him the wrong way, you’ll be sure to get a laugh out of it. Brett was just awarded as 2016’s Top New Comic by Yuk Yuk’s Calgary.
