Lorne Elliott coming to Century Church Theatre

HILLSBURGH - Lorne Elliott, considered by some as Canada’s funniest man, comes to Century Church Theatre here for one show only on April 30 at 8pm.

Canadian born, Elliott has performed from Newfoundland to New York City, Los Angeles to Australia and points in between. He started performing in 1974 as a folk musician in East Coast Canada. At the same time, he kept writing fiction as well as songs, monologues, and one-liners.

The outcome of such training is a show of comedy and music, totally original, entertaining, uplifting, and foolish enough to make everyone laugh. Along with his unique and wacky performance style, it is the timelessness of his material, joined with keen observations of today’s trends that make Elliott’s work special.

He has performed his one-man show in theatres, universities, and clubs. He opened concerts for Rodney Dangerfield in New York City, and Jay Leno in Montreal. He has made regular appearances at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival since it started in 1986, and each time his segments were selected for TV specials.

In Canada and the U.S. he has appeared on numerous talk shows and variety shows.

Many will probably remember him best for his CBC TV special Madly Off In All Directions.

For ticket information call the box office at 519-855-4586.
