Comedy show coming to Crown Harriston

HARRISTON – After selling out several stops on the first leg of their comedy tour, a “very adult” stand-up tour featuring Darren Frost and Lisa Baker are hitting various venues across Ontario, including the Crown Harriston Cultural Centre. 

Billed as “Beauty and the Beast,” the show featuring Baker and Frost is described as “a double headlining tour starring comedians with a combined 40 years experience and known across the country for their opinionated brand of stand-up comedy.”

Born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Baker started a professional stand-up career on the island, before moving to Alberta while maintaining her “Newfie Princess status,” a press release states.

According to the release, Baker worked with many heaver hitters in comedy, including Rob Schneider, Tom Green and Paul Reiser. She has been featured on CBC’s LOL program and has had multiple appearances on The Debaters. She has also performed at several comedy festivals across Canada, including Just For Laughs Northwest and has self-produced two national tours. She has also just filmed her first TV series, The Canoe Project, and will back in season two as an actor and a writer for the series.

Frost’s style of comedy has been described as having “the quality of a satanic revival meeting” and “among the most daring comedians in Canada” by the Toronto Star.  He recently worked on the Murdoch Mysteries 2018 Halloween special, Pay The Ghost with Nicolas Cage and in season two of the television show Mr. D on CBC.  

Frost has also acted in Hollywood films like Hairspray, Assault On Precinct 13 and Fever Pitch and appeared in over 50 commercials and voiced characters in multiple cartoons.  

He has performed stand up at the Halifax Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival,  St John’s Comedy Festival Gala,  The Ron James Show and CBC Debaters, as well as performing in over 22 shows at  Just For Laughs.

In an email to the Community News, Frost stressed the show features adult humour.

“This is a no holds barred type of comedy show but it is not offensive.  We do adult comedy for adults,” he states.

The duo will appear at the Crown Harriston on April 1. Showtime is 8pm. For tickets go to
