Laughs whatever the weather

Leave the gloom of a December night behind and cheer up with the Weather Permitting Comedy Tour

Leave the gloom of a December night behind and cheer up with the Weather Permitting Comedy Tour, that arrives at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4 at the Wicked Spoon.

Driving across Canada, three comics from Toronto have met  a veritable potpourri of weather and picked up a lot of new fans on their Weather Permitting Comedy Tour.

Michelle Christine, Andrew Barr and Michael Flamank have played major clubs and been featured on television.

Christine has appeared on MTV and in the NXNE Festival. Her blend of storytelling is high-energy and personal, and includes stories from working at the police impound.

Barr is a fast-rising Canadian comic known for his eclectic brand of humor and stage persona often described as “so dry it would make for good kindling.”

From snappy one-liners to recounts from his life, Barr explores all avenues of comedy. A featured performer in North By Northeast 2013 and 2014, he has also showcased for Sirius XM and recently brought his comedy to TV, appearing on iChannel and MTV.

Flamank has worked with many of the best stand-up comedians in Canada while hosting and producing his acclaimed show Comical, based in Toronto.

He moved to Toronto from Kamloops to further his stand-up career, and loves heading back west.

He has co-headlined two wildly successful cross-Canada tours and is excited to be back on the road again.

“We all have very different styles – very observational, applying a comedic touch to life,” Flamank says. “It’s a funny quirky show and we’ll empty bellies of both giggles and laughs.”
