The debut edition of the show will feature Toronto’s Thomas Calnan, a veteran stand-up performer, along with Windsor’s Scott Gaughan.
Curtis Coleman, winner of the 2019 Windsor Comedy Fest, will be the master of ceremonies.
Event co-organizer Mark Olejniczak said the goal is to give Windsor comedians a local outlet to work on their craft — as well as to be “a part of the growth and positive momentum happening in the Ford City neighbourhood.”
If all goes as planned, Ford City Funnies will be “serving up some fantastic laughs for Windsorites on a monthly basis.”
The show takes place on Aug. 20 at Club 9 Banquet Hall (1457 Drouillard Rd.). Doors open 7 p.m. and the comedy begins 8 p.m.
Advance tickets are $20, available online via fordcityfunnies.eventbrite.com.
Entry at the door is $25, cash only.
