Neil Patrick Harris Gala – July 27-28, Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier LiveEvents July 23, 2015 6402 Just for Laughs presents Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris, who has hosted 10 televised awards shows in the past few years, is truly the king of hosts. Neil has some tricks up his sleeve as he headlines our unparalleled festival-closing galas. Feel like a member of the Hollywood/Broadway elite as the host of The Oscars, The Emmys, and The Tonys plays ringleader to a score of special guests for a variety show that is going to razzle, dazzle, and surprise in a way that only he can! The shows starts at 7:00 pm and 9:45 pm. Hosted By: Neil Patrick Harris Featuring: Bridget Everett She bares it all: Everett’s best known for her burlesque/cabaret act, where she leaves virtually nothing to the imagination. Her tongue-in-cheek, hilariously vulgar approach to cabaret has garnered praise from a variety of news outlets including New York Times and her live shows were such a success that Everett forayed them into a live album entitled Pound It!. She’s got friends in high places: Everett is also known as Amy Schumer’s cohort, good friend, and frequent collaborator on Inside Amy Schumer. Sammy J and Randy They’re sought after: Sammy J and Randy are without question two of the most sought after comics in Australia today. Combining catchy songs with chaotic tomfoolery and outbursts of filth, these two adorable characters have an uncanny knack of charming the pants off everyone they meet. They’re accomplished: In 2010 Sammy J and Randy won Australia’s most coveted comedy award, The Barry, for their one-man/one-puppet show, Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane. Brad Williams He forayed a disability into a successful comedy career: Born with dwarfism, Brad’s ability to make humorous observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race win over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings. He’s been lauded by the best in the biz: Brad’s was once called “Prozac with a head” by Robin Williams, who praised his high energy show. Beardyman He’s the best beatboxer in the game: Beardyman is truly a unique talent, able to create countless sounds with only his voice, including everything from perfect mimicking of sound effects to techno music produced live in real time straight from his mind to the mic. He’s got views: chances are you’ve seen one of Beardyman’s YouTube videos, or perhaps his Ted Talk, both of which have racked up millions upon millions of views putting the astounding live production machine that is Beardyman’s voice on display. Puddles Pity Party He’s popular: With more than 100k fans worldwide on Facebook and over 20 million views on Youtube, Puddles Pity Party is a must-see for both his music and unique comedic hijinks. He’s a winner: Last year, Puddle’s starred in the Olivier Award-winning production of ‘La Soiree’ at the Southbank Centre in London. Ed Alonzo He’s toured with the best: Ed has created illusions for tours of some of the biggest musicians in the world including Britney Spears and Michael Jackson. He’s NPH’s BFF: No joke! Neil Patrick Harris called this American comedian, actor, and magician his “best friend” on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He’s also graced the screen: In addition to being one of the foremost touring magicians in America, Alonzo also has acting chops and has been featured in Saved by the Bell, Full House, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and Men in Black.
