Little Mittens plans comedy show at Rockwater

Raise the Woof, a comedy tour that raises money in support of animal rescue, is coming back to Golden for a show on Oct. 25.

Raise the Woof, a comedy tour that raises money in support of animal rescue, is coming back to Golden for a show on Oct. 25, once again in support of Little Mittens Rescue.

The tour was originally here last December. The lineup this time will feature three comedians and will take place at the Rockwater Grill and Bar. Money raised from ticket sales, as well as the silent auction that will take place during the event, will go towards purchasing materials for the Little Mittens shelter, which co-manager Jamie Crawford says is “totally overcrowded.” Little Mittens is still looking for more silent auction donations. Those who would like to make a donation can contact Little Mittens at 250-939-8085.

The featured comedian goes by the stage name Mr. V. He has performed in comedy clubs for 24 years and this has taken him across Canada and even to the Middle East to perform for the Canadian military. He has a very adaptable routine that touches on many subjects, and has earned high praise from critics for grabbing the audience from the very beginning and not letting go.

Also performing will be Jeremy Furlong and Matt Billon. Billon has been performing for the last 12 years on the Canadian comedy circuit and likes to draw humour from his own experiences, no matter how embarrassing. He has appeared at Montreal’s “Just for Laughs” comedy festival and had his own one-hour special on the Comedy Network.

Furlong is a Strathmore, Alberta native who copes with daily bouts of insecurity and low self-esteem from staggering student loans and the inability to realize his full potential. Able to wow audiences with deeply fried physique and deliciously styled comedy, Furlong delivers humour in unhealthy portions. He has held a lot of hard working jobs and he doesn’t have a problem letting you know how poorly he preformed at each and every one of them.

Tickets are available for $20 in advance and $25 at the door and can be purchased from the Rockwater.
