Returning as our Emcee, Thunder Bay's 2018 Best Comedian, Chris Holland. Opening the show is the Pass Lake Princess - Featuring Tommie Thompson
The Pass Lake Princess is a past Thunder Bay Comic Idol Winner. She has been making people laugh for several years in Thunder Bay. She's a straight shooter who likes to tell it like it is with a hilarious twist! Good spirited, good hearted and always fun.
Although currently living and working in Toronto, Tommie Thompson’s formative years were spent growing up in Red Rock. With more than 20 year’s of stand up experience Tommie has a unique take on small town vs. big city living that is smart, topical, personal and so very funny.
We are happy to be bringing Tommie back home to perform!
