Comedian Ali Hassan

CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud is coming to PEI for the first time ever to record an episode of its hit comedy show. Join the best comedians PEI has to offer on April 17 at 7:30 pm at Trailside Music Hall and celebrate the Island’s growing comedy scene.

Comedian and producer Tanya Nicolle chased down LOL’s executive producer Lee Pitts, begging CBC to record an episode of its national radio here. “I wouldn’t take no for an answer. Our scene is special. And every comedian on the show has such a unique point of view.”

LOL’s host, Ali Hassan, agrees: “So excited to see all these wonderful comedians under one roof! I did a set at Trailside in 2023 as part of the Wild Threads Literary Festival, and I knew we had to bring a Laugh Out Loud comedy recording to town.” 

Britt Campbell, who runs Rat Tales Comedy Night on Mondays at Baba’s is one of the feature acts. They say, “Island artists often move away to gather skills, and when they return home to showcase their talents it strengthens the community. CBC’s Laugh Out Loud is taking the chance to show off many years of hard work and dedication put in by these artists.”

Be a part of history and join host Ali Hassan, with guests Patrick Ledwell, Tanya Nicolle, Shawn Hogan, Britt Campbell, Taylor Carver and Katherine Cairns for a night of laughter and fun, as CBC Radio records its hit stand-up comedy show.
