DIY Comedy Tour

The DIY Comedy Tour is bringing their Down East Mega-Tour to several locations on PEI this month, making stops at Village Green in Cornwall on April 23, Loyalist Country Inn in Summerside on April 24, Tignish Legion in Tignish on April 25 and Moth Land Brewing in Ellerslie on April 26. The tour showcases the talents of comedians Herbert Henries, Scott Porteous, Mike Payne, and Frank Russo. Showtime is 8 pm. Herbert Henries is the only comedy dangerist in the world. He recently performed in front of the judges of Canada’s Got Talent and was told by Howie Mandel himself that he is “Winnipeg’s greatest comedy export”. Whether it be by his unique stunts, his solid jokes, or his awkward yet endearing personality, Herbert is one of a kind. Scott Porteous has been doing comedy for almost 20 years and has toured countless times. Some of Scott’s credits include The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival, World Series of Comedy, CBC, and Reader’s Digest. Scott has a unique style of storytelling while delivering rapid-fire jokes and one-liners. He can be clean, dark, and perverse combined with subtly and finesse. Mike Payne is a rising star hailing from the Toronto comedy scene. His style can be described as self-deprecating virtue signaling, or, simply as fat and loud. Mike is the winner of the 2018 Etobicoke’s Top Comic competition, was selected to participate in the 2018 Brantford Comedy Festival, and has routinely appeared at comedy venues including Yuk Yuks, Absolute Comedy, Comedy Bar and The Comic Strip (Edmonton). Mike has opened for Martha Chaves, Sandra Battaglini, Christophe Davidson and other prominent Canadian comedians. Mike hosts a long-running weekly show in Riverside (Toronto), called “Comedy Appetizer”. Frank Russo is witty and intelligent with topics ranging from the everyday mundane to deep space and artificial intelligence. Frank has worked with Yuk Yuks (East Coast), Comedy Nest and Crickets Comedy. Festivals include the Sudbury LOL Festival, World Series Of Comedy, and Thunder Bay Comedy Festival.
