Too Funny Comedy Show
With Ali Hassan, Clifton Cremo & Meg Mackay. Hosted by Shawn Hogan
The Wild Threads Literary Festival is bringing comedy back. The Too Funny comedy show will be hosted again by the PEI Writers’ Guild’s own Shawn Hogan, and feature special guests, including: Clifton Cremo, a Mi’kmaw stand-up comedian hailing from Cape Breton who you may have seen on CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival or heard him on Just For Laughs Originals on Sirius XM. Meg MacKay is a comedian and comedy writer trying her best. As a TV writer, she wrote for Baroness von Sketch and was a staff writer for famed Canadian comedy show This Hour has 22 Minutes. Her album Probably a Witch is available on Howl and Roar Records. As if that isn’t enough, the show will be capped off with a headlining performance by none other than national comedic treasure, Ali Hassan. Ali is the host of CBC’s hit stand-up comedy show Laugh Out Loud, a frequent guest-host of CBC Radio’s national flagship arts and culture show “q”, and for the past six consecutive years has hosted Canada Reads – the annual battle of the books celebrating the best of Canadian literature. He has made numerous appearances at every major comedy festival there is to name, but for one night only will be at The Guild for this year’s Wild Threads.
