To register and pay, make a donation of $30 per person ($60 per couple) to our team site on the Heart & Stroke website. Our team name is the Miracle Workers. This will add you to the comedy show event list.
Hughie Batherson, on a whim, stepped on a stage for a Juste pour rire (Just For Laughs) amateur competition and walked away the winner despite it being his first time on stage doing stand-up comedy. The next night he performed in front of a sold out crowd of 800 people at the Hubcap Comedy Festival Gala in Moncton, NB. He was quickly invited to join the `Juste pour rire` comedians for parts of their National Tour and has performed in Saskatchewan, Ontario,Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. He does standup in both English and French . Hughie is from North Sydney, NS.
“Hughie has excellent stage presence and was a huge surprise at this year`s festival in Moncton“. – Francois Simard, Vice-President, Just for Laughs
‘’ Hughie is a natural in the art of standup comedy. He has instant comedic presence on stage and grasps very quickly his audience. Through his personal life experiences, he is able to take his crowd on a laugh out loud voyage! His act is not to be missed!’’ – Daniel Leblanc, Artistic Director, Festival acadien de Clare
