Comedy Against Cancer – tonight in Pointe Claire Quebec

This is incredibly short notice, I know.  TONIGHT, September 22, 2012 at 9pm at Le Pioneer in Pointe Claire (286 Lakeshore, Pointe Claire)

The show is in association with Team Greggybear

“Greg Hebert was the Senior News Editor at News Talk Radio 580 CFRA in Ottawa from 2003 to 2010. He was diagnosed with Synovial-cell Sarcoma in his jaw in 2009 and after two surgeries, radiation, a bone graft and chemotherapy his cancer was labeled as inoperative and terminal in 2011. No longer able to work in radio because of the damage the surgeries did to his jaw and mouth, Greg began fundraising for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation where he sits on the board of directors in the hopes that he could turn his negative situation into something positive by raising money for treatment and research as well as raising awareness about his rare condition. Cancer directly or indirectly affects 1 in 3 of us at some point in our lives. If you can help or if you would like to talk, this page is a good place to start.”

I’m a last minute substitution for the original headliner, and am very happy to be back to the Pioneer, as I had so much fun there the last time performing with Pumpin Ethyl.

Let’s kick cancer in the banana.





About Ash

Paul Ash is that special kind of person who sees the best in everyone, except himself. His self loathing comedy is peppered with rural charm and big city cynicism. This “muppet king of comedy” has been described as the “encyclopaedia of funny” and has an over ten year relationship with the Festival Just For Laughs, the world’s largest stand-up comedy fest.
