Inverness County Center for the Arts is pleased to present renowned Newfoundland comedian and 2021 Juno-nominee Matt Wright with opener Eskasoni’s Clifton Cremo on July 28th at 8:00 p.m. This event is part of Wright’s east coast summer tour for 2021.
“I have been on my couch for two years and I can’t wait to tell jokes in Inverness!,” said Wright.
Originally from Newfoundland and Labrador, Matt Wright is a JUNO Award-nominated Canadian stand-up comedian, writer, actor and director. Matt is known for his sharp, clean, observational comedy about the struggle of being a person and he can transition seamlessly between one liners, storytelling, and silliness. Matt has appeared on two Just for Laughs Galas (Laverne Cox 2017 and Ken Jeong 2018), CBC’s The Debaters, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and the Halifax Comedy Festival. As a television writer, Matt has written for five seasons on This Hour Has 22 Minutes (where he was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Writing) and has also written for Still Standing.
Opening for Matt Wright is Eskasoni’s Clifton Cremo. Cremo is a Mi’kmaw stand-up comedian from Eskasoni First Nation. In just two short years he became a fixture in the Nova Scotia comedy scene through his deft brand of storytelling and wry absurdism. Nothing is off limits, particularly when it concerns family and his First Nations heritage. Whether he’s on stage at a comedy club, a local bar, or even a funeral (seriously), Clifton always manages to bring the laughs.
Tickets for the event are $30 plus service fees, due to COVID-19 concerns, the event will be limited to 50 tickets, you can purchase at www.invernessarts.com/iccaevents.
