Hotel hilarious

Emcee for the evening and comedian Julien Dionne liked to lean on the gross side of comedy, while trying to locate Quyon on a map.

Gavan’s Hotel was packed and cheerful on Saturday night, when the crowd was treated to not just one or two world-class comedians, but three laugh-riot inducers in a benefit for the local Lions.
Seeing around 160 comedy enthusiasts – and more than a few hecklers – guests enjoyed over an hour of jokes from Absolute Comedy stand-ups, skewering topics from trying to find Quyon on Google Maps to attempting to get in shape.
“Truth. I think comedy should be truthful, but not necessarily factual,” said comedian Julien Dionne. “I try to be as honest as possible onstage.”
While many of the jokes seemed to fall back on the small-town lifestyle, guests seemed hardly offended as they laughed along with the comedians.
With Dionne opening the show and maintaining emcee duties, Josh Williams and Matt Carter soon followed.
