“This man is funny and Canadian, man what a great combo!” – Phil Hartman


Do you love to laugh? We do, and that's why we're back for our eighth year of mirthful movies.

On February 29th, 2020 join us at The Park Theatre for the 8th year of the Canadian International Comedy Film Festival.

Returning this year is the one and only Big Daddy Tazz, along with Shärt Trivia, Plinko, and the always lucrative Wheel of Shärt.

The evening starts off with a cocktail reception at 6:30pm with the Gala Event beginning at 7:30pm. Watch the hilarious comedy film from around the world and see who will win the coveted Select, Shorty, Rom Com, and People's Choice awards.

So put on your laughing shoes and your stretchy pants and have what some have called " ... the most fun you can have in Winnipeg on a Saturday evening for a reasonable price ..." You can't buy that kind of an endorsement!

It was high school that Big Daddy Tazz realized his natural ability to make people laugh.

After falling on his face, his teacher asked what he was trying to prove. Tazz quickly answered, "Gravity!" Laughter erupted, and thus the saga began.

Having performed a wide variety of shows stretching from a client's 101st birthday to a biker initiation makes Tazz one of the most sought-after comedians working today. Tazz is able to do what he loves both on and off stage, which is to make people laugh! His off-the-cuff style brings the audience together, making them feel like they are part of his family, sitting around the kitchen table playing crib.

Whole-heartedly believing that KIDS COME FIRST!, Big Daddy Tazz gladly dedicates his time to make fundraisers an event second to none. Wanting to draw attention to the Children's Wish Foundation, Tazz lived on the roof of a Saskatoon pub for 14 of the hottest days on record! Tazz entertained from his high-rise comedy stage, and his antics helped draw national media attention for the function. And even with the heat stroke, sunburn and many, many parking tickets, Tazz reached his goal — the charity received a healthy cheque, and hundreds people got a huge belly laugh!

“Manitoba Veterinarians will be talking about Tazz’s performance for years to come! I’ve planned a few conferences in my career and I’ve never yet seen delegates respond to an entertainer with a standing ovation! Tazz was bang on with his read of the room and he set the mood for an evening of fun – an event planner’s dream!”
