CARMAN - 

The Carman Legion will host a special comedy night, Saturday June 9 at 8 p.m.
Big Daddy Tazz will present a pair of comedians, Jim McNally and James Mullinger.
He said it’s part of his passion to raise funds and awareness for legions across Canada.
“My goal is to start driving youth to legions,” he said. “A lot of people think legions are for old people.”
Tazz said legions are vibrant places that reflect the committment to freedom made by the veterans of wars.
“Comedy is the ultimate example of free speech,” he said. “We live in one of the most blessed places ever.”
About the comedy:
Jim McNally is a comedian with an irreverent outlook that blends big city wit with small town cheekiness.
His Irish, story-telling roots shine through in his performances which weave observations of the everyday into stories from his own life to highlight the absurdities of the world we live in.
Jim’s spontaneous and engaging style, quick wit, and knack for seeing the outlandish make him a natural, versatile performer who leaves audiences doubled over with laughter and wanting more.
Although Canadian and American audiences have been howling at Jim McNally for over a decade now, he is becoming more and more recognized lately after stellar performances at the Halifax Comedy Festival and on CTV’s “Comedy NOW!”.
In 2005, he was the first comedian to get a standing ovation at Ottawa’s Absolute Comedy and was asked back to headline their first anniversary weekend.
British comedian James Mullinger was one of the hardest working stand ups in the UK as well as the Comedy Editor for GQ Magazine. Since moving to Canada in February 2014 he has appeared on CBC’s The Debaters, been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Solo Show and a Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy Show. He has sold out hundreds of venues across Canada and produced three seasons of his own television series.
Tickets for the show cost $25. Act now because there are limited tickets with rush seating.
