Come out for a huge night of laughs with 100% of ticket sales going toward Lungs for Tawnee.
This hilarious evening of comedy will be hosted by the always entertaining Bonnie Esson, with a special feature performance from Joey Commisso. Bonnie Esson has razor-sharp wit combined with a self-deprecating style that endears her to any crowd. Recently back from performing in BC's Funniest New Female Comedy Contest at Vancouver's House of Comedy, Bonnie is ready to perform for the hometown crowd. Bonnie's clever and hilarious insights into dating and love and her propensity to “overshare” make her a must-see. With a unique perspective and off-beat style, Joey Commisso is a great comedy experience for people from all walks of life. Covering a wide range of topics, Joey has performed comedy all over Canada, and the U.S.A and has been part of the Comedy scene in Europe performing in Paris. He’s been nominated for a Vancouver comedy award and performed at the JFL Vancouver festival and Standup NBC.

Tawnee Brunet is a 39-year-old mom of a three-year-old little boy in Kelowna/Lake Country. She was recently diagnosed with a severe cystic lung disease called LAM. Since her diagnosis, in March 2022 she had to leave her job to look after her health. She requires a double lung transplant asap. A requirement for new lungs is to show my transplant team that she has the financial means to remain in the Vancouver area with my caretaker (s) for 3-6 months post-op. If she doesn't have the financial means, she will not be placed on the list. 100% of ticket sales will go toward helping Tawnee with this ordeal.
Kelowna is situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded tm̓xʷúlaʔxʷ (land) of the syilx/Okanagan people who have resided here since time immemorial
