Bring out your spare funny bones! Lorne Elliott is set to send your giggles “madly off in all directions”.
With his barely tamed afro, his rubbery face and his miniature guitar, the Canadian musical comedian is the master of all that is silly, side-splitting and strange.
Combining dry humour with musical numbers and skits, Elliott is a shrewd observer of the behaviour of the Canadian human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Elliott’s funny is family friendly.
Well known as the host of his own CBC Radio Comedy Series which went on for 11 seasons, Elliott has been performing professionally on stage for more than two decades. His ability to entertain is as keen as his wit.
Lorne has been featured on numerous theatre arts festivals, he is also an award-winning playwright and his plays are regularly produced across Canada. www.lorne-elliott.com
