Globe-trotting comedian Dez Reed gives audience members’ guts a shake in places they didn’t know existed during his11th annual Great Plains Comedy Festival. An entire week of hilarious stand-up includes former hockey player Kelly Taylor, who identifies himself as Saskatchewan’s second-best export after wheat. Rob Pue shows off the razor-sharp, quick-witted style that earned him a role on MTV's Punk'd and a first-place finish in the 23rd San Francisco International Stand Up Comedy Competition in 2003. Meanwhile, Tommy Savitt's relentlessly wry self-deprecation highlights his personal shortcomings to rustle up chortles. Former Seinfeld writer Keith Barany brings his observational acumen and abrasive demeanour to rib-tickling sets, and Leland Klassen rounds out the festival with profanity-free comedy suitable for sensitive audiences and members of the Mr. Clean family.
