“These comics have performed in several major cities, participated at multiple festivals, and have featured on many Yuk Yuk's stages,” says a news release issued by Laugh Local North, a production company launched last fall by Sudbury entrepreneur and comedian, Lesley Lynn.

“Since October 2022 Laugh Local North has been working with businesses along the Highway 17 corridor to develop a stand-up comedy circuit,” the release says. “This collaboration is creating a vibrant scene that will operate year round. The challenge of producing entertainment during the summer months is being met head-on with enthusiastic optimism.”

“Some folks say ‘Good weather kills comedy,’ but I know many of our communities come alive at this time of year,” Lynn says in the release. “Beautiful venues in stunning locations that are offering great hospitality to entertainers and audiences alike? That is a winning combination. I believe these elements combine to offer great opportunities for everyone."

Advanced tickets for these upcoming shows are $25 and may be purchased online or by texting Lesley Lynn at 705-862-2214.
