Premium Comedy and Soo Blaster are proud to present one of Canada's most sought after comedians Pete Zedlacher performing live Friday, November 8, 9 p.m. at Soo Blaster 345 Queen St. E. right here in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

Versatile comedian, actor and writer Pete Zedlacher is a 20+ year veteran of the comedy scene and one of the premiere headliners in the country.

Zedlacher – who proudly hails from Wawa, a small mining town in northern Ontario – draws heavily from his Canadian working class roots. A graduate of the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, the intensive acting program helped him infuse a theatrical element into his stand-up. Now based in
Calgary, Zedlacher has a Canadian Comedy Award, six Canadian Comedy Award nominations and two Gemini nominations to his credit. Pete is also the winner of the international comedy competition and was crowned Sirius XMs Top Comic. His six nominations for Best Standup is a standing record at the Canadian Comedy Awards.

Your MC for the evening is fast rising comedian Mike Payne. Mike Payne is a rising star hailing from the Toronto comedy scene. His style can be described as self-deprecating virtue-signalling, or, simply as fat and loud.

Your feature act is Premium Comedy founder Kris Bonaparte. Bonaparte has performed all over Canada and produced shows all over Ontario and his home town of Montreal. He has a unique laid back delivery and a long repertoire of twisted stories.

Soo Blaster is Sault Ste Marie's premier location to eat, drink and play. A large nightclub in the heart of downtown, the space has held dance parties and concerts from such notable acts as Nelly, Aaron Pritchett and comedy duo Kenny vs Spenny. Premium Comedy has been producing fantastic comedy shows at Soo Blaster for over a year, including notable names like Glen Foster, Dom Pare and Derek Seguin.

Join us for an amazing night of live comedy.

The show is at 9 p.m., but come early to eat, play, laugh at Soo Blaster!

Tickets are available at Soo Blaster or online at for only $20. Act now as we expect to sell out.
