Paws For Laughs Is Back!

If you’re looking for a fun way to support your furry friends, join us for an evening full of laughter! The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth is hosting its third annual Paws For Laughs Comedy Show on April 22.

The show, sponsored by Ren’s Pets, will feature three renowned Canadian comedians who will make you laugh till you cry. Canadian comics Christophe Davidson, Nigel Grinstead and Jeff Leeson, who have performed all across Canada and abroad, will entertain the audience with their hilarious sketches. The in-person fundraiser will be held at the Best Western Arden Park Hotel in Stratford, and the laughs begin at 8 pm. All proceeds from the show will go towards our Stratford centre and the animals in our care.

“We are excited to be holding our Paws For Laughs fundraising event again this year,” stated Nick Burke, Director of Development. “It’s a great way to support the animals in our care. And all you have to do is sit back, laugh, and enjoy the evening.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now for $50 each. This year, corporate tables are available for $300 and include four seats and four drink tickets. Ticket holders will also get to display their company logo and receive social media coverage for their support for the animals.

Nigel Grinstead’s laid-back charm and absurd takes on life have earned him the reputation of being one of the most imaginative comics in Canada. He jumpstarted his career with consecutive victories in high-profile competitions, receiving the Tim Sim’s Encouragement Fund for his win at Cream of Comedy 2013 and placing first in the 2014 Toronto Comedy Brawl. He also took home first place at the Homegrown competition at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival: an annual contest recognizing the strongest upcoming Canadian talent. His most recent victory came in the form of $10,000 at the 2018 Brantford Comedy Festival.
