Michael Liftshitz, 10 years ago, stepped on a comedy stage for the first time. What started as a lost bet over a souvlaki dinner grew as Michael added speaking and writing to not only enlighten people as to what people with disabilities could accomplish, but to also inspire others to live life to the fullest…regardless of their limitations…because after all, as Michael says, “We all face challenges…mine just get me better parking spots!”. While there is still plenty of work to do, 10 years seems like a milestone to celebrate, so Michael is celebrating the only way he knows how…with comedy.
The evening will start with the lovely and talented Jazzfest/CityFolk/NAC Musician Danielle Allard performing for you while you enjoy drinks & dinner. (Food & drink are not included in your ticket purchase.) The comedians will then take over with opening acts Sean Carson (host of Off The Rails Comedy), Megan Honey and Kyle Brownrigg, before Michael closes the evening with a comedic look at the last 10 years and living life with a disability. The show will be hosted by Boom 99.7’s own Dylan Black.
$5 from every ticket sold will go to Ability First Ottawa, a local charitable organization that provides comprehensive services and support to individuals (with or without developmental disabilities) and their families.
Early bird tickets are $10 (+ fees) through December 31, 2015, after which online tickets are $15 (+ fees) until 4PM day of the show. If seats are still available, tickets are $20 at the door.
