Joey Elias, local comedian supporting Sun Youth at The Comedy Nest
Joey Elias – As seen on CBC’s Just For Laughs and The Comedy Network’s MatchGame, not to mention in blockbuster movies like The Day After Tomorrow, Montreal comedian Joey Elias lands in the Comedy Nest next weekend to record a brand new comedy album over three hilarious nights! From fashion to family, hospitals to hair salons, he finds comedy in every corner of life.
For these three shows, Joey will be supporting a cause that is very dear to him: Sun Youth Organization. This isn’t the first time he will be associated with the Montreal charity. Over the years with the Comedy Nest, he’s been raising funds and food for Sun Youth, as well as helping with the organization’s annual Holiday Food Drive and personally collecting food and money.
Joey has also been Sun Youth’s Annual Mordy Gordon Golf Tournament’s MC for over a decade, only missing one year for professional reasons. “It was about 12 or 13 years ago”, he recalls. “Ernie Butler (of the Comedy Nest) wasn’t feeling well, called me to host the Golf Tournament and have been there since.”
Sun Youth isn’t the only cause he’s supporting. He is also deeply involved with Diabetes Research , On Our Own (O3), a local charity, as well as other grassroots organizations. It has always been important for him to support causes such as Sun Youth. ” I know so many people that have used Sun Youth’s services over the years”, he says”. “I also believe it is important to support local – we need to take care of those in need everywhere, but especially in our own back yard.”
Here’s your chance to see Joey live and be part of history August 30th and 31st and September 1st at the Comedy Nest (2313 Ste Catherine West, Montreal Forum, 3rd Floor, Montreal H3H 1N2) at 8:30 pm and also 10:30 pm on Friday and Saturday.
