‘Nut-case’ brings humour to ACT

Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council brings in one-man comedic-musical performance

Comedy/musical act in the ACT.

Canada’s Favourite “nut-case” Lorne Elliott will take his audience on a humorous journey at The ACT in Maple Ridge, March 31.

The one-man comedic-music performance is presented by the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council.

Elliott, born in Canada, is a keen spectator of life situations and has a unique and wacky way of sharing his observations through humorous storytelling.

He began performing in 1974 as a folk musician on the East Coast of Canada. At the same time, he was writing fiction as well as songs, monologues and one-liners.

Elliot has taken his one-man show on the road, performing in theatres, universities and clubs from Newfoundland to New York City, from Los Angeles to Australia and points in between.

He has opened concerts for Rodney Dangerfield in New York City and Jay Leno in Montreal and made regular appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival since it started in 1986. Each time his segments were selected for TV Specials.

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council, with more than 40 years of community service, works to build strong arts and culture in the region and provide excellence in artistic presentations, programs and exhibits, community engagement, and customer and member services.

The Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council is a not-for-profit, volunteer supported society dedicated to “Bringing Arts to the Heart of our Community.”

Lorne Elliot plays in the Studio Theatre at The ACT (11944 Haney Place, Maple Ridge) on March 31, 8:30 p.m.  Visit the actmapleridge.org or call 604-476-2787 for tickets.
