A few festival names

It's not until September 17-27, but I got some names for the upcoming Global Comedy Fest Vancouver. These names were all found on-line, either at the artist's website or at the Ticketmaster site:
  • Pauly Shore will somehow get enough people to show up for him at the Vogue Theatre on Sept. 12
  • Last Comic Standing fifth season winner Jon Reep will be at Lafflines in New West from Sept. 17-19
  • Last Comic Standing second season winner John Heffron will be at Lafflines the following weekend, Sept. 24-26
  • Natasha Leggero will be somewhere in town Sept. 24-26
  • the first Best of the Fest at the Centre on Sept. 25 will be hosted by Tom Arnold
  • the second Best of the Fest on Sept. 26 will be hosted by Red Green
Okay, that's only six names, but it's a start. If you hear any more, do tell. Why don't we start a wish list here in the comments section?

I just realized that two names have, indeed been announced. Carol Burnett will be back to answer any other questions you may have missed last year. She'll be at the Orpheum on Sept. 24. And Jon Lajoie will be at the Vogue on the 25th.

No one interesting so far.
Wish they'd get some UCB up here.

They did last year, didn't they?
