Montreal comedian Tranna Wintour will perform on August 13 as part of Fredericton Pride 2016.
Montreal comedian Tranna Wintour will headline an evening of comedy at the Crowne Plaza Fredericton August 13 as part this year’s Fredericton Pride celebrations. Wintour will be joined by Halifax comic Chanel Freire, Sussex’s Darren Elmore and Charlottetown’s Brittany Campbell.
Tranna is a pop-culture-obsessed, fashion-hungry comedienne. With her unique brand of humour Tranna has taken the comedy scene by storm. She has performed in many festivals including Just for Laughs, Pride Toronto, Montreal Sketch Fest and performed her one-woman show, TRANTASY, to rave reviews at the Montreal Fringe Festival (2015). This summer Tranna, alongside her co-producer and co-host, Thomas Leblanc, took the Just for Laughs Festival by storm with Sainte Celine: A Dion Cabaret.
The performance is being sponsored by Sussex comedian Darren Elmore and Kennebecasis Valley’s Comedy With Balls, a comedy promotion company run by Didi Lombard Lloyd and comedian Mark Burnet.
“Didi and I are partnering with Sussex comedian Darren Elmore to produce the show,” said Burnet, who will also host the evening’s festivities. “We approached Fredericton Pride to see if they’d like to make our standup comedy show part of their official festival offering and they wholeheartedly obliged.
“Darren is very knowledgeable when it comes to acts outside of New Brunswick,” said Burnet. “He spent years performing in Vancouver, San Fransisco, Seattle and other smaller towns on the west coast. He’s a huge fan of Tranna Wintour and after hearing some of her material, Didi and I were hooked. Luckily Tranna was available for this coming weekend after wrapping up sold out shows during the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal.”
A portion of the proceeds from this event will go back to Fredericton Pride in support of current and future events and programming.
“We’re so proud to be part of Pride this year and hope everyone will come out to the show,” said Burnet. “I know they’ll enjoy themselves.”
