Comedy @ The Registry

featuring Nour Hadidi & Amy Bugg with Nader Mansour

Don’t miss our last hump-day hilarity for the season!

Nader Mansour

Hometown host Nader Mansour offers himself up as comedy fodder with his original take on the middle east and growing up as a Christian Arab.

Amy Bugg

Amy Bugg is a stand-up comic with a penchant for inactivity, mild-mannered jokes about pizza, and dogs who look like people. You’re likely to find her featured on comedy stages across the country or at the back of a rural Alberta bar practicing her very questionable karaoke skills.
You’ll remember Amy Bugg’s deadpan delivery from festivals in Calgary, Vancouver and Boston, or from CBC’s “Grown-ups Read Things They Wrote as Kids”. Your mom might have also read her short story in Canadian Living.  

Nour Hadidi

Nour Hadidi is standup comic and writer. She has appeared at Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, and CBC’s The Debaters. Last year she filmed a half hour comedy special for Comedy Central in the Middle East. Nour has written for CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and Comedy Network’s The Beaverton.

Comedy @ The Registry

featuring Arthur Simeon with Sammy Farid and Mike Wood

Your Wednesdays are better with more hump-day hilarity!

Mike Wood

Mike Wood was born (against his will) in St.Thomas, Ontario. He paid his way through university as a street performer, catching a catapulted cabbage on a spike on his head. Combining two of Canadas primary exports, comedy and natural resources, Mike is now a comedian with a degree in mine engineering.

Mike has just returned to Canada after living for almost a decade in London, England. While living in London, Mike was a regular at plenty of tiny East London comedy rooms nobody can be expected to have heard of. He was also a semi-finalist in the Amused Moose UK New Comedian Of The Year, which is a big deal and you should feel bad about not having heard of it.

In the future, Mike will be trading shards of broken mirror for the physical affections of his fellow climate refugees. For now, Mike’s thoughtful and concise joke-writing is far and away his most marketable skill.

Sammy Farid

Sammy Farid is an Egyptian born Canadian comedian and actor. He speaks about growing up as a young immigrant trying to adapt to Canadian culture while maintaining his heritage. Sammy starred on CMT’s ‘Almost Genius’ and has produced many of his own comedic shorts, one even went viral racking up 20 million views!

Arthur Simeon

Arthur Simeon is a Ugandan-born Toronto-based comedian who has been performing for a decade all over the world. A truly gifted storyteller, Arthur has been invited to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival six times and appeared on CBC Television, HBO and the Comedy Network. His unique comedic voice and perspective has seen him featured in the Globe & Mail, NOW magazine and the Toronto Star. He’s also a regular on CBC Radio’s Laugh Out Loud and The Debaters.
Arthur is a banana bread connoisseur and lover of slow jams.
