Austin Lonneberg was born in Calgary Alberta Canada. After enduring years of being made fun of by idiots and loving stand up comedy he thought "Hey I could probably make fun of myself on stage, it seems pretty easy even idiots can do it!" so he did just that. His comedy combines the gracefulness of barely not being a teenager with a boundaryless-ness inherited from his mother to create comedy out of even his most embarrassing experiences.
Be sure to see Austin Lonnenberg live at Bailey's Pub on October 27-28, 2017.
Noor is a Muslim boy born in Calgary and raised in the small farming town of High River.
Much of his comedy is based on being one of the only brown kids growing up in a small Alberta town.
Noor has a unique view of the world and a background in Improv which makes him very spontaneous on stage.
He does stand-up comedy all across Canada and just finished taping his first TV special for CBC “Alberta Comedy Spectacular”.

November 3-4 Doors at 7:00 PM
Show at 8:00 PM
Eric Amber – Storyteller, Street Performer, Comedian, Film Maker, Writer and Anarchist.
Born the son of traveling gypsies Eric Amber spent his early life observing the tricks and scams of the Carnival until his parents gave up the vagabond lifestyle for the boring [but honest] furniture business.
As a teen, Eric discovered improv comedy at the world famous Loose Moose Theatre in Calgary which led him to the life of street performing and play writing in a group known as The 3 Canadians.
Later, Eric and his long time comrade in comedy Derek Flores would form the vaudeville comedy duo Hot Nuts and Popcorn.
After years of performing and traveling across Canada and Australia, Eric moved to Montreal to build and found Theatre Ste-Catherine, where he taught Improvisation to a new generation of artists and comedians.
In 2009, Eric courted controversy in what would become known as the ‘Go Fuck Yourself’ media frenzy, an event that would free him from the theatre business and propel him into film making.
Eric’s 2010 film, I Heart Doomsday, A Sci-Fi love story won several awards in the genre of science fiction and his 2013 film CAFé CAFé, a Romantic Comedy has been a hit at festivals across Canada.
Be sure to see Eric Amber live at Bailey's Pub on November 3-4, 2017.
Sharon Mahoney is an actor, stand-up comic and has been street performing since 1999. Her show is a highly theatrical variety comedy show with two central characters; the passive aggressive ‘Sharon from Canada’ and her more domineering counterpart, ‘Tallulah’. In 2001, she won the Marcus Marconi Press Prize at the Rotterdam International Street Theatre Festival (NL). Sharon continues to receive invitations to perform worldwide, attracting large audiences.
“Audiences love her spontaneity and hilarious audience integration. Sharon appeared at the 18+ Little Creatures Festival Club and Audience were in stitches through her set of high quality original material.”
Brendan Coleman, Artistic Director, Fremantle Arts Festival, Australia

Young, up and coming comedian Mike Lynch started expressing his everyday thoughts and wonders through doing stand-up in the summer of 2012 in his hometown St.John's Newfoundland. 2 years later Mike's potty mouth has been heard in many venues across the east coast and has performed along side of Chris Locke, Brian Aylward and has toured across the province with the one and only "Trixx". He also enjoys bragging about the time Comedy legend Mike Wilmott bought him a beer that one time. Although Mike’s style is meant for a mature audience, he speaks from an immature point of view. He enjoys sharing his struggles of still looking 16, his sex life and his love/hate relationship with downtown. Lynch continues to grow and throw himself on as many stages possible.
Be sure to buy tickets to the show at Bailey's Pub November 24 and 25 and See Mike Lynch live.
