Laugh Out Loud (LOL) Sudbury Comedy Festival is excited to announce André-Philippe Gagnon performing live in Timmins on Saturday, Feb. 10. André-Philippe Gagnon will perform at the Timmins High and Vocational School at 7:30 p.m.

In 1985, André-Philippe Gagnon first acquired his international reputation, appearing at the prestigious Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal with an incredible act – impersonating with accuracy every artist of the song “We Are The World”, the famed song written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and recorded by United Support of Artists (USA) for Africa. Thanks to the success of his performance at Just for Laughs, Gagnon was invited to present his version of “We Are the World” on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The after-effects of this televised performance were immediate and the rest is history!

Some of Gagnon’s most hilarious impressions include Ray Charles, Alice Cooper, Susan Boyle, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Bono and so many more!

This show will be presented in majority English with limited French language content.

Tickets will cost $59.50 (HST included).
