Bridging Post presents Downward Facing Broad
Funny gal Deborah Kimmett with singer Kim Pollard will bring a night of stand up story and song.
Deb riffs on aging, getting the senior discount, how not to get into a fight at Aquafit and what to do when a Rotarian tries to mansplain.
Kimmett is a regular on CBC Debaters, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and is an award-winning storyteller and playwright. This stage show was featured as an hour comedy special on CBC radio and is now a COMEDY CD that has rated 5th on ITUNES comedy albums across Canada.
The evening is a fundraiser for the Tchukudu Women's Training Centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a centre offering training in sewing, basket weaving, micro finance and business skills. Women, who have suffered horrific experiences of violence as a result of the ongoing conflict, come to learn skills so they can generate incomes to feed their families and educate their children.
