Canadian humourist, storyteller, musician and playwright LORNE ELLIOTT is bringing “THE UPSIDE OF THE DOWNTURN”, his show of comedy and music theatre to the Quadra Community Centre on Friday, November 2, 2012 at 8:00 PM.

Lorne Elliott’s concert performance is a selection of his current monologues and songs dealing with life experience. Creating new stage material about having to redefine priorities in view of life events is a welcome challenge to this writer and stage performer who enjoys shaking the perceived wisdom of the world around him. His one-man show concert presentation is delightfully foolish, witty and thought-provoking. Combining dry humour with musical parodies and skits, Lorne Elliott is a shrewd observer of the human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Elliott’s funny is family friendly. " A solid stand-up with a squeaky-clean set.” Boston Globe

Advance tickets for Lorne Elliott’s performance on Quadra are $17 ($20 at the door) and are available at the Music Plant in Campbell River, and on Quadra at Hummingbird Office and Art Supply in Quathiaski Cove and at Works of H’Art in Heriot Bay.
