Big Franco-Ontarian Comedy Night

Franco-Ontarian comedy is a hot trend these days as many up-and-coming stand-up comics and improv artists are making their mark. La Slague will showcase several of these rising stars in an exciting festival-style event spread across various performance spaces within the Place des Arts building. Jonathan Dion and Evelyne Roy-Molgat, both from the Ottawa area, are first on the roster and many more will be joining them.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
