Saskatchewan born comic Brent Butt is appearing at the Casino Regina Show Lounge tonight and Saturday night (laughs at 8 p.m., tickets $30 and $35). The tour is subtitled the “Almost a Movie Star”. That’s a reference to a feature film written and produced by Butt that debuted at the Whistler Film Fest in December.
The film was shot in B.C. and is called No Clue. It’s a comedic homage to film noir with Butt playing the role of a klutz who tries to pass himself off as hard-boiled dick to impress a dame played by Amy Smart. Here’s the trailer:
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
