The 84th annual Academy Awards go tonight at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Approximately 2100 kilometres north-east of that site, where most of the biggest names in Hollywood will gather to salute themselves, a motley group of local entertainers will assemble¬†at Artesian on 13th for the February installment of this comedy/variety show hosted by Jayden “He’s no Billy Crystal, that’s for sure” Pfeifer.

Coincidence? Hardly, because the theme of the latter “shew” as Ed Sullivan used to say is none other than the¬†Academy Awards themselves. They’ll be broadcast on a big-screen TV, and the cast will do comedy bits as the statues are doled out.

Doors are at 7:30 p.m., tickets are $10.
