If you’ve checked out our Best of Regina nomination ballot you’ll perhaps have noticed we have a Best Regina Comedian category. With his duel gig as host of this comedy variety show and the Talkies series at Central Library Theatre where a cheesy movie of some description is screened and mercilessly mocked, Jayden Pfeifer is definitely a contender.

The final round of voting starts on Sept. 23, so you’ll have to wait until then to see if he made the cut. Meanwhile, Pfeifer kicks off the 2015-16 Red Hot Riot season with a show tonight at the Artesian. The musical guest is Danny Olliver, who played the Regina Folk Festival and also did a Market Under the Stars show in late August.

Also guesting is Joey Tremlay, a veteran playwright, director and theatre performer in Saskatchewan/Canada who was recently hired to head Curtain Razors Theatre Co. following Michele Sereda’s tragic death last February.

Curtain is 8 p.m., and tickets are $15. Find out more on the Artesian website. To close, here’s video of Olliver performing “Speak to You” as part of the Empty Room series at Creative City Centre.
