Laugh Local Comedy Kick-Off
A hilarious launch event for 99.3 County FM’s annual Radiothon
Comedy Country – The County’s Summer Comedy Series – kicks off its 8th season of laughs in PEC at The Regent Theatre with a spotlight on incredible local comedy talent. What a fantastic way to launch Radiothon 2022! Come on out and join on-air hosts, staff, volunteers along with some of the region’s finest comedians as we kick-off the fundraising effort to support 99.3 County FM, Prince Edward County’s community radio station. You’re invited – to share a much-needed laugh back in the comfy confines of The Regent Theatre – the crown jewel of entertainment in The County.
And just look at this lineup!

The popularity of his YouTube videos Welcome to Belleville and Buys Houses have made comedian Kyle Woolven a hometown hero (his words, not yours). And now he’s bringing those heroics to the stage with an action-packed performance of stand-up, sketch, musical comedy and more. For this Comedy Country Kick-off he’s giving us a preview of his upcoming live show Welcome to Belleville! Live!

Short Attention Spa
The County’s own improv duo of Lenny Epstein and Gavin North bring you the WORLD PREMIERE SCREENING of their documentary film Short Attention Spa is Tall Attention Spa. In 2022 Lenny and Gavin began the giant puppet project Tall Attention Spa with The Department of Illumination to match their larger than life improvised comedy. In this hilarious doc, we follow the creators and collaborators as they bring their comedy to new heights.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the creators – and of course, a little extra large live comedy.
