June 16, 2018


3 pm

Learn premises, punchlines, and the business side of ‘Show Business’ from Newfoundland stand-up veteran, and past festival headliner, Stephen Coombs!
Since making his stage debut at the 2008 Newfoundland Screech Comedy Festival, Steve has toured with Yuk Yuk’s and entertained audiences from Newfoundland to Toronto. His comedy has been featured nationally on CBC Television, Radio and XM Satellite Radio. Featured as a CBC Gala performer at the 2011 & 2013 St. John’s Comedy Festivals, Steve was recently selected to represent Newfoundland in the SiriusXM Top Comic Gala at Toronto’s prestigious JFL42 Comedy Festival and awarded an opening spot for Russell Peters on the Canadian Leg of his Almost Famous World Tour. Cited as ‘One to Watch’ in Downhome magazine’s ‘New Faces of Comedy’ cover feature, he is rapidly becoming one of Newfoundland’s next best untapped natural resources to benefit mainland Canada.
