An Online Comedy Cabaret with
Suitcase in Point & Friends
On December 20th at 8pm, Suitcase in Point and friends bring an all-original holiday comedy show to – THE INTERNET! (You know, that new club in town?)
Inspired by our traditional live shows of the past, the undeniable present and a gleaming eye for the future, Suitcase in Point and special guests hope to bring you just the right supply of smiles (and hopefully a feverish amount of hilarity) to help us come together while (still!) apart.
In the true spirit of the holidays, our friends at The Merchant Ale House (who have graciously housed our annual holiday cabarets since 2007), have brewed up a something special for you to enjoy during the live show in the comfort of your home.
The live broadcast is pay-what-you-can (including $0), and donations received during the broadcast will help support Suitcase in Point’s artists and original programming.

NOTE: Deadline to order Merchant Ale House packages is Thursday 17 December and they ARE ONLY AVAILABLE TO NIAGARA REGION RESIDENTS.
Laugh Together Comedy Series
Over the next four months, Suitcase in Point hopes to offer a little pandemic comedy relief to audiences and participants with a digital comedy series to get us through these strange new times.
“Comedy is storytelling, it helps us process grief and it unifies us. Just like all art does. Comedy is art, and it’s time it got the respect it deserves.” –Jill Andrew, MPP Toronto
We, like many arts organizations locally and nationally, are in an exciting and necessary transitional moment. It is integral that we prioritize community, equity and diversity in our programs. This initiative is a way forward, taking tangible steps to reach more of our community. We aim to truly be a platform for all local artists and audiences and recognize our need to reach further to our BIPOC and 2SLGBTQ neighbours, communities and friends. We hope this is one meaningful and collaborative way forward.
Laughing Together Comedy Series (working title), will feature sketch shows, digital comedy shorts, an online comedy workshop series and more!
The full series to be announced in December.
Let’s laugh together people!
Laughing Together has been funded in part by The City of St. Catharines Arts and Culture Community Revitalization Program. Thank you St. C!
