Festival Favourites - Saturday, April 9. The 8th annual Icebreakers Comedy Festival takes over the upstairs of Corks Winebar & Eatery with some of the fests favourite comics from previous years. Jeff Paul hosts with the hilarious Adrienne Fish, Marito Lopez and Juno Award nominee, Jarrett Campbell.
With his unmistakable charm, Jeff Paul pushes the boundaries of comedy leaving no topics off limit. Jeff’s quick wit and unrestrained attitude often result in raw, embarrassing stories at his own expense.
Jeff has opened for Louis CK, Gilbert Gottfried, and K.Trevor Wilson, is a Yuk Yuk’s regular, can be seen on CTV Comedy, and was selected for New Faces at JFL42 in Toronto. For 5 years he ran one of Toronto's best weekly shows, Dope N’ Mic Comedy, at the famed Underground Comedy Club. It was also the first 420-friendly show in Just For Laughs history.
In 2014 he founded this very Festival in his hometown of Niagara-on-the-Lake. His debut album “Delightfully Dark” is available through Comedy Records and on all streaming sites.
Marito Lopez is a Latinx comedian, originally from El Salvador, who is one of Canada's top performers. He has made numerous appearances at the famous Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. His explosive stand up has been featured on Kevin Hart's LOL Network, CBC Gem, and MTV Canada. He can also be heard on SiriusXM & CBC Radio. He is one half of The Strictly Beloved & Cute Ass Book Club podcasts.
A firecracker since 2009, always touring Canada with all the major comedy clubs, Marito Lopez is one of the finest headliners Canada has to offer and a breath of fresh air for the future of stand up comedy. Latinx-ellence. Brown is beautiful. All praises to The Most High.

Based in Toronto, Adrienne has recorded four nationally televised showcases and is regularly featured on SiriusXM and CBC Radio. She’s appeared at Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Halifax Comedy Festival, Hubcap Comedy Festival, Atlanta’s Laughing Skull and JFL42. An award-winning comedian, Adrienne earned COCA Comedian of The Year honors in 2019 as the top comedian for Canadian colleges and Universities and was nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards including Breakout Artist of the Year.
Jarrett Campbell is one of the fastest rising talents in Canadian Comedy. His work has been featured on MTV, Comedy Network, CTV, Sirius XM and CBC. From New York to Vancouver, Jarrett has been on stages all across North America and continues to tour regularly with Yuk Yuk’s. He has opened for the likes of Theo Von, Andrew Schulz, Mark Normand, Andrew Santino, and many more.
