We're Back Thursday April 7! Opening Night kicks off the 8th annual Icebreakers Comedy Festival at the rustic Oast House Brewers. Hometown hero Joe Pillitteri headlines with local favourites Marc Sinodinos as MC and opening act Michael Moses!



Marc Sinodinos

As captain of the football team, Marc threw and caught every single touchdown pass on route to a national championship.

At the tender age of 18 and with ice water in his veins, Marc started performing stand up comedy, and during his first set, he pulled Bruce Springsteen on stage, and solidified himself among the greats.

He has been known to exaggerate his achievements.

Former winner of the Toronto Comedy Festival, he brings his experiences of working for the Jehovah’s Witnesses and being a new dad to the stage.

A frequent traveler to America for comedy festivals (participating in 9 different festivals!), Michael is currently living with his ex girlfriend and was sure to get double vaxxed as he's been traveling the world performing just to get out of the house.
