Craig to be a guest at the Island Fringe Festival

Startup Zone, 31 Queen Street , Charlottetown

Presented as part of the 2017 PEI Fringe Festival:

Presented in a talk show style format, "What's So Funny About...?" pairs a group of comedians with guests from unique fields or careers and tries to find out... what's so funny about it! Guests could be anything, from scientists, musicians, or even professional wrestlers! The whole thing is produced and hosted by Sam MacDonald, 2017 winner of PEI's Funniest Person presented by James Mullinger's Comedy Bootcamp and Co-hosted by the Popalopalots' very own Dylan Miller. Come have a chuckle, or even a titter, and maybe even learn a thing or two!
