Join us this Saturday for a night of comedy featuring local Two-Spirit darling Teddy Syrette and Sudbury-based comedian Kevin Shawanda, part of Dream Big: Baawating Arts Festival.

TEDDY SYRETTE (Ozhawa Anung Kwe-Yellow Star Woman) is a 2-Spirit storyteller from Rankin Reservation of Baawaating First Nation. Teddy has traveled to many parts of Turtle Island spreading their legs and gay agenda everywhere. Teddy is a proud uncle of four boys. He has two sisters, and out of the three of them, Teddy is the prettiest. They hate that joke because sometimes it's TRUE. Creator doesn't make any junk, but after they had created Teddy, the human-making machine was covered in glitter. Teddy enjoys pugs, poetry and promiscuity.

KEVIN SHAWANDA is a Sudbury based comedian. Raised in the small reservation of Birch Island on the north shore of Lake Huron, he quickly developed an energetic sense of humour and need for attention. He doesn’t have a great deal of credits, but his wife once told him that he wasn’t as bad as some of the other comedians, and she really likes some of his skits.
