Jon Dore
May 16th through 19th
Cap City Comedy Club

     Ottawa-born comedian and host Jon Dore spent three years co-hosting “Rogers Television's Daytime,” sharpening his skills to a fine point.  For his work, creativity and quick improv skills, he received the Impression Award for “Best On-Air Personality in 2001.”
     Many of Dore's hosting skills come from working as a stand-up on the comedy club circuit in Canada.  In 2003, he took part in the Homegrown Comedy Competition at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and this past summer he returned to the festival to host the competition for a second straight year.
     Dore is most recognized for his part on the hottest program on Canadian TV - CTV's “Canadian Idol” - as the former wacky correspondent reporting on the pressures and excitement of the contest with his unique brand of humour.  His fame will soon spread, as the “The Jon Dore Television Show “will be premiering on The Comedy Network this fall.
     The comic has also appeared on his own “Comedy Now!” special for CTV and The Comedy Network, and was featured on The A Channel's comedy special “Toronto Laughs.”  Other television appearances he was in include “How I Met Your Mother¸” “Hotbox” and “Naturally, Sadie.”
     Jon Dore performs at Capitol City Comedy Club on Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.  Tickets are $9 to $18.
    Capitol City Comedy Club is located at 8120 Research Blvd.  For tickets and information, call (512) 467-2333 or visit www.CapCityComedy.com.
