We are delighted to return to our original home at Kafe Scherz for another great evening of comedy in Bratislava with two great comedians. Dana Alexander, one of Canada’s most outspoken and hilarious women, has packed her bags for Europe and is currently taking the comedy circuit by storm. Jeff Leach is one of the most familiar and in-demand faces on British TV currently. We are extremely lucky to have persuaded both of these top performers to take time out to perform for us in Bratislava.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance from: http://www.bratislava.babybluebanana.com/tickets.html or you can buy them with cash from Kafe Scherz or from Goblins’ Pub at Dunajska 29.

The only black female comedian that was working on the circuit in Canada, Dana Alexander’s comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyleand her crazy Jamaican family. This is a lady not to be missed! She brings a refreshing change to the comedy scene while her own home sensibilities endear her to a wide variety of audiences. She is a comic you definitely do not want to miss. Dana began her comedy career at the tender age of 18 and quickly became a regular fixture on the Canadian Comedy circuit, resulting recently in her own one hour comedy special on the country’s number one TV Stand-up show Comedy Now. Dana draws her material from raw life experience with an original and hilarious outlook.

Dana talks about everything from family to sex to culture with a down-to-earth and world sensibility. Her unique ability to see the insanity on our every-day lives is what endears her to a wide variety of audiences all over the world.

She was voted in the “Best Discoveries” by Canada’s renowned Now Magazine in 2006 and has since been included in their “Best Of” issues three years in a row, easily making her one of Canada’s hottest emerging young comedians.

Jeff Leach is a young man on his way to world domination!
