Behind the Scene: JACKASS (Comedy & Stunt Show)
The lineup stretched up Colborne as far as the eye could see, which led to a packed house at NV Night Club, for theJackass (Comedy & Stunt Show). Presented by Blackout // Concerts & Events and wtfest.ca. The show featured the talents of Wally Warwick, Devin Bateson, Jordan Scherer,Tom Garland, and the Jackass crew, Wee-Man, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England, and “Danger” Ehren McGhehey.
The crowd was wild. Screaming requests, shouting profanities, participating in challenges, and laughing their hearts out. Each act was met with a wave of enthusiastic cheer and praise. When you entered the show, WTFest volunteers were handing out a green ticket. During intermission, Jamie Stephens took to the stage and announced that anyone who had collected the green ticket would receive free admission to WTFest. The crowd went wild. It is hard to describe exactly the vibe of the show, it is one of those “You had to be there.” events. This writer is certain that stories of last night’s performance will be the talk of the town in lunch rooms, coffee breaks, commutes, and more, for some time to come. The Jackass crew were delighted to come to Brantford and announced that they would return if asked. After the show they could Be Seen signing merch, answering questions, taking photos, and carrying on with fans. An incredible, talented group of entertainers. If you are given the opportunity to attend a show, it is one you won’t want to miss.
