This weekend there is some great entertainment on stage at the Olive and John Diefenbaker Theatre.

On Saturday, June 14, as part of a celebration of their 50th Anniversary, Kin Enterprises proudly presents comedian Brent Butt. Brent Butt was born in Tisdale. 

While he was in school he honed his comedy skills. At 20, he moved to the city to embark on his career as a standup comedian. Soon after, he was headlining in some of the top comedy clubs in Toronto. 

His popularity spread and in a few years he was performing at major international festivals. He secured some television specials which were highly touted and he was soon looked at as one of the funniest people in the country. 

His sitcom, “Corner Gas,” was an instant hit.  It was shown in 26 countries including the United States. He is now working on a full length ‘Corner Gas’ movie which will be shot in Saskatchewan.

The June 14 event will include a Kin Enterprises 50th Anniversary presentation, a silent auction, opening comedian act and, of course, Brent Butt's performance.  The proceeds of this event will go to the KIN Enterprises building fund.
