Toronto, ON – November 25, 2013 – Deaf Comedy Jam is a one-of-a-kind event that you won’t find anywhere else in Canada - a live stand-up show with an American Sign Language interpreter onstage. Hosted by D.J. Demers, an acclaimed Toronto comic who wears hearing aids, Deaf Comedy Jam promises to be a hilarious evening for deaf and hearing people alike.

“I know there are a lot of deaf and hard-of-hearing people who enjoy comedy,” says Demers. “I’m really excited to have an interpreter onstage with the comics so that everyone can enjoy live stand-up comedy, regardless of their hearing ability.”

Deaf Comedy Jam features some of the best stand-up comics in Canada. D.J. Demers was a finalist in NBC’s Stand-Up for Diversity. Feature act Graham Kay was the winner of the 2013 Homegrown Comedy Competition at Just For Laughs in Montreal. Headliner Ryan Belleville is a regular at the Just For Laughs festival, and was the youngest person to tape his own Comedy Now! special for CTV.

Deaf Comedy Jam. December 14th at 9 pm.Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online athttp://www.secureaseat.com/events/deaf-comedy-jam/.
