Winnipeg Comedy Festival, CBC Now or Never, April 5 2017

Hosted by the fabulous Trevor and Ify!

“What’s your big reveal?

On the very first Now or Never live show, recorded at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, hear storytellers muster up the courage to reveal something on stage for the very first time — from confessing to a theft to making a drag queen debut. Plus, live music from Begonia!”

Trevor Dineen: “in addition to co-hosting Now or Never, Trevor makes rush hour fun as the traffic reporter on Information Radio 89.3FM/990AM, CBC Manitoba’s flagship #1 morning show. And when he’s not guiding drivers through stalls and collisions, he’s bringing the laughs on Twitter and settling into a fun new chapter in life as Dad to baby Jack. Prior to joining CBC, Trevor worked at CityTV Winnipeg and hosted a style/fashion web series (obviously given his – self-described – glorious hair).”

Ify Chiwetelu
“This Nigerian-born, former Calgarian quit a job in the energy sector to pursue her creativity. In doing so, Ify Chiwetelu charted her own path to form a career as a stand-up comic, improv performer, and comedy writer. She has written articles for CBC Comedy and is a contributing writer for the upcoming Season 2 of CBC’s hit television show Baroness Von Sketch Show.”

“As part of our very first live episodeNow or Never put out a challenge to our listeners: what is something you need to reveal right now? That’s how we discovered Kevin Tan, a young Winnipegger who has struggled with bullying and drug addiction but is ready for his big reveal — the debut of his drag alter-ego, SlayTana. ”
