TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Toronto's Number One Night of Entertainment, "It's Always Something", an evening of comedy, music and dance in support of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, announces that tickets go on sale today at 10:00am for the 13th annual Variety Show to take place on Thursday, November 20th at Sony Centre for The Performing Arts.
Returning to host for a seventh year is Canada's internationally acclaimed Gemini Award-winning comedian Russell Peters. Straight off NBC's hit show Last Comic Standing, Russell is continuing his 2014/15 World Tour "Almost Famous" and he'll be joined on Sony Centre's stage by another all-star cast of comedians, musicians and dancers. All are donating their talents to Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, a cancer care centre providing free social and emotional support programs for anyone touched by cancer - kids, teens and adults, along with their family and friends.
Joining Russell will be famed soprano Measha Brueggergosman, with material from her new album "Measha's Christmas" to be released by Warner Music Canada this fall; the master of improvisational comedy, Gemini Award-winning Colin Mochrie; acclaimed singer-songwriter Steven Page; and singer-songwriter and former winner of 'Canadian Idol', Theo. And, as is its tradition, more talent will be announced as the show date nears, making "It's Always Something" one of the must-attend entertainment events of the year.
All proceeds from "It's Always Something" go to support Gilda's Club, Greater Toronto, named after famed Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner. Over its 12 years, the show has netted more than $4.5 million to fulfill Gilda's wish that "no one should face cancer alone."
Tickets for this always sold out evening are available by calling The Sony Centre box office at 1-855-872-7669 (SONY), or by visiting www.sonycentre.ca Other sites to visit are "It's Always Something" at www.itsalwayssomething.com and Gilda's Club, Greater Toronto at www.gildasclubtoronto.org.
