11th Annual Komedy for Kidneys - Rodney Pentland Memorial Show

On Wednesday March 7th, enjoy the Funniest Night in Niagara featuring some of Canada’s best stand-up comics! The 11th Anniversary Komedy for Kidneys Rodney Pentland Memorial Benefit Show takes place at the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls.

HEADLINER - the uniquely talented Jeremy Hotz!! Jeremy Hotz continues to grab audiences with his completely original and confused, yet very astute, observational comedy. He has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, made five appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and appeared on Comedy Central with his own half hour special. Most recently, Jeremy filmed a one-hour TV special "What A Miserable Show This is..." and is currently on a Canada-wide tour.

Hotz was to headline last year but broke his arm the day before the show. "We were going to get him here this year even if we had to break his legs," joked Mark Matthews, Event Co-Manager and Emcee.

The charity event was renamed in memory of comedian, Rodney Pentland, who passed away in 2009 from complications related to kidney disease. Pentland, who grew up in Niagara Falls, continued to entertain crowds throughout his long battle with renal disease and was best known for his outstanding impressions of Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando and Bill Cosby. To date, Komedy for Kidneys has raised over $60,000 in support of Dialysis Care in Niagara. Click here to learn more about the Kidney Care Program at Niagara Health.
