Funny women compete for cash

April's Merridale Showdown includes Lucia Ribeiro, Justine Drummond and Shell Suzuki

The Merridale Showdown presents Funny Women. Seven solo performers each get seven minutes on stage to entertain. The audience votes for the winner who takes home the coveted Merridale Crown and $100 cash.

This month’s talented competitors are: Lucia Ribeiro, Justine Drummond, Bobbie Williams, Jen Dickson, Pat Schandl, Carol Halligan and Shell Suzuki. With guest comic Carilynn Nicholson; hosted by Kirsten Van Ritzen

The Merridale Showdown takes place on the third Sunday of every month with a different theme or genre. There is no Showdown in May. The June 21 Showdown will feature (for the first time ever) Drag Queens and Kings – as a prelude to Pride.
