An Evening with Kim Barthel

Aug 21, 2019 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Kim travels the world reminding people that being nice is truly in their own interest. Through neurobiology research, sharing stories and Q&A, she connects people and eliminates shame. Ever wonder why people do the things they do? She encourages audiences of all cultures to become behavioural detectives – with humility, humour and informed discussion – and she compassionately raises topics most people don’t. Trauma-informed practice, mental health, developmental disability, abuse and neglect, addiction, attachment theory, compassion, resilience, the power of relationship - two hours are never enough but it gets the conversation going.

It’s a proven fact that laughter makes us happier and more cheerful. So the the Crack Up Comedy Festival, Ottawa’s premier charity Comedy event in support of mental health, held a comedy competition in Iqaluit in March 2018. The idea first cleared take-off when Dan Valin of First Air proposed that the popular Ottawa festival invite comics from all over Nunavut to battle it out for two spots at the Crack Up Comedy Festival in Ottawa, appearing along side some of Canada’s best comics in front of 700 people. Mary Walsh, creator and star of This Hour has 22 Minutes, Codco, Matching Hatching and Dispatching and much more, hosted the event. Eight local comics performed to a sold-out crowd and two winners from the competition moved on to perform at the finale of the Crack Up Comedy Festival in Ottawa two weeks later. Fast forward to October 2019 to witness the launch of the First Air Arctic Comedy Festival in Yellowknife and Iqaluit. Performers will include Mary Walsh, Cathy Jones, Howie Miller, Don Kelly, Paul Rabliauskas, and many more to be named. First Air is keen to promote and build the festival with a future possibility of expanding coverage to Whitehorse in 2020 to cover the entire North. Tickets will be available through our website as early as July so Visit us at http://www.ArcticComedyFestival.ca for all the details, line-up, and early-bird discounts and join our Facebook Page.
