Downward Facing Broad supports PELC

An hilarious and poignant look at the frustrations, perils, and yes, even joys of aging comes to Picton next month as Toronto-based comedy veteran Deborah Kimmett, of CBC’s Debaters, The Second City, and more, performs her ‘Downward Facing Broad’ show.

“Pretty soon, there will be more old people than ever before in the history of Canada,” said Kimmett. “We will be like Canada Geese, sitting and squawking everywhere.”

Downward Facing Broad is 90-minutes of Kimmett’s standup comedy interspersed with music by Kim Pollard, of Napanee.

The show has been selling out across the country – from Vancouver Island to Ontario. In 2019,
it aired as a live comedy special on CBC Radio and was released by Howl and Roar Records last fall and has since been holding its own as the number five download in Canada on iTunes for comedy albums.

Kimmett claims the whole thing started to go downhill when she was given the senior’s discount five years early. It got worse when her investment guy wondered what her retirement plans were, and Kimmett quiped, “To be a burden to society.”

In the show, Kimmett apologizes to her grandmothers, gives tips on how to avoid a fight at Aquafit, and then emerges victorious when she takes on a gun-slinging Rotarian.

“Kimmett may worry age will take away her power, but as a long-term CBC Debaters fan, I have never seen her more powerful, or funnier,” said TV producer Roger Larry, from Relevision.

The show is set for Saturday, April 4 at the Regent Theatre at 7:30 pm. $5 from each $35 ticket will go to Prince Edward Learning Centre which works with adults and youth on achieving goals related to employment, education and independence.
