Comic Vision Oakville, held on April 22nd at the OE Banquet & Conference Centre, was sold out with 500 attendees showing their support for yet another successful year. This year Comic Vision’s five Canadian comedians were made possible because of the generous support of Dan Cooper, comedian sponsor. Headlining the event was funny man Mike MacDonald, who in addition to his successful and well received live performances all over North America, has appeared on numerous TV shows including “Late Night With David Letterman”, “The Arsenio Hall Show”, and “Just For Laughs” to name a few.
Comic Vision was cofounded by comedian and Oakville resident, Meg Soper, who also performs at the event, and Ann Morrison in 1999, after Ann’s son was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). RP is a degenerative eye disease that causes progressive vision loss with symptoms appearing during childhood.
All money raised by Comic Vision goes to support vision research through the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Comic Vision would like to extend a special thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors and the community of Oakville and Burlington for making Comic Vision possible year after year.
Due to its great success, Comic Vision is held in a total of five cities across Canada, including Oakville, London, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
