2About Syd: Syd Bosel is a Family Support Worker and Vancouver-based Comic. She started comedy when her kids were little, but couldn’t do the late nights. She tried again when her kids were teenagers but couldn’t think of anything funny! Now Syd shares her musings on having “adult” children, surviving breast cancer and other glories of nature. She has opened for the “I am Woman Hear me Laff” tour, is a regular in the “Jest Ladies” circuit and was a returning headliner for the “Life is Funny” shows. Syd is a long time patron and friend of Mt. Pleasant Family Centre.

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting celebration of food, drink and community!
