CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – In January, Islanders batten down the hatches for what winter can throw at them. But by the first of February, it’s high time to throw those doors open and get out for a spirited night.

Join comedian Patrick Ledwell and musician Mark Haines for “The Shack Wacky Review”, a show celebrating Islanders and the qualities that help people live, drive and survive on P.E.I. all year round.

“The Shack Wacky Review” runs Feb. 2-3 at the P.E.I. Brewing Company, 96 Kensington Rd., Charlottetown. Originally scheduled for one date, “it sold out its Saturday show quickly, so the Feb. 2 date has just been added, in response to interest. Advance tickets are recommended. 

“As Islanders, we go a bit stir-crazy by the time February arrives,” says Ledwell. “So the idea behind this show is simple. Let’s get friends out around tables together, good drink in hand, and host a barn-rattling night of entertainment.”

Ledwell and Haines have established a P.E.I. tradition with “The Island Summer Review”,which has played five sold-out seasons at Harmony House in Hunter River.

“We’re already writing for the new summer season. I’m excited to try new pieces and revisit a few favourites in this lively venue,” adds Haines.

Their only Charlottetown show this season, “The Shacky Wacky Review” will shovel through a wintery Island landscape for jokes, songs and combinations of the two. 

The show begins at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Advance tickets are available now online at PEIbrewingcompany.com, in person at the P.E.I. Brewing Company or by calling 902-629-BREW (2739).
