Sweet Mariah: A Carey Christmas
Hot on the heels of their mega hit, sold-out OFF JFL/Zoofest run of Sainte Celine: A Dion Cabaret, comedians Tranna Wintour and Thomas Leblanc are back with a brand new show, Sweet Mariah: A Carey Christmas. This time around, the dynamic comedy duo are opening the music box, releasing the rainbow, waking up from the daydream, and letting their inner butterflies fly free, as they dive deep into all things Mariah Carey. In case you don’t know her, Mariah Carey is the self-proclaimed queen of Christmas and the singer with the most number one hits ever on the Billboard Hot 100, an accomplishment she will remind you of at any chance she gets.
Sweet Mariah will feature performances by Montreal’s greatest and brightest stars from the worlds of theatre, comedy, music, and dance, including Crystal Slippers, Ghost Love, Employees of the Year, and many more.
Starring Tranna Wintour and Thomas Leblanc.
Tranna Wintour is a writer and comedienne. She made her comedy debut at an open mic at Montreal’s Comedyworks, and since that fateful moment the lady has been unstoppable. Tranna has performed in Just for Laughs, Zoofest, Pride Toronto, and her Montreal Fringe Festival 2015 show, TRANTASY, garnered rave reviews. Upon seeing her one-woman show in New York City, legendary comedienne, Sandra Bernhard, proclaimed: “A star is born!”
Thomas Leblanc has been called a “ginger gay unicorn” by the very friend who pushed him in the pool of stand-up comedy. A poster boy of Montreal’s franglais crowd, Thomas lives and works in French and English (past and current employers include Radio-Canada’s ICI Première, Vice Québec, and Nightlife Magazine). An actor, director, producer, and drop out of Concordia’s Creative Writing program, Thomas proves that multi- hyphenate millennials are the best at turning anxiety about the future into cool professional bios.
