Johnny Reid

Toby's fantastic performance (see post below) was followed by Johnny Reid a few nights later. This time, the location was the 1000 seat Chrome Room of the Deerfoot Inn & Casino. Johnny is originally from Scotland and has a strong Scottish accent. During the show, he did a segment where he essentially told jokes for 15 minutes. We were surprised that the Canadian audience could understand him, but to their credit, they managed to hang in there although there was a smattering of "what did he say?" comments and consequently delayed laughing, going on in the row behind us!

As a performer, like Toby, he is absolutely excellent - a very talented man!
