Three to See Saturday: Pet Expo, Pro Coro’s We Breathe in Stars and Sean Lacomber

Article content

Pet Expo : After the sadness of having to postpone last year’s fuzzball jamboree, Pet Expo returns Saturday and Sunday! With expert trainer presentations, animal breed demonstrations, agility courses and of course a long list of vendors, this is an ideal one-stop for animal lovers of every stripe, spot or length of coat to get together and sniff each other’s, uh, stuff. It goes without saying the usual vaccine proof is required (for humans), and the family-run organization stresses repeatedly that you have to please leave your own pets at home. But it’s nice to see them back. This is all about the love, so prepare yourself to be overwhelmed by cuteness.

Sean Lecomber : A CBC’s The Debaters regular, local comedian Lecomber filmed his first Just For Laughs gala in 2013 and his comedy has been featured on, impressive, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Winner of the Just For Laughs homegrown competition, he’s written for This Hour Has 22 Minutes and is a two-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee. “All I do is perform for free for the troops,” he jokes. “Does that make me a hero too? I’ll let history decide. But probably yes.”
