A Kelowna coffee shop got a jolt of celebrity this week when Rick Mercer stopped by.

Bliss Bakery posted about the Mercer visit Tuesday, after he took the time for some photos with fans.

“We were thrilled to have Canadian icon Rick Mercer visit us today at our Ellis location. In town for the Just for Laughs Comedy Night Canada tour, he was a pleasure to speak with as he enjoyed his coffee,” read a caption on Bliss Bakery’s site.

Mercer is hosting the 18th edition of Just For Laughs Comedy Night in Canada.

The Just For Laughs Comedy Night in Canada has Mercer, along with 2018 Juno Award winner for comedy album of the year Ivan Decker, Gemini award-winning comedian Debra DiGiovanni and host of CBC and Sirius XM’s Laugh Out Loud the hilarious Ali Hassan, perform in prestigious theatres from coast-to-coast.

It started October 23 in St. John’s, NL and is in Kelowna at the Kelowna Community Theatre on Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Just For Laughs is proud to be associated with Movember Canada. One dollar, less applicable taxes, from every ticket sold to Just For Laughs Comedy Night in Canada will be donated to Movember Canada to support men’s health.
