Toronto, ON – Live from the Annex’s final show in its 2015 series is on December 1st. The holiday party show line up includes Elvira Kurt (Comic), David Jones (Music - Piano), Karim Rizkallah (Music – Halo Drum), Baker & Cawley (Improv/Sketch), Sasha Wentges, Laurie Murphy and Brian G. Smith (Co-MCs & LFTAnnex Co-Producers) and ‘CSI Annex Pop-Up Market’ (CSI Profile). In addition, the show features Brunswick Stew (Annex Improv) with guest improviser Naomi Snieckus. 'Live from the Annex' monthly cabaret features Toronto's best comedy, music and social innovators. A show blending arts, community and technology with live streaming via a video portal, LFTAnnex gives local talent the rare opportunity to shine locally and internationally.

Torontonian funny gal Elvira Kurt is known for signature spark and quick quipping. According to a Chilliwak News article, “She earned her chops with Second City, wrote material for This Hour has 22 Minutes and Ellen DeGeneres, was nominated for a Gemini award, and has hosted a variety of both radio and television shows. You might recognize her from CBC’s Debaters, The Comedy Network, as the host of Q’s Hall of Shame or YTV’s Cook’d. No matter what you know Elvira from, she proves time and time again that she is one of Canada’s best-known and most-loved comediennes for a reason!” (for a video bio, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EXSce2h2yY).
