Anton Tymoshenko Stand-Up

About the event: Famous Ukrainian comedian Anton Tymoshenko will visit Calgary as part of his first North American tour.

Notably, last fall Anton held several major concerts in Kyiv, raising 4.6 million hryvnias for the Defense Forces. He aims to bring back even more from this tour if Ukrainians support quality humor with their dollars. He has written a special program for this charity tour, so you haven't seen these jokes on TikTok or YouTube yet.
