McDonald at the Movies: Some Like It Hot @ Winnipeg Cinematheque (304-100 Arthur Street)

Wednesday, March 6

7pm

Once a month, comedian, star and co-founder of The Kids in the Hall, comic Kevin McDonald, will present a film handpicked from the archives of comic history and give an introduction. This month, it’s Billy Wilder’s 1959 screwball classic Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as Chicago musicians who disguise themselves as women and go on the lam. The one and only Marilyn Monroe is there too, always getting the fuzzy end of the lollypop, as they say (no one says that).

Go For a Szozda @ The Palomino Club (436 Main Street)

Friday, Mach 8 and Saturday, March 9

If you like a band that’s fun, plays great music, and involves the audience, you’ll love Go For a Szozda, a Winnipeg cover band that is passionate, yet playful. This four piece female fronted group consists of experienced musicians who blend sweet and strong harmonies, then add a diverse live show that gets the crowd singing and dancing!

The Sasha Ha-Ha Show @ Wee Johnny’s (177 McDermot Ave)

Saturday, March 9

9pm

The Sasha Ha-Ha Show: a monthly stand-up show hosted by Sasha Mark that takes place on the second Saturday of every month. Sasha Mark puts the “s” in stand up, he also puts the t-a-n-d-u-p after the “s” because that’s how he learned to spell it. He’s your local Winnipeg comic, who has worked with some amazing collaborators like WOKE Comedy Hour, Queer and Present Danger and was a panel comedian for this past season of APTN’s The Laughing Drum. He also has a moustache, it’s pretty neat.
