Dore will also be the final guest at the second of two April 12 galas at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre.

Dore will also join the lineup of a live version of XM Radio’s “Anything Goes” podcast taking place Wednesday, April 10 at the Gas Station Theatre.

The Winnipeg Comedy Festival runs April 8-14.
