Read his touching account of the “once-in-a-lifetime” evening.
Dave Thomas and The Second City are proud to present TAKE OFF, EH!, a star-studded intimate evening featuring performances from some of Canada’s biggest names in comedy and music on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 on The Second City Toronto‘s Mainstage, with proceeds going to ‘Jake Thomas’s Road to Recovery’ and Spinal Cord Injury Ontario.
On January 7, 2017, Jake Thomas, nephew of SCTV’s Dave Thomas, sustained a complete spinal cord injury while snowmobiling, which has left this active community member from Muskoka Region paralyzed from the waist down. Funds raised at TAKE OFF, EH! will go directly to Jake Thomas and his family, as well as to Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, providing life-long support to people with spinal cord injuries as they face significant challenges they could have never prepared for — and should not endure alone.
Performances by Canadian legends including: Bob and Doug McKenzie’s “Great White North” reunion with Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis; Martin Short with a signature one-on-one SPECIAL GUEST (TBA) interview by Jiminy Glick; comedy from Dan Aykroyd, Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, and Joe Flaherty; The Kids in the Hall’s Dave Foley, Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald; and Special Guest Musical Performances from Paul Shaffer, Ian Thomas, Murray McLauchlan and surprise musical guests.
