Join us for food, drinks and lots of laughs! The Rehabilitation Foundation is bringing in two award winning, nationally touring comedians, each with a unique background! Proceeds from the event benefit The ReHabilitation Center and people with disabiltiies in the community.
The featured comedian of the annual event, which raises funds for The ReHabilitation Center, is D.J. Demers who is hearing-impaired. Demers was diagnosed with a hearing disability at age 4. As a young boy, he found a way to make friends with laughter. “Comedy and making my friends laugh was a way for me to connect with people and be something other than a boy with hearing aids,” he stated at America’s Got Talent last year. Demers recently appeared on season 11 of America’s Got Talent. He has been on Conan twice and was the winner of both the 2014 Homegrown Comics Competition and 2013 Toronto Comedy Brawl, was a finalist in NBC’s Stand-up for Diversity, and won ‘Best Breakout Artist’ at the 2015 Canadian Comedy Awards. And yes, he also wears hearing aids.
