Nowhere but in Saskatchewan could you keep a community in stitches in the streets with comedians in the glow of headlights under the summer stars. That’s the scene the area residents enjoyed on a beautiful August night on Saturday in Muenster with Comedy in the Street, hosted by Hotel Muenster. 

Danny Knight kicked off the evening and acted as MC. A gifted physical comic, he launched into a series of animal impression and segwayed into a string of hilarious and thought-provoking observations on his life as an Indigenous person in the province. Comedian Shawn Cuthand, a collaborator with Knight on various projects, also brought his own spin on Saskatchewan life, his own culture, and simply navigating through increasingly complex modern turmoils. 

Veteran comic Aimee Grimard brought a woman’s perspective to the proceedings with her take on relationships, aging and life hacks. To cap off the evening, Daryll “Junior” Koszman, originally from the small southern Saskatchewan community of Bengough, leveraged his rural prairie experience to the max in entertaining the crowd. Koszman drew on his time growing up in a school with his dad as a teacher, but he also used ammunition he found around his Muenster setting to leave the audience roaring. 

The event was also a fundraiser for the planned Muenster Community Day Care Centre through a silent auction. In the afternoon, the street was buzzing with children enjoying the inflatable castles.  

Koszman, along with hosts Brian and Diane Langlois, are hoping to continue and grow the comedy tradition into an annual event. Judging by the smiling faces on Railway Street, they’ll have plenty of return visitors for next year’s event.
