TOM CAVANAGH ADDED AS GALA HOST
We're thrilled that TV funnyman Friday Late Night Gala themed "The Future". The former Ed star, who is soon to appear in the pilot for The CW’s new superhero spinoff The Flash, rounds out the last of our gala hosts.
Canadian-born Cavanagh’s TV credits include stints on Providence, Scrubs, Eli Stone and moody mini-series The Capture of the Green River Killer.
Cavanagh joins a number of new additions to the lineup, including rising stand-up star Phil Hanley, who’s been added to the Special Delivery gala hosted by the always unpredictable Tom Green on April 12; former Drew Carey co-star John Caponera, who’ll appear at the First World Problems gala hosted by Daryn Jones on April 11 at 6:45 p.m.; and local fave Paul Rabliauskas, who’s been confirmed as host of the Size Matters show at Gas Station Arts Centre on April 11.

Canadian-born Cavanagh’s TV credits include the starring role in the series Ed, and he is soon to appear in the pilot for The CW’s new superhero spinoff The Flash. He is also recognized for stints on Providence, Scrubs, Eli Stone, and moody mini-series The Capture of the Green River Killer – the latter filmed in Winnipeg, and a perfect fit with the WCF’s murderously macabre 13th anniversary.See more…
