Mike Dambra
Mike Dambra has become famous for, nay, almost dependent upon, a joke so politically incorrect it can cause even insensitive boors to swoon in shock – a routine about retards. That’s right: Retards. Being from New York is his excuse for using the word “retard” instead of “special needs” or some such – he uses the word “homo,” too – but the Edmonton-based comic has a deeper agenda. At the Laugh Shop Friday and Saturday, Dambra is expected to pull out the popular “Pickle Bit.” The routine was born when a female heckler objected to his using the word “retard” in an otherwise unrelated joke many years ago. Apparently she got so mad she flipped a table over. As is the case with almost every comedian’s personal experience, Dambra got to work, searching for the humour. Voila! The Pickle Bit.
