Evan’s connectivity to his audience is masterfully achieved by his ability to see the comedic world through the eyes of a father, son, and friend. His likes, dislikes, and head scratching moments provide an endless source of fascination and material that he masterfully delivers on stage in front of head nodding and belly laughing audience members. Carter’s versatility, experience, and professionalism serve him well and he transitions easily from different venues such as the opening of the 2015 Pam Am Games, to concert halls, working with musical stars such as Gladys Knight, The Temptations, Air Supply, Dionne Warwick, John Cougar, Midnight Oil, the late Marvin Gaye as well as many other top names in the world of show business. Mr. Carter is a relatable stand-up comedian who invites the audience to sit back, relax, and share a good hard laugh at life.

As one audience member so aptly stated,

“Evan is a legend in the Canadian comedy scene and has been considered by fans and comics alike to be one of the best ever. For years he has been at the top of the heap, and continues to deliver clean and witty comedy as good as it gets.”

Godspell - Scarborough Village Theatre - May 4th - 19th
2pm & 8pm

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright, and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from six-time Tony and three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm.
