It’s Just Another Mani Monday

I have been traveling all over the country for comedy gigs and since coming back from Banff I felt this look is magically and inspiring to me.

This week’s look is inspired by fall dark colors. This look is black but with sparkle fragments in the Incoco Nail Applique – Black Diamonds. Enjoy!  If you try this look or any other looks from my Monday, It’s Just Another Mani Monday, please email me your pictures and comments, I love to hear from you.

Website for Incoco  Where I buy all my Nail Applique’s.  I have and use the Sally Hansen nail applique’s, but I do find them very difficult to apply, and it take double the time to use verses the Incoco.

As a Canadian Comedy and TV host, I travel a lot and I do find myself in the public eye a lot.  I like to look good and feel good at the same time.  Plus I love make up and pretty things, so I created my own YouTube Channel to share with everyone things I love, my outfits, what I am reading, and many other videos…. you even catch me ranting.   My Manager has crated another YouTube channel of My comedy and TV which is Candy Comedy YouTube Channel   where she posts a handful of my stand up comedy and so far the first of my 3 Seasons of The Candy Show.

I hope you enjoy and please subscribe to my website and YouTube Channels.

See you again soon,

Comedy, Comedy everywhere

Hello fantastic people.

Candy has been all over the country and is on the road, or to be more accurate, in the air as we speak, traveling to comedy gigs.  Candy performed at the Banff Centre for the Arts last week and is heading to Saskatoon this week.  When Candy is not on the road, in the air you will find her most often on CBC radio DNTO, like this past Saturday.  Here is what you might have missed on DNTO, “First Dates”, Candy’s segment starts at 38:30.

Season 3 of The Candy Show will air in a few months, exact date TBD by Network

Season 4 of The Candy Show Production  – we are waiting on Network, should hear by end of September.  Will post as soon as we know more.

See you next time….

Wearing 2 hats – Comedy and Speaking

Good morning,  Candy and (The Candy Show) fans -Today’s blog is  written by me, Denise Tompkins, Candy’s Manager.

Today’s blog post is more about Candy, rather than her videos,  and her life style YouTube Channel.  I want to provide all of you with details of Candy Palmater’s talents.  Many of you might only now her as a Professional stand up comedian, or maybe a National TV star, or just as an inspirational speaker.  I want to introduce all of Candy’s talents to you.  I would not be a good Manager if I didn’t, now would I? (*smile)

Candy Palmater’s number one, greatest talent is her ability to captivate audiences with her Key note speeches. She can make you weepy and laugh through the power of her words, and at the same time feel motivated or become active in your cause, business and education.  Here are a few of many testimonials from clients Please read I have the pleasure of attending Candy’s key note speeches, and just when I think I have heard everything, wham, I am knocked off my feet with emotion once more.  I feel fueled with my every day tasks and with my career, not to mention how I interact with people. Candy’s speeches help with self confidence, motivation with life in general but more importantly, how you move through life on your own path.  Candy’s stay in school message brings her speaking to auditoriums in junior high and high schools across the country.  Candy speaks to college and university students, educators, Principals, and vice principals.  Everyone walks away with a heightened sense of importance that helps each person with their life journey. Once you hear Candy speak, you will never see the world the same again.   I’d like to invite you to read About Candy

I believe the second greatest talent of Candy Palmater, and this is a very tight second, perhaps 1.5 rather than a 2,  is her Stand up Comedy.  There isn’t a single person alive today that delivers comedy the way Candy can deliver.  I have searched and I am yet to find other like her, trust me.  There are many awesome comedians performing their craft, and many utilize the “industry normal” or “industry standard” as I like to call it.  I think this is great,  and I think that stand up comedy is a true art form.  You try getting up on a stage in front of 500 people, just you, and entertain for 1 hour solid. Bet you can’t do it, I know I would have a massive coronary if I even try stepping on a stage.   There are many styles of stand up comedy, and many unique ways to deliver the funny to the audience.  Candy Palmater’s comedy is unique, friggin hilarious, most often edgy, and educational.  At the moment of delivery, the  impact of a joke can make you laugh until you pee yourself ( I have witnessed many aftermaths after Candy has been on stage, and this has happened). But at 3 AM you wake up thinking about the underlying message in Candy’s material.

Candy’s comedy Shows are often Produced by her Manager, me, or she travels the country to large events, Corporate functions, private festivals, outdoor festivals, TV specials, and private functions.  Catching a stand up comedy show is your city/ province or country is very limited, but that does not mean she won;t be there. Contact BOOKINGS and we will bring her to you.  Candy has performed in front of an audience of 50 people, and as large as 12,000 people. There is no venue that is too large for Candy, “bigger the better”, Candy says.  Candy receives emails, fan messages, new fan messages and social media tweets about her comedy shows, TV show ( The Candy Show – variety national Television series where Candy performs comedy), and her speaking all the time.  I love to hear that her message is out there, people are listening and people are loving Candy’s vibe.   Wikipedia – Candy Palmater

** Candy writes all her comedy material and her National TV show is 100% written/ created/ Co-Produced by Candy Palmater**   Many comedians of her caliber, have co-writers, not Candy. ( This is unique in itself).  Candy’s Comedy YouTube Channel

Thank you for supporting Candy Palmater.  My goal was to boast about my client, and I hope my summary blog paid homage to a great Canadian Comedian, an awesome Canadian Entertainer, and a wonderful, intelligent, and kind person.

Please leave us your comments, we love to hear from you.

It”s Just Another Mani Monday

Good Monday Morning,

I just got back from performing in Banff, had a fantastic time and the audience was dynamite as usual.  Performing at the Banff Centre of The Arts was very inspiring both, as a writer and performer.  I  am thinking I might make it a  place to venture to each year to  write and keep  inspired, perhaps reside there for a couple weeks at a time.  What a trip,  I certainly  am more inspired creatively.  Fun time.

Its Just Another Mani Monday look today is inspired by fall colors, reds family, and my favorite time of the year.  I hope you like, I hope you feel inspired too!
