Is there a home field advantage for local talent on Canada’s Got Talent?

Viewers will find out Tuesday when noted Niagara Falls comedian David Green takes to the stage at Fallsview Casino, along with acts from Whitby, Ajax and Mississauga for the sixth episode of the popular show.

Semi-finals begin next week.

Niagara Falls’ David Green has been called the ‘Punniest Comic in Canada’ and he is hoping his brand of humour will be good enough for a Golden Buzzer Tuesday on the OLG Stage in his adopted hometown. Born in the UK and now based in Niagara Falls, Green has performed stand-up comedy for 15 years.

Toria ‘Flexy-T’ Summerville of Ajax grew up dancing but was diagnosed with the rare connective tissue disease, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, when she was a teen. Determined to strengthen her body to help manage her symptoms, Toria embarked on a new journey, learning to embrace her disability while exploring the limits of the human body.

Richard Forget is a magician from Whitby who has been trying to create magic nobody else is performing for two decades. Forget, who describes his act as thoughtful, provocative, a little esoteric and very entertaining, credits magic with helping him endure and overcome many hurdles in his life.

Forget also hinted at a very “emotional” performance Tuesday on social media and credited the Canada’s Got Talent team for helping him through what he called a “crazy predicament.”

“Sometimes things happen that are out of your control and you have to find a way to deal with them, even when you are at the centre of a tornado,” Forget said, adding that viewers will have to watch Tuesday “to see what the heck I’m talking about.”

The Dreamboats are also on Tuesday list of performers tomorrow night and the rock ‘n roll band, featuring Ritchie Hummins, Johnny Fiacconi, Justin Zoltek, and Dave Kirby, have been playing the retro classics, as well as their retro-inspired originals, for more than a decade.

Other acts gracing the OLG Stage Tuesday include circus acts Cirque Kalabante and Tra My Trinh – both from Montreal; ASD Band from Toronto; The Beardhead Sisters from Edmonton; Jozie Piranian’s comedy act from Toronto; and The Cast, a dance act from Levis, Quebec.
