Going through the foyer to the ballroom, we bumped into regulars of this yearly Soirée: radio host Mitsou and her husband Iohann Martin. TV host and producer Eric Salvail, radio and TV host Isabelle Racicot with husband music executive Donald Robins. Also there, TV host and producer Herby Moreau. It wasn’t long before I got to catch up with Montreal notables Lynn and Andy Nulman, McGill professor Karl Moore, restaurateur Carlos Ferreira (Euro-chic in green pants). And, wanting to get some Just For Laughs exclusives, I cozied up to its COO, Bruce Hills: no dice.
