Imagine for a second your grandmother decided to take the stage at an open mic comedy Winnipeg.

Well fortunately for me, I don’t have to, because my 89-year-old grandmother did just that, and I knew she would, she brought the house down.  And luckily for you guys, there’s video of the one and only Jean Morrison to prove it.

It was all a part of the Winnipeg’s Gone Wacky contest and up for grabs is a chance to make it to the Top Ten and perform at the Comedy showdown.  The winner of that will be named Winnipeg’s Wackiest Amateur Comedian 2011, and she could win a $1,000 and a Blackberry Playbook.

You have to register to vote (which is annoying), but seriously, she’s 89, how could you not want to vote?

My granny has always dreamed about being a stand up comedian, and she’s dabbled a little bit, but I think this was the first time she intentionally went up and had a routine prepared.  I can’t imagine ever standing up like she did, especially in a crowd full of comedians.

I’ve watched the video probably nine times already and I continue to be in awe.  How lucky am I to have someone that has set the Morrison bar so high, yeah, I’m very, very lucky.
