The Wrong Show At The Biltmore Cabaret August 11th

16 Jul

WrongshowSome wicked comedy is coming to The Biltmore Cabaret aptly named The Wrong Show. If you are looking for politically correct, this show will not be it.  The Wrong Show features a swack of local talent including Watermelon (also known as a weed diva, licorice hustler and hula hoop queen). We learnt Watermelon actually did quite a bit of stand up comedy, so she’s taking the stage again in good company with cabaret queen Burgundy Brixx, Sandra Sanders. They are joined by Bonnie Kilroe, Velvet Steele and Shaboobie Boobarella for what we expect will be an epic night filled with sketch comedy, music, physical and stand up comedy with women who have a lot of life experience to bring to the stage.   The Wrong Show happens Sunday, August 11th at 9:00 pm, doors open at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $14.20 and available through Eventbrite.

29 Jan

sslfoolforloveStory Story Lie is back at The Rio Theatre February 13th with A Fool For Love.  Story Story Lie is an interactive show where some of Vancouver’s best entertainers share intimate, funny and often embarrassing stories about themselves. One of them is lying and telling you a tall tale. But which one?  The audience gets to take part in the interrogation to reveal who the liar is. And the first audience member to guess the liar, wins the grand prize as well as bragging rights. The upcoming show on February 13th is a Valentine’s Day Special featuring love stories from the funny to the darn right foolish.  Of course, one of the contestants is telling a lie. Spot the liar right and you could win some lavish lingerie from Your Open Closet. The line up of storytellers include:

★ Julie Kim (Canadian Comedy Award Nominee)

★ John Cullen (Just for Laughs)

★ Lola Leaf (French Model)

★ Johnny Trinh (Regina Poetry Slam Champion)

★ Lindi Nolte (Spoken Word Artist)

This is a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For tickets to Fool For Love, visit the Rio Theatre. Doors open at 6:30 pm and fun gets under way at 7:00 pm. Warning for those that have never been, the show WILL certainly contain strong language, somewhat mature and immature subject matter.
