JustForLaughsIt’s time to laugh!  Every time we watch the news, we think the world’s gone mad and then think, we really need to laugh more often.  If you are feeling the same way, or just need a good laugh, you have lots of great opportunities to do just that during the upcoming Vancouver Comedy Festival. This event happens at various venues around the City between March 1st and March 10th including the Fox Cabaret, Little Mountain Gallery, Biltmore Cabaret and the Rio Theatre in East Vancouver.  There is an amazing line up of talent including a personal favourite Debra Digiovanni who plays The Comedy Mix March 1st to 3rd. Don’t miss a chance to see her sarcastic wit. In East Van, you will find Sasheer Zamata on March 2nd at the Biltmore Cabaret. Name sound familiar? Think Saturday Night Live cast member for 4 seasons.   Ronny Chieng will be at the Rio Theatre March 3rd and 4th, a well travelled comedian whose most recent gig is a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central. We have our eye on Vir Das who will be playing the Rio Theatre on March 8th and Tinder Tales happening at the Fox Cabaret March 3rd. To see the full line of up comedians and to get tickets, visit Just For Laughs.

Graham Clark’s The Quiz Show At Fox Cabaret September 9, 2017

21 Aug

Love to laugh? Or may you just need a laugh. We recommend you check out The Quiz Show coming to The Fox Cabaret on Saturday, September 9th.  The show which was originally featured at the now defunct Hot Art Wet City is back.  Graham Clark grew up loving all the old game shows and has created an interesting hybrid from game shows of the past. The Quiz Show is hosted by Graham Clark and features local comedians as contestants doing their best to make audience members laugh for which they win prizes.   If you are unfamiliar with Graham’s comedic talents, he is a 3 time Canadian Comedy Award winner, co-host of Maximum Fun’s Stop Podcasting Yourself, a regular on CBC’s The Debaters, has appeared at Just For Laughs, as well as Halifax and Winnipeg Comedy Festivals and even won best stand up last year a the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. So we would lay bets the guy will make you laugh. Tickets for the show are now available on Eventbrite for $10 in advance of $12 at the door.
