Live comedy is back in Burnaby.
The Rec Room at the Amazing Brentwood and Jokers Canada have partnered up to bring you a stand-up showcase featuring touring headliners.
This event is happening on April 30. The event is also 19-plus due to the content. Tickets are currently on sale and it’s already 50% sold out.
The NOW interviewed the founder of Jokers Canada, Aaron Arya about what to expect.
“You can expect a little bit of everything. And that's by design - we want different types of comedians with different viewpoints on the world and different kinds of approaches to their style as well,” said Arya.
The comedy show is also the first of many. This show in particular will be the first performance the group plays at the Rec Room, an entertainment complex owned by Cineplex.
The traveling group of performers are not just talent from Vancouver - all over Canada has representation.
“We change our lineup every show, and we always select Canadian comedians. Now, if there's a U.S. comedian in town, we may put them on, but our focus is to highlight some of the best Canadian comedians or some of the US comedians who relocated to Canada. But the focus is always to highlight the amazing Canadian talent available,” said Arya.
