MEDIA
“But is it real comedy? It most certainly is. People love to laugh and there are many routes to arrive at that destination. Is it traditional? It most certainly is not. It’s not what the average person envisions when they think of comedy. But regular shows would kill for these kinds of laughs.” Georgia Straight

“Teen Angst Night is a good time” CFOX Radio

This event takes place on unceded Coast Salish land, the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

Come for the angst and then dance your pain away at the Y2K dance party.

Characters & Words

0.jpg

If you follow me on Instagram you know about this already. I’ve recently started an acting/ writing/ photography projects I’m calling #CharactersAndWords where I create a character, photograph myself as them, and write a character study or short story inspired by the character. My intention is to do this for a full month.

The response so far has been very kind and supportive. It’s an improvised and quick process where characters, photos, and words are often created and posted in under an hour. Check it out!

Save The Date! I have Fall Shows!

Alright, I’ve accepted it – summer is over. It’s time to get back to putting my nose in books and make fun of them, because we need some laughter to distract us from the dystopia we are living in.

 

I haven’t chosen my bad book for the next Say Wha?! so if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them! See you on Main Street!

Say Wha?! is Back! SAY WHA??!!!

What began in June of 2010 is still going because it’s just so darn fun!

Who likes Say Wha?! Smart, sassy, people who enjoy reading, taking the piss, and love to feel a bit smug.

Don’t get it? Well, have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or maybe you were in a thrift store and found a hilariously out of date self-help book. Perhaps you flipped through Tori Spelling’s/ Justin Bieber’s/ R. Kelly’s etc. autobiography and guffawed at her/his life story. Now imagine charming and comedic performers telling you all about these terrible tales. Well, that’s what Say Wha?! is all about. – Funny people sharing bad books.

The event producer and host, Sara Bynoe was inspired to create this night after she found a bad romance novel in a hostel in Bath, England which provided hours of entertainment for her friends. Since the show first launched in June 2010 Say Wha?! has featured at the Vancouver Comedy Festival, All Jane No Dick Comedy Festival (Portland), The Vancouver International Poetry Festival, and the Olio Festival.

Don’t Miss Out on Teen Angst

Teen-Angst-Instagram

Somewhere in the back of your closet gathering dust and turning yellow with age is comedic gold. Those old journals, poems, and essays you wrote as a teenager when you thought you could do no wrong, would probably make you cringe at your former feelings if you were to read them today. Now, imagine sharing them in front of an audience. That’s exactly what happens at Teen Angst.

Teen Angst Night is a comedic reading series. Readers can share anything (poetry, songs, letters, journals, diaries, essays, stories, plays, lists, etc) so long as it follows these rules:

1- The work must be your own.
2- You must have written it between the ages of 10-19.
3- You cannot be proud of the work you share. It’s best if you’re super embarrassed.

What the media has said about Teen Angst Night:

“Teen Angst Night is a good time” CFOX Radio

“But is it real comedy? It most certainly is. People love to laugh and there are many routes to arrive at that destination. Is it traditional? It most certainly is not. It’s not what the average person envisions when they think of comedy. But regular shows would kill for these kinds of laughs.” Georgia Straight

“I like it when the definition of “theatre” gets stretched. That’s what Sara Bynoe’s doing.” … “I gut laughed the whole evening. So did the rest of the audience. It was a full house. It always is. – TJ Dawe in the Charlebois Post

Be like Chelsea and don’t sleep on this show any more!

Regular Shows Would Kill for These Kinds of Laughs

Tonight I’ll be joined by five of Vancouver’s funniest people for Say Wha?!

Join us at the Cottage Bistro (Main and 29 ave) at 8 PM for a night (ok, 2 hours) of terrible books made into jokes and satire.

Bring your book club, bring your friends, or bring that dude you met online twice whose sense of humour you’re not sure about to test his judgement.

It’s only $10 for a show the Georgia Straight remarked, “regular shows would kill for these kinds of laughs.”

What are you waiting for? Netflix will be there when you get home & these books will never be read again.

Crazy Eyes and Honest Abe

Have you seen me on your TV lately? No? Well, here’s some screen time with my face.

The first one might not have made it to air but I just found it online. The second one came out this week.

This ad was so fun and weird. “Make your eyes really big and make your mouth like you’re sucking on a mint.”
