Tuesday, July 18 | 8 PM Show | Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art in North Vancouver

This is a special show in collaboration with an art exhibition, Art School High. The exhibition explores socio-cultural issues relating to identity, adolescence, conformity, marginalization, and rebellious behaviours. Invited artists have made significant works reflecting on the experience of attending high school.

The Rules:

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.

Who says it’s a great show?

“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

This delightful show is back in one week! Say Wha?!

Have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or come across a hilariously out of date self-help book in a thrift store? Perhaps you flipped through Sarah Palin’s/ Justin Beiber’s/ R. Kelly’s etc. autobiography and guffawed at her/his life story. Well, that’s what Say Wha?! is all about.

At Say Wha?! charismatic performers put their comedic spin on some of the worst writing in print.

Free Hugs!

I have a new thing.

I started a weekly newsletter where I could write about deeper matters that I didn’t feel right sharing on Facebook or elsewhere. It’s an email from my heart to yours about life and other stuff. Two have been sent out to a lovely little audience. If you want to get in on my Internet Hugs project please sign up. The next one comes out on Wednesday. I promise to do this for three months and then I’ll reassess.

Here are two previews of hugs I’ve already given out to the Internet. Go ahead and read the full letters online.

Yes, it’s another Teen Angst Night. Presales are sold out but there will be tickets available at the door. Get there early! I have a feeling this show is going to be PACKED with possibly standing room only.

Want to know more about the show? Check out this nice article from Inside Vancouver that was published this week.

“On Saturday, eleven brave Vancouverites will take to the stage to read some of their best (i.e. worst) mementos from their youth. Part comedy show, part walk down memory lane, this show is one of the most notorious nights in Vancouver. It’s not all pretty, but that’s what makes it so funny.” – Inside Vancouver

Thanks to The Georgia Straight for including this show in a great round-up of awesome events in Vancouver today.

I’ve been hosting and producing T.A.N. since 2000. If you haven’t been before come check it out. There is a reason why this show is still running; it’s so fun!
