Laugh Until Your Face Hurts at Teen Angst Night

DOIS_I5UQAABYbp

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 are cringe inducing and that’s what makes them so good! Now, imagine sharing those old notes in front of an audience. That’s exactly what happens at Teen Angst Night.

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.

Five Local Artists Totally Destroy Published Books At Say Wha?! Show

unnamed

Like my clickbait headline? Sorry, I had to do it. I’m just so excited to tell you about the awesome Say Wha?! show I produced last week.

The show featured: Emma Cooper! TJ Dawe! LeeAnn Kepel! AND Eric Fell! (Oh yeah, me too.)

A student from Langara College was there on an assignment to report on the event. She nicely summarized the show and wrote about who read which book –  but before you clink on the link, can you guess who read what?

Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought about them in the comments.

Novelty Act is Back!

IMG_8714

After a hiatus we’re back in an intimate venue doing it up on a Friday night! Twice! Wha-hoo!

Join Sara Bynoe and Riel Hahn for a night of comedy, storytelling, and joy.

These two Vancouver treasures are charming and multi talented forces of nature, and both are kind of uncategorizeable, so they made a show where they do whatever they want on stage, which equals them having a good time, which equals you having a GREAT time!

Funny, smart, welcoming and probably a bit weird, it’s Sara Bynoe and Riel Hahn on stage. And you! That’s it. That’s plenty!

Friday, October 13 and Friday, October 20  –  7:30 – 9 PM
$10 at the door.

Limited capacity. DM us to get on the guaranteed seating list.

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.
