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.

This Event Will Impress The Cool People in Your Life

Hey Vancouver,

Are you looking for a low-key Monday night event to take your Tinder match on a second date to to test their sense of humour, Vancouver?

Are you hoping to break out of your book club humdrum but still want some book action?

Maybe you’re just free next Monday and are looking for something fun to do?

Well… I have a show for you!

Funny people read from (and take the piss out of) the worst books they can find at Say Wha?! Readings of Deliciously Rotten Writing.

What people have said about Say Wha?! 

“At $10 at the door, Say Wha?! is a steal for a great night out.”  – VanCityBuzz
“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.” – The Georgia Straight

As Vancouver continues to emerge as a leader in the present and future of writing on the world stage—via publications like Poetry is Dead and One Cool Word and events held by the Vancouver Book Club, the Robson Reading Series and the Vancouver International Writers Festival, to name a few, the Say Wha?! series offers an important and perfectly Canadian contribution to the scene: “Quit taking yourselves so seriously.” – Granville Mag

“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 

It’s a Christmas miracle!

I have two delightful shows for that wonderful downtime between Xmas and NYE. Join me for some fun and laughs on Main Street.

My Least Favourite Say Wha?!

I created the show Say Wha?! Readings of Deliciously Rotten Writing in 2010 and over the years I have read A LOT of terrible books. So many. Too many. So, for this very special post-holiday edition I’ll be sharing my favourite/least favourite books. Yes, Bear will make an appearance.

If you’ve never been to a Say Wha?! show you don’t want to miss this Best of the Worst edition.

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.

Funny People and Bad Books

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.

I stole recent photos of this month’s Say Wha?! readers from their Instagram feeds so you could see how fun and sexy they all are. Clockwise from top right: Kyle Fines, Emma Cooper, Anthony Casey (aka Shanda Leer), and Fatima Dhowre.
