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.

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!

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 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

Don’t Sleep On This Show!

Teen Angst Endorcement Tweet Chelsea Rooney

A few months ago, local author and all around delightful woman, Chelsea Rooney wrote this lovely tweet/ endorsement of Teen Angst Night. It warmed my heart to have her share her thoughts and feelings about a show I adore with all my soul – a show that will not die, because it’s just so much fun and people keep showing up for it.

The next Teen Angst Night tomorrow! Wednesday, March 14 at the Cottage Bistro. Show starts promptly at 8 PM and will finish before 10 PM. Tickets are $10 at the door – partial proceeds go to charity.

Check out the Facebook event and see if your friends are going.

Don’t sleep on it anymore!
