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.

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.

The show is tomorrow Saturday, May 6 at the Fox Cabaret.

Advance ticket sales end tonight at midnight – $10 in advance, after that it’s $15 at the door.

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 Or come across a hilariously out of date self-help book in a thrift store?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.

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!

Doors: 7 PM | Show: 8 PM | Fox Cabaret: 2321 Main Street, Vancouver | $15 at the door
