The arts council is presenting a comedy show with Roman Danylo, who is bringing two guests to his act, Paul Bae and Charlie Demers. Danylo begins his show with high energy observational stand-up, then incorporates audience members into interactive comedy sketches, breaking all the rules of traditional comedy shows by often crawling into the crowd or bringing audience members up on stage to make them part of the experience. Danylo has appeared or starred in several Canadian series including CBC's The Debaters, The Winnipeg and Halifax Comedy Festivals, Corner Gas, and, Just For Laughs Improv Championships.
Paul Bae, a high school English teacher by day and comedians by night, has appeared in many festivals, including Montreal's Just For Laughs. Bae was also the host of the hit comedy news-panel show, The CityNews List on CityTV. As well, Paul is a regular voice and contributor on the hit CBC Radio and TV series, The Debaters.
Charlie Demers was born and raised in Vancouver. He is an activist and comedian, a regular performer on CBC Radio One's The Debaters. In 2005, he was the judges' choice for Vancouver's funniest new comic; since then he has been featured on national radio, in print, as well as in festivals and live venues across Canada and the Pacific Northwest and with Paul Bae as the sketch duo Bucket. He is the author of Vancouver Special, a book about the social history of Vancouver, and a novel: The Prescription Errors.
The show is Oct. 6 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the ticket centre at 604-476-2787 or at www.theactmapleridge.org.
