Talent Time: Anti-S.A.D BBQ! | The Rio Theatre | Thursday, 02. November 2017

When the weather is at it's worst, we will gather and fight Seasonal Affective Disorder with an old fashion BBQ! We are hoping to get a BBQ food truck outfront and then bring in food samples for you all to taste. Picnic on the stage under the hot sun? Plus lots of other summer themed entertainment to warm your chilly bones.

Confirmed so far...

First week in January is Ukrainian Christmas, we celebrate with the traditional sights and sounds of my people. (Yes, I CAN do that dance where you shoot your legs out in a squatted position but I don't think I should)

Beginning his career in stand-up only four years ago, Gavin has already appeared twice at JFL Northwest, has a comedy album on 604 records (Premature) and won first place in the SiriusXM Top Comic Competition. Happy to have him.

We will find out who in the audience had the worst NYE and will recreate the countdown and celebration for them with all the pomp and circumstance you deserve! If you had a good NYE, now you get two!

- Warm up comedian Sean Devlin!!
- HOUSE BAND Kristy-Lee Audette, Catherine Anne H, Emilor Jayne!!

"There's no funner night out than the monthly Talent Time." - - The Georgia Straight

"Talent Time is the most innovative, raucus, totally silly and inspired show I have seen in years. Watching it is like freebasing sheer fun!"
- - Matthew Hays, Globe & Mail/CBC Arts Online

"A cult phenomenon that’s been flying under the 2008. A true comedy original. Talent Time defies genre. You have to experience it to truly appreciate it." - Guy MacPherson, The Georgia Straight
