The teams will have two weeks to prepare their comedy sketches and must incorporate a randomly chosen element into their performance. Celebrity judges will select the winner of the coveted Vancouver RICE BOWL AWARD on May 29 and on the second night (May 30), the audience will vote with their applause for their favorites to determine the PEOPLE’S CHOYS AWARD winner.
This annual event, which sells out every year, serves up multicultural comedy from the outrageous to the absurd to the wildly satirical. It is the 14th year of Vancouver’s Asian Canadian Theatre’s Comedy Night, which the company was founded to produce and the 5th year in its current incarnation as Etch-Your-Sketchoff. Over the years, the Comedy Night has helped launched the careers of Asian-Canadian stand-up comedians and sketch comedy troupes such as Assaulted Fish and Hot Sauce Posse.
The event is hosted by the original Comedy Night Host and funny-man Tom Chin, who has performed as part of Assaulted Fish and Hot Sauce Posse in the past.
Wednesday May 29 + Thursday May 30, 8pm at the Roundhouse Community Arts Centre
Tickets: $20 in advance online (vact.ca), $23 at door (cash only at door)
