The Butter Chicken gang is coming to Surrey!
If you like your comedy with a pinch of ethnic and a hefty dollop of Bollywood spice, you won’t want to miss I Can’t Believe It’s Not Chicken: The “Best Of” Show, in which Vancouver’s wildly popular South Asian comedy heroes serve up a gut-busting buffet of laugh-till-you-cry, edgy, racy, fast-paced live sketch comedy.
Since 2010, the Butter Chicken gang has satisfied the palates of thousands of theatre-goers in shows like I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken!—The Best Of Show, The Butter Chicken Reloaded, The Butter Chicken’s Back… Alright, and The Fellowship of the Butter Chicken.
For the first time ever, Surrey audiences will be able to savour the spicy comedy without having to venture past the city limits.
The venue for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken: The “Best Of” Show is the Newton Cultural Centre. On the menu: the best-of-the-best bits from the last three Butter Chicken shows. No topic is out of bounds for these comedy crusaders as they act, sing, dance, and Bollywood their brains out in rapidfire skits penned by the Bollywood Shenanigans crew.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken: The “Best Of” Show features Munish Sharma, Leena Manro, Jason Vaisvila, Kallol Mitra, Carmel Amit (all from Vancouver), Sabrina Saran (Burnaby), and Stuart Gray (Surrey) and is presented by South Asian Arts and Bollywood Shenanigans.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken: The “Best Of” Show runs for three days—a total of five shows—from November 15 to 17. Tickets are $20 in advance (plus service charges) or $25 at the door, and can be purchased online athttp://butterchicken. eventbrite.ca or at Kamal’s Video Palace (8268 Scott Road in Surrey).
