Shining the theatre light on the best of Vancouver’s comedic underground.
On November 26th, GIANTS Comedy and The Cultch are proud to present the second of six instalments of this first-of-its-kind project uniting the best of Vancouver’s comedy scene with the ambition and professionalism of the local theatre community. After a sold out premiere, GIANTS’ sophomore show features a mix of sketch, and stand-up culminating Vancouver’s first comedic rap battle where a dozen of our funniest comedians will twist rap battles with pro wrestling type characters to make one MASSIVELY entertaining experience that we at Vancouver is Awesome are proud to be media sponsors of.
The first video release features a fixture of Vancouver’s comedy scene, and host of GIANTS rap batter: Taz VanRassel.
For years this city has suffered from a drought of venue options. Many of the comedy scene’s most beloved spaces are considered illegal, and few possess even basic technical components. Seeking to bring the talent and hilarity of Vancouver’s comedians into the public eye, The Cultch and the team behind GIANTS offer a showcase of the city’s finest jokers in the recently-renovated Culture Lab where audiences can see the cities best in one place. Bridging the gap between Vancouver theatre and comedy audiences, GIANTS is Saturday night comedy on the mainstage.
The November 26th GIANTS show includes some of the golden boys and girls of the scene, many of whom have never shared the stage. Guests include: Rap Battle MC Taz VanRassel (The Sunday Service, Vancouver Theatresports), Morgan Brayton (Raccoonery/Pick of the Fringe), Pump Trolley (The Sketch Show), Alicia Tobin (City TV’s The List), as well as a slew of surprise Vancouver celebrity comedians battling one another in rhyming hip-hop parody.
GIANTS II is not to be missed.
Location: The Vancity Culture Lab 1895 Venables Street
