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. This show will sell out.
GIANTS is more than just a live show, it is a collaboration between some of Vancouver’s best comedic talents. The latest video offering created by Weekend Leisure, features the uber-talented Canadian Comedy Award nominee: Morgan Brayton
Morgan Brayton was the inspiration for Nicholas Cage’s classic films, National Treasure and National Treasure 2: More Treasure. If you didn’t know that, you may recognise her from her hit shows Raccoonery and Girls Like Me which were both highly acclaimed and highly nominated. If you’re even further under a rock than anticipated, you may know her from The Vancouver Comedy Festival, , or local stages like The Hero Show, Girls Girls Girls, and Paul Anthony’s Talent Time. If by chance you cannot see, you may remember her voice from CBC’s The Debaters. I’m just saying, she’s the funniest person in
my the room on a regular basis.
The November 26th GIANTS show also 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), Ben McGinnis (CTV, Comedy Now), Pump Trolley (Chicago Sketch Fest, Music Waste), 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.
