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.
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 sketch darlings Pump Trolley:
Forget head writers. Pump Trolley Comedy‘s eight person writer-performer team creates each and every sketch together, honing and funny-packing each piece as a group over a six week process that culminates in an all-new revue every two months at their home the China Cloud Theatre.
If you’ve ever seen Pump Trolley you’ll recognize their absurdist humour mixed with an interest in creating tight, refined live sketch. The group is a Vancouver comedy staple but has most recently hosted and headlined the sketch showcases at Music Waste and the Olio Festival, as well as being featured on Paul Anthony’s Talent Time.
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), Morgan Brayton (Raccoonery/Pick of the Fringe), 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.
