“If this show isn’t the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen, then you watched it wrong.” states the shows master of ceremonies, Roman Danylo.


Hysterically funny, this group of comedians will have you rolling in the aisles with a combination of sketch, stand-up, and improv. Danylo, accompanied by Canadian award winning comedians from popular shows such as The 11th Hour, Comedy Inc. and Just for Laughs, will have you begging for mercy.




The shows founder, Roman Danylo is a headlining stand-up comedian, a top Canadian improviser, and a regular TV superstar, appearing on CTV’s Comedy Inc., Corner Gas, CBC’s Just For Laughs, Made in Canada and The Debaters. Living up to his award-winning reputation, including a Leo Award and two Gemini nominations for his performance in Comedy Inc., Roman Danylo delivers a hilarious show with quick wit and high energy.


As part of the show, Not Available In Canada takes to the stage bringing the hilarious world of sketch comedy to the performance headlined by famous comic book writer and comedian Ian Boothby. Boothby is the writer for anything The Simpsons & Futurama that isn't the TV shows and his comedy has won the Shuster Award, Harvey Award, Eisner Award, Jesse Richardson Award for theatre, and a Canadian Comedy Award.


The monumental creativity of Boothby, his most recent work just completed... an animated special for the Cartoon Network called Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy, is once again shared with fans in these absurd sketches. As winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for “Best Sketch Group”, starring in the CBC’s comedy series The 11th Hour (which Boothby created, co-wrote and starred in) and the Comedy Network’s Suckerpunch, Canada’s hilarious comedy dream team is sure to delight the audience when take the stage.


Voted the funniest Comedian in the Vancouver Comedy Festival, stand-up comedian sensation Tony Hardgrave puts on a hysterical performance as he tag teams with the rest of the superstars. A skilled storyteller, Hardgrave exaggerates the truth, connecting with the audience in an amusing familiar way. Bringing his notable experience from some of the top North American comedy festivals, including the Vancouver Comedy Festival, Whistler Comedy Festival, Atomic Comedy Festival in Washington State and Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival he cracks up the crowd with his riotous humor. 


Bringing music to the show It’s Good to Know People, Vancouver's only people-positive musical duo, are the characters Chris Wes and Bev PoCock played by Jason Bryden and David Milchard. You’ll be sure to recognize comedic sensation Bryden as he is all over TV these days, most notably in the Poker Lotto commercials.  Prepare to love, laugh and learn as they let you inside their hysterically funny lives, making people laugh without making fun with their twisted musical comedy.  


Positive vibrations are heading your way with this dynamic duo who have appeared all over the Pacific Northwest. Chris and Bev have left audiences howling, from the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle to the Vancouver Fringe Festival on Granville Island to their very own It’s Good to Know People Variety Show.  Having entertained on CBC Radio’s Debaters, Yuk Yuks and the CanWest Comedy Festival these guys will have you in stitches with their cheery folk tunes and joyful sing-alongs.


The show tops things off with the acts merging together to perform in an epic improv jam. A unique version of the cutting edge, long-form style of improv called The Harold is hatched, deliciously entertaining the crowd. This fast paced, completely spontaneous improv, made famous in the clubs and theatres of New York, Chicago and L.A and fine-tuned locally by “Urban Improv” in Kitsilano, will thrill the audience with its unpredictability. Based on audience suggestions, the comedians will create a theme which molds their comedy into a series of rapid-fire one-liners, resulting in a totally unpredictable set of incredibly hilarious skits.
