An evening of comedy in Mission

The Stage will host a special comedy night on May 27

Fraser Valley Comedy and The Stage are presenting Laugh Out Loud, an evening of stand-up comedy on Saturday, May 27.

Graham Clark headlines the show. One of the most sought-after comics in the country, Clark has performed at Montreal’s famed Just For Laughs, and the Winnipeg, Halifax, and JFL Northwest comedy festivals countless times, and made more guest appearances on CBC Radio’s The Debaters than any other act.

He has also made stops at the Edinburgh Festival, filmed several comedy specials, been seen on HBO’s Funny As Hell, was winner of the Yuk Yuks Great Canadian Laugh Off, and won three Canadian Comedy Awards as co-host of Maximum Fun’s Stop Podcasting Yourself.

Clark is also the creator of beardpaintings.com, where he sells paintings made using his beard as a paintbrush and donates the proceeds to charity.

Kevin Banner opens the show. The first comedian signed to Chad Kroeger’s 604 Records, Banner has quickly established himself as a rising talent in Canadian comedy, performing with such notable comedians as Colin Quinn, Bill Burr and Norm MacDonald.

Banner is a regular at The Comedy Mix and a past winner of Bite TV’s Stand Up and Bite Me People’s Champ. He has made appearances at The Northwest Comedy Fest, Just For Laughs Northwest, Pemberton Music Festival and Bumbershoot.

His self-professed “dark” sense of humour, nicely balanced by his personable storytelling and self-effacing charm, will leave you laughing at everything from the mundane to the grotesque.

Harry Doupe is one of the veterans of the Canadian comedy scene, and is a Fort Langley native. Doupe will emcee the show, which begins at 9 p.m. at The Stage, located at 32998 First Ave.
