In December, The Comedy Department brings holiday cheer to the Vancouver’s The Show Cellar, 1755 Davie Street and Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre, 1205 Pinetree Way, with Holiday Comedy Rumble: Every Elf for Themselves.
A one-of-a-kind comedy competition Holiday Comedy Rumble: Every Elf for Themselves, promises to swap the ho-ho-ho’s with boisterous ha-ha-ha’s as audiences witnesses some candy-cane chaos
The Comedy Departments takes off the comedic gloves as its world-class improv comedians battle it out to determine who will wear the coveted Santa suit next year. When the big guy finally decides to take a well-deserved season off to work on his tan in Palm Springs, the North Pole’s top elves will duke it out in a merry-making battle. Who will be crowned HEAD JOY-MAKER and take the coveted position of squeezing down the chimney and bringing unbridled glee to children all over the world?
Only the dutiful employees of the North Pole (the audience) will have final say on which elf slays the competition and gets to drive Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve.
“During the holidays, people want to get into the spirit and getting some big laughs is the extra present under the tree from The Comedy Department,” says Comedy Department co-owner, Denise Jones. “A fun, comedic twist on the more traditional offerings this time of year was what we wanted to bring to Lower Mainland audiences. Holiday Comedy Rumble has a ton of audience involvement and participation! And with a cast of some of the best improvisers in Canada, you won’t be finding a lump of coal in your stocking this year!”
Audiences can choose a location, bring their jingle bells, and funny bones be prepared to laugh until cheeks are as rosy as Rudolph’s nose. Holiday Comedy Rumble is sure to deliver some hilarious holiday punchlines and promises to be the comedy event of the season you won’t want to miss.
