Headliner: Chris Gordon
"Chris Gordon is Canada's next, great comedian. He is hysterical in every way." - Adrian Todd Zuniga, Literacy Death Match
There is no other comedian today who is providing such a unique, original and innovative approach to comedy and audience interaction as Chris Gordon. In his first year of comedy Chris hit the airwaves nationally, as he was selected as the "#1 Pick in the Country" on CBC's "So You Think You’re Funny?" Chris Gordon’s originality continues to make an impact: from his break out performances at the Just For Laughs Festivals in Montreal and Toronto; the Seattle International Comedy Competition; Vancouver's NorthWest Comedy Festival; being featured in the Toronto showcase of NBC's Last Comic Standing; and at The Hot Tub show in Los Angeles; his appeal is undeniable.
Chris’ style of comedy has been described as "very unusual (as usual) and very funny... it's what really sets him apart from the pack". He is seen as clean, current, hip, inventive, and edgy, which gives him an improvisational feel and a strong connection with the crowd. Offering fresh perspectives woven seamlessly with absurd observations, Chris always delivers a dynamic interactive experience that is hilarious and unforgettable.
"One of the weirdest comics in the country. The infectious goofiness of Chris Gordon is a thing to behold... a one-of-a-kind experience." - Guy MacPherson, The Georgia Straight
"Chris Gordon... both delights and frightens the audience with his manic, unconventional style." - Fast Forward Weekly
Opening Act: Leah Scheitel
