9 Comedy Shows Coming to Vancouver Soon!


It’s been a while since we had live stand-up comedy acts coming to our great city, but that’s all changing. With restrictions easing, we can finally gather and share some laughs at the best comedy venues in the city! Here are 9 comedy shows to check out soon.

1. Hasan Minhaj – November 14 & 15

From ‘The Daily Show’ to ‘Patriot Act’ Hasan has been bringing the laughs for years and his new one man show, “The King’s Jester”, is no exception!  See him at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre this month.

The monthly comedy showcase brings talented comedians to the revamped Hollywood Theatre. DJ Demers headlines the next show on November 29th.


5. Chelsea Handler – January 8th

The podcaster, stand-up comedian, and actor brings the laughs to the Queen Elizabeth theatre in the new year.


7. Trevor Noah – February 26th  

The South African comedian is heading back on tour and Vancouver is on the schedule! Noah will be here as part of JFL Northwest, Vancouver’s annual comedy festival.

8. Joe Rogan – April 20th

Host of one of the most popular and controversial podcasts ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’, the muti-talented stand-up comedian (and big proponent of cannabis), will ‘light up’ Rogers Arena on 4/20.

9. Bill Burr – June 25th

One of comedy’s biggest stars, Bill Burr has multiple Netflix specials, his own Netflix cartoon “F is for Family” and a successful podcast! The comedian is also a huge Boston sports fan so be warned that he will definitely gloat about the Bruins cup win over the Canucks in 2011.

With so much amazing comedic talent coming to our city soon, you'll want to start saving up!
