BELLY LAUGHS, A NIGHT OF COMEDY for 10th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2013 in Vancouver on Oct 25 2013

Comedy
BELLY LAUGHS, A NIGHT OF COMEDY
Friday October 25, 7pm – 9pm
Gallery Gachet, 88 E. Cordova

The Heart of the City Festival is tickled silly to present an evening of stand up and sketch comedy that celebrates the resilience and diversity of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The first half of the evening features comics from Stand Up for Mental Health with guest host Randy Goodchild and our local favourite funny guy Paul Decarie. What’s so funny about mental health? Come and find out! The second half of the evening we are thrilled to welcome back Vancouver’s longest-running Asian-Canadian sketch comedy collective, Assaulted Fish (aka Diana Bang, Marlene Dong, Kuan Foo and Nelson Wong). With edgy writing and energetic performances, everything from birth to reincarnation is fair game for the comedy troupe. Assaulted Fish is delighted to celebrate its 10th anniversary with the 10th Annual Heart of the City Festival. Free

This event was on  Day 3 of  the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!

The Festival is thrilled to partner with the DTES’s AHA Media to provide social media coverage (video/photos/blog) of the Heart of the City Festival. AHA Media gives voice to our local community and provides services for individuals and organizations to share their news and special events on a broader scale through social media. Founded in 2008 by local artists April Smith, Hendrik Beune, and Al Tkatch, AHA Media previously collaborated with Fearless City Media and has an ongoing working relationship with W2Community Media Arts and various other organizations and individuals in the DTES community. The members of AHA Media describe themselves as “definitely not mainstream media”. Based in Vancouver’s DTES, their style is described as non-invasive and unassuming.
