Comedy Shocker is back with 6ick 6ick 6ick!
Another amazing line up (Maybe the best line up ever) and it's only fitting given that this is our BIGGEST SHOW EVER!
Simon King utterly changes a room when he takes the stage. He is easily described as one of the most powerful, moving and significant comedians working anywhere today. His high energy, aggressive, intelligent and edgy comedy style makes him nothing short of a force of nature. Known for his explosive performance that marries sharp socially conscious material with a keen point of view Simon goes flat out with hilarious and game changing results. A prolific writer and tireless performer he is constantly honing his skills and pushing his own limits often to the tune of over four hundred shows a year. From the middle of everywhere to the middle of nowhere you’re sure to find him screaming the gospel of common sense at the top of his lungs most every night of the week. Equally at home in dive bars and theatres he commands the room, owns the crowd and blows the doors off no matter where he is.
"Wicked fucking funny."
- Doug Stanhope
"Having seen Simon perform many times I have been incredibly impressed with his unique talent. From everything I have seen Simon is truly a gifted comedian."
- Robin Williams
Chris Gaskin is one of western Canada’s fastest rising comedians. Described as, “A destined star,” and “Vancouver’s most underrated comedian,” Gaskin demands audiences attention with his innocent looks, yet sharp tongue. His razor-sharp views on how the world sees him, the hypocritical nature of relationships, and religion have been described as, “brutally honest, yet hysterical.” His debut album, “Lambda Male” can be found on iTunes. He has made appearances at the Northwest Comedy Fest, and FunnyFest. He was a winner of the Champion of Champions Comedy Competition, a 2-time Runner Up in Patrick Maliha’s The People’s Champ of Comedy Competition, a finalist in the 2011 season of Stand Up & Bite Me on Bite TV, and has been featured on Laugh Attack on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Rolling Thunder! Calling all of Western Canada home, Lachance was born in Manitoba, raised in Alberta and moved to Vancouver when he was fifteen. His first show age twenty in a club in the Plaza of Nations and he's been entertaining audiences for over a decade. Lachance has quadspastic cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. He draws comedic inspiration from stories about growing up with disability and the unique perspective on the world that it gives him. Although he calls Vancouver home, Lachance's talent have taken him coast to coast, touring through both Alberta and Nova Scotia. His performances aren't always limited to stand up comedy. He was featured on both Peter White's Late, Live with Peter White show as well as Paul Anthony's Talent Time show. His peers deemed him “The People's Comic” due to the regularity Lachance has performed while sitting in the audience. This dynamic strengthed his conversational style and easy rapport with people. A career highlights so far for Lachance was being honoured to perform for Billy Connelly, one of his favourite comedians. Ryan Lachance is
both honest and hilarious.
Making a big name for himself in Vancouver, Carl Turnbull has been ripping it up every where he goes. Carl was on the November Comedy Shocker show and we just had to have him back! If you've not seen him yet, you'll want to.
San Aung is what happens when you combine a sheltered upbringing with terribly inappropriate parents. He's been performing comedy in some form or another for nearly a decade now and it still hasn't gotten him out of the ghetto. San has however built a reputation for himself in Vancouver as a rising star, and a reliable drinking buddy. You can
catch him at one of his two monthly shows, the Comedy Exhibit at Prado and the Super Secret Table Read.
Follow him at @ComicSans_ for the occasional dispatch from his life.
Take a bad boy and then remove drugs, alcohol, and a willingness to do crime and you begin to have Mark Hughes. Man is he ever angry about the things he can't do anymore, but he's even more angry at the system that put him in that position in the first place! Mark uses his sardonic wit and fearless stage presence to shine a light on the demons that still affect him to this day. There isn't a subject that isn't too taboo. After all, how can your life be taboo? Mark will make you reconsider what you might think of lost causes and second chances, while making you laugh hysterical despite yourself.
He is hosting this show. He doesn't feel like typing anything about himself. Incidentally, it's his birthday show. He accepts cash gifts and blowjobs.
