On the first Tuesday of every month, Cam MacLeod hosts a tiny tribe of local comedians that veer not too far from the traditional menagerie of comedy. The Hero Show is like an odyssey of one-person sketches with no stand-up at the China Cloud Theatre (located a bit off the beaten path near Chinatown). Once you’re there, you’re bound to have a great time. Especially when you’re going to see acts from the folks of Knights of the Night, whose comedy is like all the best of music and chivalry put together, and Bronx Cheer. Highlights include Craig Anderson’s “Dan Brown Only Wears One Outfit” and Emmett Hall’s “giant news anchor” sketch.
MacLeod, the congenial host and comedy curator for the Olio Festival, is also a part of a collection of comedy acts including ManHussy, a Vancouver-based comedy group, and helped write and produce the Mental Beast series as well. So if you happen to be in the Chinatown hood, check out this awesome comedy show, featuring Graham Clark, Emmett Hall, Devon Lougheed, Kaitlyn Fontana, Colin Cowan, Conor Holler, Craig Anderson and many more! Be prepared for waves of hilarious sketches peppered with offstage banter, not to mention some quality local art. I really can’t imagine this not being a good time.
