Simon King brings his high energy

Stand-up comic Simon King lends his talents to a Surrey fundraiser.

For those in need of a good laugh on Nov. 19 – after the dry business of casting votes in the municipal election – Surrey’s Royal Canadian Theatre Company (RCTC) is offering a fundraising evening of comedy with stand-up star Simon King, starting at 8:30 p.m. at the Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72 Ave.)

Praised by comic icon Robin Williams as “truly a gifted comedian,” Surrey-raised King (who has had specials on CTV, HBO and the Comedy Network and played many major North American comedy venues) is known for maniacally frenetic performances and sharp, edgy, socially conscious material drawn from his singular – and hilarious – point of view.

Tickets for the 19-and-up mature content show are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, with proceeds benefiting the RCTC membership program.

For reservations, call 604-594-2700.
