Comedian Roman Danylo hosts The Ultimate Comedy Show at the Surrey Arts Centre on Feb. 2

Comedian Roman Danylo returns to the Surrey Arts Centre on Feb. 2, this time as the host of The Ultimate Comedy Show – an epic evening of sketch, stand-up and improv.

Featuring sketch comedy by Not Available in Canada, stand-up comedy by Toby Hargrave, and comedy with music by Good To Know People (Jason Bryden and David Milchard), this variety show finishes with all the acts participating in a fast-paced and completely spontaneous improv comedy jam.

Danylo has appeared in several Canadian TV series including CTV’s ‘Corner Gas’, and CBC’s ‘Just For Laughs’ and ‘Made in Canada’. He also starred in ‘Comedy Inc.’, the long running sketch comedy series on CTV and Spike TV. He won a Leo Award for his performance in CBC’s ‘Western Alienation Comedy Hour’. Danylo will soon be seen in Show Me Some Funny. Premiering on W network, Danylo helms this new hybrid that is both a reality show and comedy show wrapped into one laugh-out-loud half-hour.

Danylo was on the Surrey stage a year ago for CSI: Surrey, a sketch comedy revue.

Not Available in Canada consists of members of Canadian Content (winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Sketch Group), and the stars of the CBC sketch comedy series ‘The 11th Hour’ (which The National Post called “The funniest sketch show since SCTV”). With sold out shows in the US and overseas, Canada’s comedy dream team is back, and looking forward to working with new material from ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Futurama’ comic books writer, Ian Boothby.

Stand-up comedian Toby Hargrave has performed at the Vancouver and Whistler Comedy Festivals, the Atomic Comedy Festival in Washington State, and The Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. He was voted the ‘Funniest Comedian in Vancouver’ at the 2005 Vancouver Comedy Festival, and has appeared at notable comedy clubs across North America including Yuk Yuks, The Laugh Shop, The Comedy Mix, The Improv, The Comedy Store, and The Laugh Factory.

It’s Good to Know People with Chris Wes and Bev PoCock (played by Jason Bryden and David Milchard) is Vancouver’s only people-positive musical duo! They make people laugh without making fun. Get ready to love, laugh and learn with Chris and Bev. It’s Good to Know People has been featured on CBC Radio’s ‘The Debaters’, at Yuk Yuks comedy club, and at the CanWest Comedy Festival.

The Ultimate Comedy Show starts at 8 p.m. The show contains mature content.

Tickets are $27 and $30, available by calling 604-501-5566 or online.
