Vancouver’s Realwheels Theatre is getting into the Canada 150 spirit with Comedy on Wheels: Celebrating Canada’s Birthday with Belly Laughs (May 18-20). Here are five reasons we think you should go:
This disability-inspired comedy variety show combines original stand-up performances, comical scenes, live music, projections, and a few surprises.
A celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial, members of Vancouver’s disability community will tackle some of our country’s most sacred cows and one of our country’s greatest assets, humour.
Making a special appearance in Comedy on Wheels is UK-based, Canadian-born comic Tanyalee Davis. At 3’6″, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy – low to the ground and kind of racy!
All performances are accessible through American Sign Language (ASL) and audio description provided by VocalEye.
“A shared laugh strengthens our bonds and dissolves barriers,” says director Rena Cohen. “Comedy on Wheels will entertain and surprise you with its novel perspective. Prepare to laugh away some of your preconceptions.”
