Vancouver Sketch Comedy Fest, The Bros. Landreth & WAREHAUS Dance Collective

This week really is eclectic as we share some laughs at the Vancouver SketchFest, get a little country with the Bros. Landreth, and are introduced to one of Vancouver’s newest dance companies.

Three days of hilarity begin as Peter ‘n Chris host the opening night extravaganza, followed by performances from groups like Montreal’s Ladies & Gentlemen, winners of the best local troupe award at the 2014 Montreal SketchFest, plus local favourites including Morgan Brayton, Instant Theatre Company, Hip.Bang!, and lots more.

The Ryan and Amy Show are one of the many groups at his year's Vancouver SketchFest.

Their mix of mid-tempo rockers, butter-smooth ballads and cowboy lullabies is sure to please their fans and introduce their unique sound to a whole new audience.

The Bros. Landreth really does consist of two real-life brothers, David and Joey.
