Bigger names in a bigger venue is sure to drum up bigger laughs with the latest comedy tour to hit town.
OK, Dope is bringing Seattle comedian Bo Johnson to Vernon, live at the Powerhouse Theatre Saturday, Sept. 10. The Washington comedian will be joined by B.C.’s own Dan Duval and Nash Park.
Johnson, who has appeared on Just for Laughs and Comedy Central, is making his B.C. headlining tour performing 16 shows in 13 days.
Doors open for the Vernon show at 7 p.m., before the curtains open at 8.
“One of the best things about being a stand-up comedian is getting to travel to so many different places and share your craft with the people that live there,” Johnson said. “There’s something really special about coming to a town you’ve never been to before, seeing people you’ve never met and, through comedy, connecting with them in a really powerful way.”
Johnson was a big win for the third OK, Dope Stand-up Tour and its founder and host Park is incredibly excited to perform alongside him.
“The whole purpose for this tour from the very beginning was to bring the best comedy I could to parts of the province that don’t normally get to see it,” Park said.
Returning to the tour as well is comedian Duvall, who’s a previous OK, Dope Stand-up Comedy tour alumni who headlined the tour back in April.
