Roman Danylo’s The Ultimate Comedy Show, which comes to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Oct. 19, consists of all types of humour and some of the best comedy acts in the world.
Featured on CTV’s Corner Gas and CBC’s Just for Laughs and Made in Canada, headlining comedian and master of ceremonies Roman Danylo has been entertaining audiences for 25 years.
“I’ve been a comedian since high school,” said Danylo, owner and operator of his comedy company, The Roman Empire.
“I’ve never had a real job, so these are the only skills I have. There’s no backup plan.”
Joining Danylo in this comedy extravaganza is musical comedy group Mirage.
Described as, “The world’s greatest improvised rock ‘n’ roll band in the world”, Mirage will leave you in fits of laughter with their audience-inspired lyrical melodies, egos, and cool poses.
Danylo will also be joined by sketch comedy group Titmouse, which consists of members of Canadian Content, winners of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Sketch Group, and the stars of CBC sketch comedy series The 11th Hour and Comedy Network series Suckerpunch.
Having performed sold-out shows in San Francisco, Chicago and London, Canada’s comedy dream team returns home to perform new material.
The Ultimate Comedy Show culminates in an epic improv jam featuring all three acts. Fast-paced, spontaneous and based entirely on audience suggestion, this side-splitting routine provides a hilarious conclusion to this travelling festival of comedy.
“It has as much variety as we could possibly pack into one show,” said Danylo.
“If this isn’t the best show you’ve ever seen, you’ve watched it incorrectly.”
The Ultimate Comedy Show takes to the stage Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. Tickets are available through the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). They are $30 for adults, $27 for seniors and $25 for students. Discounts are available for members of the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society.
