Paul Myrehaug joins Damonde Tschritter and Toby Hargrave for the Best of the West Comedy Tour at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Nov. 4.

Find out why these comedians claim to be ‘Best in the West’

Damonde Tschritter, Paul Myrehaug and Toby Hargrave bring on the funny at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Nov. 4.

Looking to get your funny bone tickled? The Best of the West Comedy Tour brings the talents of comedians Damonde Tschritter, Paul Myrehaug and Toby Hargrave together on one stage for an unforgettable night of stand-up comedy, Friday, Nov. 4 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

The charisma of these three funnymen will send the audience into contagious fits of laughter with three separate solo acts as well as some cross-over jokes peppered throughout.

Best of the West is not your typical stand-up routine. Tschritter, Myrehaug and Hargrave feed off each other’s energy, heightening each collaborative performance for a unique, engaging and spontaneous experience.

“We do sometimes do jokes and different sketches together as part of the performance,” said Myrehaug. “Touring with three guys is almost like being in a band, but with way less groupies.”

All veterans of the Canadian comedy scene, Myrehaug has entertained troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Kosovo and was the winner of the 2007 Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh Off, while Tschritter was the first Canadian winner of the 2006 Seattle International Comedy Competition, and Hargrave was voted funniest comic in Vancouver at the 2005 International Vancouver Comedy Festival.

“The other boys from the Best of the West are dear, dear friends of mine,” said Myrehaug. “We’ve known each other, toured together and have been friends for close to 10 years… I’ve learned a ton from both of these guys.”

Together the boys deliver 60-to-90 minutes of comedy that leaves audiences pondering their lifestyle choices and the society we live in.

“I’m hoping Vernon will turn that around for us and I’ll finally get the chance to throw a TV out a window of a hotel,” joked Myrehaug.

Tickets to the Best of the West Comedy Tour are $30/adult, $27/senior, $25/student, $5/ eyeGO and can be purchased at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, The show is not suitable for children.
