Bring Humour to Your Holidays with The Comedy Department’s Holiday Comedy Rumble: Every Elf for Themself

Comedy Department

This December, The Comedy Department is bringing holiday cheer to the West End’s The Show Cellar in Vancouver and to the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam with Holiday Comedy Rumble: Every Elf for Themselves.

This one-of-a-kind comedy competition promises to bring the ha-ha-ha’s to your ho-ho-ho’s as audiences get ready for candy-cane chaos and the funniest holiday season ever

The stage is set, the eggnog is flowing, and the comedic gloves are off as our world-class improv comedians battle it out to determine who will wear the coveted Santa suit next year. When the big guy finally decides to take a well-deserved season off to work on his tan in Palm Springs, the North Pole’s top elves will duke it out in a merry-making battle. Who will be crowned HEAD JOY-MAKER and take the coveted position of squeezing down the chimney and bringing unbridled glee to children all over the world?

Only the dutiful employees of the North Pole (That’s you, the audience!) will have final say on which elf slays the competition and gets to drive Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve.  You decide!

“During the holidays, people want to get into the spirit and getting some big laughs is the extra present under the tree from The Comedy Department,” says Comedy Department co-owner, Denise Jones. “A fun, comedic twist on the more traditional offerings this time of year was what we wanted to bring to Lower Mainland audiences. Holiday Comedy Rumble has a ton of audience involvement and participation! And with a cast of some of the best improvisers in Canada, you won’t be finding a lump of coal in your stocking this year!”
