Christmas Unplugged @ Oliver Alliance Church | Oliver | British Columbia | Canada

Christmas is not everyone’s favorite season. It can be a hectic and stressful time for a lot of people. But whether you or your neighbors lean more towards Santa or Scrooge, clean comedian Leland Klassen and Christian recording artist Dan Macaulay think everyone needs to hit pause on the stress for an evening and laugh and have some fun. So Leland and Dan knitted together some stand-up comedy, Christmas carols, musical silliness and improv all into one night to create a one of a kind Christmas event unlike anything you’ve ever seen!

Tuesday, December 18 from 6:30 PM –8:30 PM at the Oliver Alliance Church.

Alex Zerbe: The Professional Zaniac @ Venables Theatre | Cawston | British Columbia | Canada

A ​Family ShowTime Series event

With the energy of 1,000 suns, Alex Zerbe moves like a rubber band from one end of the stage to the other. Beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, music and magic are just a few of the things that led Piers Morgan of America’s Got Talent to call this physical comedian, “The total package.”

The “Professional Zaniac,” whoʼs been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzags between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph. Formerly of the award-winning duo Brothers from Different Mothers, Zerbe is a Hacky Sack World Champion, was voted The Pacific Northwest’s Funniest Prop Comic and is a two-time Guinness World Record holder. Heʼs performed everywhere from cruise ships and comedy clubs to prime-time television in three countries, including “Americaʼs Got Talent!” and “Last Comic Standing.
