Event Description

When Chris Gordon isn’t telling jokes to people for money, he has a steady schedule of making out with babes and driving sports cars fast. He has made an impact: from his break out performances at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and Andy Kindler's Alternative Show in Vancouver; being featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing; to losing his virginity ?on June 16th 2:52am… 2019; his (sex) appeal is undeniable. "Gordon lives so in the moment that each individual show becomes a legendary 'you had to be there' night, leaving his fans collecting his individual show stories like badges." - Beatroute Magazine In his first year of comedy Chris was selected as the #1 pick in Canada on CBC's "So You Think You Are Funny" and can also be heard on CBC's “LOL”. He recently appeared at the Hot Tub show in LA, San Francisco Sketch Fest, New Orleans Hell Yes Fest and the Red Clay Comedy Festival in Atlanta, Georgia. "One of the weirdest comics in the country. The infectious goofiness of Chris Gordon is a thing to behold... a one-of-a-kind experience." - The Georgia Straight. Guest host, Chris Griffin, is one of comedy’s most dynamic storytellers. After winning his regional round of the Great Canadian Laugh Off during his first year of comedy, Chris did something crazy. He quit his full time job, sold his house and hit stages across North America doing what he loves best – drinking and making people laugh. It was a gamble that has paid off. His move to Vancouver has brought a ton of success for Griffin, including winning 1st place in Vancouver’s Yuk Yuk’s Competition, being one of the only Canadian comics to ever make the finals of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, performing every year at the Just For Laughs Northwest Festival and sharing the stage with notable comics such as Norm Macdonald, Doug Stanhope, Tom Papa, Ari Shaffir and Bert Kreischer. 2018 is already off to a great start as Griffin was nominated three times and took home one award in the inaugural Vancouver Comedy Awards. Griffin is recording his second full length comedy special Live at the Biltmore in Vancouver on October 18th over two shows.
