ARTS WHISTLER LIVE!
Comedy Double-Header with Charlie Demers and Ivan Decker
Two stars of Canadian comedy share the stage in a laugh ‘til you cry double-bill! Charlie Demers and Ivan Decker (both favourites from CBC’s “The Debaters”) join forces for a night of side-splitting laughter! Decker’s sharp, smart and observational hilarity paired with the highly silly and highly cerebral Demers makes for a comedy double bill not to be missed!
Postponed until further notice
We are working with the performers’ agent to reschedule this performance and tickets will be honoured for a later date. If a rescheduled date is not possible, then we will confirm a cancellation directly to existing ticket holders and ticket refunds will be made available. If existing ticket holders can’t make a reschedule show, ticket refunds will also be available.
ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
Charlie Demers: Charlie Demers is an author of five books and a stand-up comedian. His collection of essays, Vancouver Special, was shortlisted for the Hubert Evans BC Book Prize for Non-Fiction. He is also the author of The Prescription Errors, The Horrors: An A to Z of Funny Thoughts on Awful Things and The Dad Dialogues co-written with George Bowering. Charlie’s latest book, the novel Property Values, was published in April 2018.
Demers has performed for national television and radio audiences and at the Just for Laughs Festival, and is one of the most frequently returning stars of CBC Radio’s smash-hit comedy show The Debaters. Find out more.
Ivan Decker: Ivan Decker, originally from Vancouver, now Los Angeles- based, is a writer, stand-up comedian and actor, known for his sharp, polished, and multi-layered observational comedy. A force on the scene as one of Canada’s top comedians, Ivan Decker has become a favorite among audiences and comedians alike.
He has performed stand-up comedy across North America and can be seen and heard as a part of the popular CBC radio program “The Debaters”. Most recently, Ivan was named a “Comic To Watch” by TBS at the New York Comedy Festival, and subsequently made his U.S. television debut on “Conan.”
His fun and silly approach to stand up often reveals the humour hiding in the everyday trials of today’s young adult with careful dissection, brilliant timing and intelligent observation.
Ivan’s most recent comedy album “I Wanted to be a Dinosaur” won the 2018 Juno Award for Comedy Album of the Year. It can be heard on all major streaming platforms and is available on iTunes. Find out more.
