CANS Festival II : Distinguished, Rushed Comedy since 2018 - Hosted by Blind Tiger Comedy and Little Mountain Comedy Department
Cans Festival is BACK. Cans Festival II will feature six brand-new shows created by world-class comedians in less than a week based on you the internet's bullshitty suggestions. It's just like Cannes...in name only.
These stage productions will debut in back-to-back prestige events on Friday April 19th: the 7:30pm Opening Gala and the 9:30pm Closing Gala & Awards Show.
A dream team list of creators is not fooling in any way. Each of these artistic leaders will produce a 20 minute show to debut at Cans:
Pippa Mackie and Tom Hill
Ryan Beil & Mark Chavez
Stacey McLachlan & Jordan Potter
Ronald Dario & Patrick Dodd
White Noise, a curious comedy by Taran J. Kootenhayoo
This workshop production is produced by Savage Society.
When the Mannings notice that new neighbours have moved in next to their Point Grey home, they invite them over for dinner. Drama and comedy ensue as a Denesuline & Nakoda Sioux family try to find common ground with the yoga/ corporate Point Grey family, the Mannings. Tensions rise as internalized racism surfaces. White Noise poses the question, how do we deal with internalized racism? Do we keep pushing it away and pretend to live safety in our day to day?
