BARNEY BENTALL, TOM TAYLOR, AND SHARI ULRICH…

Bobbie's Comedy Night w/ James Kennedy

Super excited to have James Kennedy back as the Headliner. He is one of my favourites! This is one you don't want to miss.

Winner of the 2014 peoples champ of comedy and the 2014 Vancouver Yuk-off. This dynamic comic turns heads immediately with his kinetic performance and infectious energy. The unique style and irrepressible showmanship that took this "one to watch" from his first open mic to touring Headliner in 2 years, leaves audiences in stitches and earned him spots on the Northwest Comedy Fest, 2015 ZooFest in Montreal and the 2015 Calgary Co...more info
