Top comedians visit Chilliwack

Fraser Valley Comedy kicks off new locale with Boyz Meet World Comedy Tour

Chilliwack, get ready to laugh, giggle, chuckle, and crack up as two of B.C.’s top performers hit the stage at the Fraser Valley Comedy (FVC) club’s Boyz Meet World Comedy Tour on Thursday, Dec. 7.

For the first time at its new downtown venue, The Wellington Social House, FVC has brought in B.C.’s top funny men Dave Merheje and Chris Griffin. Griffin won last year’s Great Canadian Laugh Off at Yuk Yuks in Vancouver, and Merheje’s made appearances at comedy festivals all across the country. He was recently cast in season seven of CBC’s Mr. D.

“Having Dave come to Chilliwack is a real treat. And we’re so excited to be at The Wellington Social House,” says Yo Trieu, who founded FVC in 2015. “It’s the best room in town for these type of shows.”

Fraser Valley Comedy got its start in 2015 at the Rosedale Bar & Grill, and quickly became a regular stop for local comedians looking to perform and build up their experience. And the more people who came, the larger FVC became: growing from free shows, to selling out performances, to hosting shows at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The Boyz Meet World Comedy Tour also features gut-busting comedians Mike Honkawa, Mike Haire, Helena Paul, and Cari Norton Moore, who will be sure to tickle audience funny bones.

Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. It’s festival-style seating, so arrive early to secure your spot. Tickets are available at the door for $15.
