Jest Ladies comedy show this Friday at Chances Chilliwack

The Fraser Valley Comedy show is this Friday, July 14 at Chances Chilliwack starting at 8 p.m.

Fraser Valley Comedy will once again be bringing a lineup of all-female comedians to Chilliwack for its next show featuring Amber Harper-Young and Melanie Rose.

The event, Jest Ladies, is this Friday, July 14 at Chances Chilliwack starting at 8 p.m.

Harper-Young was a finalist in B.C.’s Funniest Female 2014. Her performing highlights include: The Comics Lounge – Melbourne Australia, The Del Close Marathon NYC (improv), Yuk Yuk’s comedy clubs – Toronto/Ottawa/Vancouver, and various other comedy clubs and touring shows across Canada.

In 2015, she co-created/co-hosted and performed in a live series of Tragedy Comedy Shows at Yuk Yuk’s. She also co-hosts Vancouverite, an independent monthly show that was selected to be a part of the Just For Laughs NorthWest Comedy Festival in 2016.

Harper-Young’s absurd colourful style of self-deprecating comedy is based on her upbringing and adult life.

Melanie Rose is truly a rose thriving on the thorny side of life. For close to a decade she has made light of the heaviest of issues in the Vancouver comedy scene and in comedy venues across Canada.

Whether in a club, festival or on television she wows audiences with raw, honest insights on love, marriage, addiction, mental illness and trials of middle-class single mother’s life. She was featured on the critically acclaimed APTN show She Kills Me, performed at Am Woman! Hear Me Laff!, Victoria’s Funny Women’s Festival and Victoria International Buskers Festival.

In addition to her standup comedy, Rose is dedicated sharing her journey with others to help remove the stigmas attached to addiction and mental health. In 2015, she envisioned and produced Medicated, a crazy night of comedy in Victoria to raise funds for Victoria Cool Aid Society. She has also been invited to perform for Public Health Association of BC, Pacific Blue Cross, Correctional Services and numerous medical health professional associations.

Also performing that night will be Susan Thompson, Margo Prentice, Ericka Young, Cari Norton Moore, Helena Paul and Lisa Person.

Jest Ladies is Friday, July 14 at 8 p.m. at The Well Public House inside Chances Chilliwack. No cover. The event is festival-style seating, so come early to secure your favorite seat.
