Comedy on Wheels: Celebrating Canada’s Birthday with Belly Laughs enjoyed a SOLD OUT run May 18-20, 2017 (Performance Works).
Showcasing a cast of 16 outstanding community members along with UK-based special guest comic Tanyalee Davis plus the four-piece Comedy on Wheels band, Comedy on Wheels poked fun at Canadian politics, Vancouver transit, and some of the more outrageous yet common misconceptions about disability. Together, we united in laughter, dissolved barriers, and strengthened bonds.
