Our pal Patrick Maliha is known for his giggle-inducing one liners, gut-busting stand up, and his contribution to the local comedy scene as event organizer and Urban Laughs founder. In just a few weeks he’s hosting another event at Darby’s on West Fourth and this time it’s to help out friend and colleague Jennifer Thomson.
“Just this past summer, Vancouver radio personality and all around great gal Jennifer Thomson was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and has been unable to work since the diagnosis. So we’ve all decided to get together and give her a little benefit show.”
The show will take place November 24th at 9:00pm and tickets are $10. Patrick Maliha will be the evening’s MC and other comedians donating their time include CTV’s Marke Driesschen, Canada’s Next Top Comic finalist Art Factora, Dr. Russ Kennedy, Mike Wolfe, Greg Kettner and Sean Proudlove.
I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time with Jennifer (albeit we were screaming while ziplining on Grouse Mountain months ago) and I encourage others to support this benefit as well, for the sake of her and her young son.
You can call (604) 731-0617 to make reservations, confirm your attendance on Facebook, or show up on the 24th to support this benefit.
