Canada’s favourite late-night host, George Stroumboulopoulos, is bringing his hit CBC show out to Vancouver for a few days next month.

The last time Strombo landed out West there was an overwhelming response for tickets to his shows where he interviewed Betty Fox, Heritage Minister James Moore, the Sedin twins, Raine Maida and more.

The Hour at CBC Vancouver

While his guests for April 11th and 12th have yet to be announced, tickets to the show are a hot commodity and only available online through an application form.

Luckily, there are two spots saved for a lucky contest winner and their guest who will get to attend the April 11th taping. Here’s how you can enter to win a spot in George’s audience:

  • Leave a comment on this post listing your favourite past guest (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win tickets to see @Strombo film his show in #Vancouver from @miss604

    I will draw one winner at random from all entries Friday, April 1st at 2:00pm. By entering the contest you confirm that you have read and understood the audience regulations for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight as outlined here.

    In case you missed the announcement a few weeks ago, George was also recently appointed Canada’s first ambassador to the United Nations World Food Programme. You can catch him in Vancouver again this May when he speaks at the EPIC Sustainable Living Expo.
