Improv comedy night benefits Telecare Crisis and Caring Line

Fundraiser takes place Friday, Nov. 6 in Abbotsford

A night of improv comedy will benefit the local Telecare Crisis and Caring Line on Friday, Nov. 6.

The show, called Whose Phone Line is it Anyway?, takes place at 7 p.m. at Cascade Community Church, 35190 DeLair Rd.

Entertainers Chris Nash, Tia Glenn Cooke, and the Strom Brothers – Taylor, Clark and Eric – first met at Trinity Western University, where they quickly discovered their common love of comedy improv.

The spontaneity of the art appealed to them and they have since put on several events.

Joining the comedians as MC will be Bill Strom, communication professor at Trinity Western University and father of the Strom Brothers, himself a talented ventriloquist.

Telecare Crisis and Caring Line is a ministry that responds to people who are experiencing emotional distress, and offers empathetic listening, exploration of options, and referrals.

Tickets for the improv night are $20 and can be purchased  online at telecarebc.com or by calling 604-852-4058.
