Two comedy shows support food bank

Shows will include performances by Funny Brothers Improv and John Cullen

Two comedy shows on May 2 will keep audiences laughing while supporting the Abbotsford Food Bank.

The shows will be held at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way).

At 4 p.m. the family-friendly Funny Brothers Improv group will perform an all-ages show with musical guest and chart-topping-pop-sensation Marika. Tickets are $10 in advance of $30 for a family of four.

At 8 p.m., a full night of comedy will feature Robyn Roukema, Cliff Prang, Tia Glenn-Cooke and headliner, high school teacher and world-ranked curler John Cullen.

Cullen has released a stand-up special called Someone Else’s Special, which was filmed last March and released in October. Prang is an alumni to the Canadian Improv Games, VancouverTheatreSports League, the Panic Squad Improv Comedy and currently performs with Funny Brothers Improv.

Tickets to that show are $15 in advance.

Tickets and details are available at www.2comedyshows.eventbrite.ca or at Spruce Collective in Abbotsford.

Proceeds from the event will support the food bank’s ‘Heroes for Hope’ year-long family sponsorship program as well at the “Starfish” weekend food backpack program for kids.
