BIG NEWS AFOOT - The WHY? Hip.Bang! Show Debuts Apr 19
Look out, Vancouver.
After a very successful run with The Hip.Bang! Show at Mr. Brownstone, we are excited to announce that going forward we’re combining our weekly show with the mic-wielding geniuses over at WHY? Stand-Up. Jacob Samuel and Jordan Cohen have been producing exceptional shows packed with the city’s-best comedians every month, and we couldn’t resist: a new, sexy collaboration has been born.
The new show, that we are calling The WHY? Hip.Bang! Show (see what we did there?) will bring something new to the table. Stand-up and improv will mingle as we combine the unique vibe Jacob and Jordan put off with the Hip.Bang! cocktail that is Tom, Devin, and our music man Bryan Nothling.
More detail to come but for now mark your calendars: April 17, 2013 The WHY? Hip.Bang! Show debuts!
