It’ll be an all-women lineup of acts for the next Fraser Valley Comedy show in Chilliwack.
Jest Ladies Comedy, featuring Katie-Ellen Humphries and Kate Belton, takes place Nov. 18 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The event is hosted by Nic Enright-Morin and will feature special performances by Katrina Bennett and Megan Milton.
Humphries is a standup comedian, writer and sketch performer whose comedy has been featured on CTV, CBC, CMT, Winnipeg Comedy Festival and OUT-TV and whose comedy album Ladyfinger debuted in the top five on iTunes in 2020.
With a sensibility that falls somewhere between the library and the locker-room she has become a favourite of audiences across Canada and the U.S., including regular appearances on CBC Radio’s The Debaters where she has additionally worked as a writer and associate producer.
Humphries is also a three-time Canadian National Open Water 5-kilometre Swimming Champion. That’s unrelated to comedy, but it explains the shoulders.
Belton is a standup comedian living in Kelowna known for her sweet and silly stage presence. She produces an aptly named monthly comedy show called “Silly Sally” which sells out every month at Bernie’s in Kelowna.
She has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with comedy greats including Nikki Payne, Jon Dore and in 2022 and 2023 Kate was featured on the CBC LOL hosted by Ali Hassan.
Belton loves animals, hates uncomfortable clothing and still can’t afford to get her lashes done but hopefully next year it’ll happen.
Jest Ladies Comedy, featuring Katie-Ellen Humphries and Kate Belton is on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre in the Rotary Hall Studio.
Tickets are $35 and available at the Centre Box Office or at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW (7469).
NOTE: This is an 18+ show and contains explicit language and subjects. Lineup can change without notice.
