Patrick Maliha and other comics head to Hope

All about creating a culture of comedy in the Fraser Valley, organizers say

A comedy show this Friday at the Silver Chalice featuring Patrick Maliha promises great interaction with the crowd and too many impressions to count.

Maliha, the official world record holder of the most impressions per minute, will take the stage this Friday at the Silver Chalice Pub. He has performed with Robin Williams, has a one-hour comedy special play on CTV and The Comedy Network.

Hosted by Jordan Ducharme, the show will also feature semi pro comics who perform shorter sets before Maliha. On the bill so far are Rajneesh Dhawan, Colin Lamb, Roman Mancini, Keith Nahanee, Lisa Person and Jake Peterson.

With a mission to build a comedy culture in the Valley one joke at a time, founder of Fraser Valley Comedy Yo Trieu said Maliha is in a class of his own when it comes to interacting with the crowd.

“Honestly Patrick has the best crowd work in North America,” Trieu said, who is working together with pub owner David Mawhinney on the event. “He appeals to the 90-year-old grandma, to the 19-year-old pot smoker.”

David Mawhinney has been bringing comedy acts to Hope since he started running the Silver Chalice Pub two years ago. He said the community has been very supportive and comics enjoy coming to Hope, despite the occasional heckler.

Mawhinney said he hopes to see a full house Friday, adding “the more support we get, the more we can do.”
