Canada’s quadriplegic comedian performing in Hope

Ryan Lachance is known as the ‘sit-down stand-up’ comic

Canada’s ‘sit-down stand-up comic’ is coming to Hope.

Ryan Lachance will headline a night of laughter, hosted by Fraser Valley Comedy at Silver Chalice Pub on Jan. 18, at 8 p.m.

Lachance is a pro comedian living with quad-spastic cerebral palsy, who has rocked stages across Canada for two decades, and has performed alongside some of the biggest names in comedy. He’s a hilarious storyteller and seasoned performer, who incorporates notes from his unique perspective as a quadriplegic comic who can’t stand up — but who does stand-up.

He spins his intensely personal anecdotes from his family life and the challenges he faces into highly entertaining and memorable performances. A regular at the Comedy Mix, Yuk Yuks and Lafflines, Lachance has established himself as a staple of the Vancouver Comedy Scene, and has toured throughout Western Canada.

Mike Greenwood will also take the stage as part of the evening’s entertainment.

Greenwood and his unique energy has been featured on the Northwest Comedy Fest and can be seen in the upcoming Just For Laughs Northwest, as well as touring Western Canada. He has recorded a set for the Yuk Yuks / 604 Records, called Great Canadian Comedy Rumble, available on iTunes, as well as producing and performing across the Greater Vancouver area with Big Laughs Comedy.

The comedy night is hosted by Yo Trieu of Fraser Valley Comedy.

For reservations and ticket information, visit the Silver Chalice or call 604-869-0576.
