Comedy on the Verge at the Overlander Pub
Comedy On The Verge is thrilled to again partner with The Overlander Pub to bring comedy to Williams Lake.
Join them on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. as they transform The Overlander Pub into Williams Lake’s best comedy club.
Headliner Steve McGowan is a likeable guy and a commanding comedian who brings an extra dose of fun and excitement any time he takes the stage. It’s been three years since he last brought the party to Williams Lake, and it’s better than ever.
Steve cheekily mixes stories of the day-to-day with tales of past relationships and the single life in tongue-in-cheek observations of the world that audiences can’t get enough of. Open, honest, and slightly frat boy, Steve’s comedy feels like a party where everyone is welcome. Steve has performed across North America, including appearances on Slice Network and Global TV.
Don’t forget feature comedian Caleb Campbell – a wild man and a born storyteller. His lovable charm will engage and entertain you with unexpected tales and thoughts. Caleb is a Comedy Bloodsport champion and a favourite at The Okanagan Comedy Festival.
The night is hosted by Andrew Verge, the lead comedian with Comedy On The Verge and a recent feature with the Canada Comedy Jam comedy tour.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tickets available on Eventbrite.ca or at The Overlander Pub.
