Uncle Janes Crystal Queer Improv!

May 17, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Uncle Janes is Vancouver’s freshest improv comedy show for queer-identifying funny folks! Bringing together an ensemble cast of improvisors that aims to provide a safe, supportive environment to perform improv comedy exclusively by those who identify as LGBTQ+.

Hosted by Jill Lockley

What will happen to me if I come to this show?
You will laugh!

What will I laugh at?
An Improv comedy show with scenes inspired by our guest monologist – Jenny Russell – telling real-life stories!

Can I bring my hetero friends?
Everyone/anyone is welcome to attend the show as an audience member! Even your weird uncle! (But please tell him to leave his shaved carrots at home Judy, he can eat his weird salad when he gets home!)

Also, we’ll be having an open jam before the show for any/all queer identifying improvisers! 6pm-7pm at LMG!

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Health officials in British Columbia and nationally have restricted all public gatherings in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 and closed all non-essential businesses.

Little Mountain Gallery is a shared community space and has supported our showrunners in choosing to cancel their performances to encourage social isolation and prevent the spread of this illness.

Our not-for-profit business model relies on regular rentals in the space and, due to these unprecedented circumstances, we are asking for donations to ensure we are able to remain in operation through this pandemic.

Little Mountain Gallery is following the City of Vancouver's updates on this issue.

We'll be updating this message as new information becomes available.

Thanks!
