Snowed In comedy tour coming back to Alberni

Arj Barker Craig Campbell, Pete Johansson, Dan Quinn and Glenn Wool perform stand-up comedy at Alberni's Capitol Theatre on Jan. 11.

What happens when four top comedians want to spend a month in Western Canada snowboarding?

They combine forces to bring the Snowed in Comedy Tour to a stage near you.

Arj Barker (Jan. 13–Feb. 4), Craig Campbell, Pete Johansson, Dan Quinn and Glenn Wool (Jan. 10–14) come together for a terrific night of stand-up comedy at the Capitol Theatre in Port Alberni on Wednesday. Jan. 11.

During the day the comedians will be hitting the slopes, then the evening playing the best venues western Canada has to offer.

When Quinn wanted to combine his two favorite passions, he came up with the Snowed-in Comedy Tour. The entire tour schedule is built around what ski hills he will be able to hit during the day.

This has been an adventure that he counts himself as blessed to be able to experience.

This is the fourth year of the tour and it continues to grow.

All of the acts are internationally recognized and have received various awards in different countries around the world.

Johansson just taped a comedy special in Amsterdam for Showtime with Russell Peters. Campbell has been selling out theatres in the United Kingdom after his successful performance on the BBC show Michael Macintyre’s Road Show.

The tour features four very different yet all incredibly talented performers with numerous TV and festival credits.

Together they make up a fantastic evening of comedy where everyone will walk away with their own personal favourite.

Tickets are $30.75 each and area available by calling 888-222-6608.

The tour has been sponsored this year by Endeavor, a Vancouver-based snowboard design company.
