Deep in the Heart of Vancouver


The Fish are returning to the Heart of the City Festival for first time since 2009 for a free night of comedy on Friday Oct. 25 at the Gallery Gachet. By coincidence, the festival, which is an annual showcase for the art and diversity of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community, is also celebrating its tenth anniversary. (Clearly 2003 was very good year).

Here are the details:

Friday October 25, 7pm–9pm
Gallery Gachet, 88 E. Cordova

The Heart of the City Festival is tickled silly to present an evening of stand up and sketch comedy that celebrates the resilience and diversity of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The first half of the evening features comics from Stand Up for Mental Health with guest host Randy Goodchild and our local favourite funny guy Paul Decarie. What’s so funny about mental health? Come and find out!

The second half of the evening we are thrilled to welcome back Vancouver’s longest-running Asian-Canadian sketch comedy collective, Assaulted Fish (aka Diana Bang, Marlene Dong, Kuan Foo and Nelson Wong). With edgy writing and energetic performances, everything from birth to reincarnation is fair game for the comedy troupe. Assaulted Fish is delighted to celebrate its 10th anniversary with the 10th Annual Heart of the City Festival.
