Vancouver is about to experience the worst winter in 50 years. Start the year on the right foot with a show *scientifically guaranteed* to increase your well being. Come fight the winter blues with the first Talent Time of 2017! (As always, conveniently located on the first Thursday of the month – January 5, 2017.)
Says intrepid host Paul Anthony about the show, “I would love to turn the stage into a giant sandbox and do the whole show in bare feet, but that might not be allowed… I’m just working on booking it now, not much is confirmed but I’m gonna approach some tanning salons, maybe get some tanning beds… can you watch a show from inside a tanning bed? At the Biltmore we used to light the audience with Light Therapy Lamps for a natural buzz. The Rio is much bigger but I think I can at least set up a section that will bathe people in much needed vitamin D. You know those Facebook friends, who always seem to be posting photos from tropical locations while you’re at home wet and cold? Maybe we could do a photo booth that riffs of that? I’m just spitballing some ideas here but SAVE THE DATE. It’ll be a great show! Featuring a nice mix of comedy, song, dance, weirdness, medical professionals and an overall feeling of celebration!”
