Experience what the Vancouver Sun hailed as a, “phenomenon” and caused the Georgia Straight to proclaim, “There is no funner night out!”
Paul Anthony’s Talent Time is a live comedy/variety/talk show and TV program that occurs live at the Rio Theatre on the first Thursday of every month and airs both locally on Novus TV and internationally on Amazon Prime Video.
As always, The Christmas Special is the most outrageous and joyous show of the year. There will be snow falling from the ceiling while children of all ages sing and dance to the sounds of the season!
With the untimely death of “Teen Pop sensation” I, Kandee, the role of “Old Santa” lies vacant. Watch us audition too many potential Santas in front of your very eyes! There will be no shortage of Santas from favourites like Cool Santa and Secret Santa, to new and exciting ones like Macho Man Randy Santa, the Human Santa-pede, and many more!

“Talent Time is the most innovative, raucus, totally silly and inspired show I have seen in years. Watching it is like freebasing sheer fun!”
– – Matthew Hays, Globe & Mail/CBC Arts Online
“A cult phenomenon that’s been flying under the radar…since 2008. A true comedy original. Talent Time defies genre. You have to experience it to truly appreciate it.” – Guy MacPherson, The Georgia Straight
