Paul Anthony’s Talent Time: New Year’s Eve Show!

Vancouver’s favourite (and only) televised variety show celebrates ACTUAL New Year’s Eve at the Rio Theatre on Friday, December 31.

The evening will begin with a comedy/variety/chat show celebrating all the best and worst of 2021! Past guests have included double dutch skippers, high school drumlines, ping-pong champions, martial artists, animal acts, barbershop quartets and Randy Quaid.

Then the house band will become a wedding band playing your favourite songs from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today!

Followed by a Much Music (style) Video Dance party! VJ’s Ryan Beil and Paul Anthony will keep you partying with great tunes and hilarious videos on the big screen.

We will be celebrating midnight in every time zone with video feeds to correspondents in Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, Winnipeg and finally the big one, live in Vancouver!

Come ring in the New Year with us!
