Second show for Danny Bhoy

Scottish comedian Danny Bhoy will do a second show at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre this spring, due to overwhelming demand for the first.

The Just For Laughs company has announced that Bhoy will do a second show at the venue on Thursday, April 3, as part of his cross-Canada tour. Tickets are on sale via ticketmaster.ca and 1-855-985-5000.

Bhoy’s April 2 show at the Bell is sold out, the company said.

This time around, Bhoy will bring to town Dear Epson, a new show.

In November 2009, Bhoy headlined the same Sullivan Heights-area venue as part of a Just For Laughs comedy tour.

The Scotsman has a natural gift for storytelling and razor-sharp wit.

Bhoy honed his story-based comedy in Edinburgh.

“In Scotland, it’s dark and miserable for so many months of the year that most of your time is spent telling stories,” he told the Now in 2009. “In college, I sat in bars at four in the afternoon when it was dark outside, so you entertain yourself with stories, humour…. I grew up with a love of a good yarn – something that paints a picture in your head that a simple joke just can’t do, a typical cheap-shot joke. A story-based joke can really enliven you and make you feel happy.”
