Comedy of Pinky Patel, Comic Strippers coming to Surrey in 2024

A look ahead at the Bell theatre’s show calendar in the new year

More comedy shows are coming to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre in the new year, including Pinky Patel and the return of The Comic Strippers.

Patel, the Illinois-raised “PTA mom turned creator, comedian, and personality with a fan base of over five million,” will do a show for a 19-plus crowd March 10 at the Sullivan Heights theatre, a venue on her “New Crown, Who Dhis” tour booked by MRG Live.

“She is best known for her hilarious commentary and viral videos from her glam cave that have garnered over 89 million likes on TikTok,” notes a bio on the Bell’s website, where show tickets start at $42 and max at $106.

On Feb. 10, The Comic Strippers will bring their stripper parody and improv-comedy show back to the Bell, in another 19-plus production that promises “no extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity.” Tickets start at $51 for this one.

Previously announced for the 1,000-seat theatre is Darcy & Jer’s No Refunds show Friday, April 26, when “accidental TikTok stars” Darcy Michael and husband Jeremy Baer, who are residents of Delta, aim to offer “an evening of hilarious comedy celebrating love, relationships, mental health and probably some sort of wardrobe malfunction.”

Shows on the Bell calendar this month include the British comedy “O Christmas Tea” (two shows Dec. 29) and Darren Lee in the Hawaii-themed Elvis tribute concert One Night of Burnin’ Love (Dec. 30).

In 2024, the venue will be a stage for a variety of shows including TEDxSurrey (Jan. 20), Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (multiple dates including Jan. 21 and March 3) and Afghan singer/songwriter Ghezaal Enayat in concert (Feb. 17).

Of note in spring are a pair of Ballet B.C. “Now” performances March 22-23, when the dance company promises a new commission from L.A.-based Micaela Taylor, the return of “The Statement” from Crystal Pite and a follow-up world premiere from Out Innerspace, a Vancouver-based duo. Planned is “an all-West Coast program celebrating the exceptional work of some of today’s top women choreographers,” according to a post on the Bell’s website, where tickets start at $39.05.

Other shows coming to the theatre next year include musical tributes to The Everly Brothers, “Four by Four” (music of the Beach Boys, Bee-Gees, Motown and Beatles), The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. For dates and other details, check
