Standing up for laughs

Comedy night at Surrey Arts Centre March 9 features four female comedians.

Four female stand-up comedians come to Surrey Arts Centre next week for I Am Woman! Hear Me Laff!

Tanyalee Davis, Katie-Ellen Humphries, Christine Lippa and Lisa Person are the attractions for an evening of guaranteed laughs for all – with a warning of “adult” material.

MC Lippa is a 20-year veteran of acting, stand-up comedy and writing – when not doing sets on stage, she’s busy developing feature-film projects.

Deceptively quiet opening comic Person has a finely honed sense of the ridiculous, as her quirky takes on dating, sexuality and aging, featured in the Comedy Shocker and Comics On The Run shows have demonstrated.

Featured comic Humphries has been described as having “a sensibility that falls somewhere between the library and the locker room,” while headliner Davis has been described as “a powerhouse in the comedy world, despite her 3-ft., 6-inch stature.”

The two-hour show takes place Wednesday, March 9 at 8 p.m. The arts centre is located at 13750 88 Ave. Tickets ($25-$40) are available by calling 604-501-5566 or online at tickets.surrey.ca
