Back for a fifth year, Vancouver's Giggles & Gags is an evening of original sketch comedy, jam-packed with hilarity, satires of our West Coast culture, parodies and sketches covering the silly to the surreal, with a few magical and musical interludes along the way. And, as Mark Twain almost said, if one sketch doesn't tickle your fancy, just wait five minutes!
Net proceeds of Giggles & Gags are donated to Vancouver's Mom2Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society, an organization that provides mentors and resources to single mothers living in poverty in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, helping these moms keep their kids in school, well nourished, and in stable and safe environments.
Presented by Anne with an E productions.
