Yuk Yuks Live at the Vic Theatre Oct. 2 @VicFilmFestival #yyjcomedy @VicTheatreYYJ


September 19, 2014

An amazing diverse stand-up show is touching down in Victoria on October 2nd at the Vic Theatre. The show will include two headliners Darren Frost and Brett Martin plus special MC Jared Borland.

With a combined talent of over 40 years in show business this will be a show well worth the ticket price and bound to push your buttons and expand your horizons.

For over 20 years, Darren Frost is one of Canada's most controversial comedians whose style of comedy has been described as having "the quality of a satanic revival meeting" and "among the most daring comedians in Canada" by The Toronto Star. Most recently Darren is nominated for a 2 Canadian Comedy Award including Best Male Standup 2014 plus appearances on LOST GIRL, Halifax Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival and The Ron James Show . Darren had joined the cast of the hit show Mr D on CBC playing an angry French teacher for season 2. He has upcoming appearances at the Calgary Comedy Festival and a new movie starring Nicolas Cage. . In the past he has graced the stage at the St Johns Comedy Festival Gala, CBC Debaters and the LOL Sudbury Festival Headlining the Dark and Edgy Show.

Darren was one of only four comics featured in an episode of the DISCOVERY CIVILIZATION channels show Tribes of the 21st Century. Darren also performed in over 22 shows at Just For Laughs including the Nasty Show and the televised gala. Darren also currently has one of Canada's largest comedy content websites at Darren has appeared in the Hollywood blockbuster Hairspray with John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Christopher Walken. Frost also has many movies to his credit including Assault On Precinct 13 with Ethan Hawke, Fever Pitch with Jimmy Fallon and Don't Say A Word with Michael Douglas. Darren is also best-known for his appearances in over 50 commercials including "The Cash For Life Fairy" and "Listerine's Action Hero Bottle".

Brett Martin is one of Canada’s rising Comedy Stars. With a style ranging from zen to irate, blunt to insightful, and relatable to way out there, he keeps crowds both at ease, and on their toes, at the same time. Simply put, he’s a Comic you should see.

With a relentless tour schedule, he has become one of Canada’s busiest Acts, headlining Comedy Clubs, Colleges, Theaters, Festivals, Casinos, Nightclubs, Corporate Performances, and more. He has his own “Comedy Now” special on CTV and the Comedy Network, recorded additional material for SiriusXM, and has his debut Album, ‘Free Trips to Afghanistan”, available on iTunes. As well, he’s breaking into the American market, and placed in the top 10 at the 2013 San Francisco International Comedy Competition.

Brett's style is perfect in the environment where every nuance and idea can be digested, yet he’s versatile enough to grab the surliest of crowds. With an eye and mouth for things bigger than just his own world, his Comedy tackles premises that leave you thinking, laughing and wondering when you’ll get a chance to see him again.

Also on the show is the master of ceremonies Jared Borland who for the past seven years has toured across Canada with Yuk Yuks and had an appearance at JFL42. In such a short period of time he has toured with Jon Lovitz, Broken Lizard and showcased for CTV's Comedy Now. To summarize Jared's style it would be "comedy about life" Through his real experiences that you can relate to or are glad you can't and appreciate he did instead, you will see why he was meant to be making you laugh" he is a balance of self deprecating, observational and a story teller.
