Big Beast Stand-up Comedy returns to the Rod & Gun in Parksville at 8 p.m. on March 5.
Winging in from Toronto, comedian Rob Ross will work a crowd with lighting quick wit and his dark and hilariously crafted jokes, according to a news release.
“Holy cow we bagged a real Canadian Big Beast this time,” the release read. “Rob Ross is a journeyman comic with his toes in all pools comedy. From show running, writing, acting, Rob’s credits read longer than the ingredients on my Pizza Rolls. But when he really shines is with a stand-up microphone in his hand.”
With his lightning quick wit strikes, followed by rolling thunderous laughter that engulfs any venue that can hold him, Ross is equally deft at delivering his dangerous material and involving the crowd to their delight.
Ross has appeared on MTV Live, Just For Laughs Gala, the Juno Awards, Comedy Now Special, Halifax Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the CBC’s Comics (at age 24), Canada’s Smartest Person (the show, not him), the CBC’s Still Standing, Royal Canadian Air Farce, and The Mercer Report.
The tour will also make stops at the Nanaimo Bar in Nanaimo on March 2, the Riverside Inn in Lake Cowichan on March 3 and the Port Pub in Port Alberni on March 4.
Tickets for the Parksville show are $26.74 and available online at Eventbrite.
