CBC Radio’s hit comedy show, The Irrelevant Show, is coming to the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre.
Now entering its seventh season on national radio, The Irrelevant Show finds laughs in the lives of everyday Canadians: hit sketches include Mom Downloads a Podcast, The Chemainus Song, The New Ten Commandments (Which declares “Thou Shalt Not Microwave Fish at Work”) and Man Cold.
The Irrelevant Show has become one of CBC Radio’s most successful comedy shows, drawing 750,000 listeners every week. The show has won two Canadian Comedy awards (most recently last season for our sketch Bee Circus) and a medal for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program at the prestigious New York festivals.
The Irrelevant Show’s cast is made up of some of Canada’s most talented comedy performers: Mark Meer, Donovan Workun, Jana O’Connor and Neil Grahn, and their pool of writers reaches across the country, including BC’s Peter N Chris, Tom Hill, Devin MacKenzie and Ian Boothby. And the live evenings are events unto themselves, with sound effects created right before the audience’s eyes and ears, and between-sketch banter that many fans say is a highlight of the live show.
