Hospice fundraiser gets the blues

Surrey Hospice Society is Chasing the Blues Away with a dinner dance and comedy show. 

This fun-filled evening of food, laughter and music will feature Langley’s improv troupe, The Comedy Factory and dancing to Redline.

It takes place Friday, Nov. 2 at the Mirage Banquet Hall, 17767 64 Ave. in Surrey.

The Comedy Factory features the off-the-cuff hilarity of Langley’s Elaine Brewer-White, Gordon White and Ty Stokoe, as well as Tswwassen’s Randy Schooley.

“The rest are old favourites,” said Brewer-White of the comedy team she’s assembled for the event.

The Comedy Factory was formed two years ago and draws from a pool of local talent. The group’s one-hour show will feature plenty of audience suggestion as well as on-stage participation from members of the crowd.

White is currently on a break from his tours with Cirque du Soleil. Brewer-White teaches improvisational comedy as well as directing her artistic talents toward humourous sculpture in her Fort Langley studio.

The fundraising evening begins at 6 p.m. with appetizers, followed by a 7 p.m. dinner and 8 p.m. show. 

All proceeds will go to Surrey Hospice Society.

Tickets are $50 each ($25 tax receipt), and are available at 604-543-7006.
