She’s been called a foxy blonde

Funny woman performed on The Tonight Show

Three female comedians take to the Parksville stage on October 3

A comedy night at Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville October 3 will feature funny woman Larke Miller.

The Vancouver based stand-up comedian who is generally regarded as being funny for a woman and attractive for a comedian has been making people laugh for several years with her dumb blonde persona.

Her love of comedy and writing led her to Los Angeles where she was accepted into the Groundlings program.

It was in Los Angeles, that she began performing stand-up comedy.

Early on in her stand-up career, she was selected as a Los Angeles finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. This led to her comedy being seen on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She has won a number of comedy contests, including the Shifting Baselines contest, which was judged by Larry David, Bill Mahr, Tom Arnold and Julia Louis Dreyfus.

Miller had the honour of performing at one of Richard Pryor’s last birthday celebrations.

Perhaps the biggest highlight of Miller’s stand-up career, was being asked to perform on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Miller is in a stand-up special which premiered in 2012, and airs regularly on CTV/Comedy Network.

Besides Miller, there will be some stand up material presented by guests Carilynn Nicholson and Kitty.

Darryl Shaw hosts the Friday, Oct. 3 show.  Doors open at 7 p.m., show begins at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

They are available online www.arbutusevents.ca and at the Quality Resort Bayside, Soak Essentials and ReVived Vintage in Qualicum Beach.
