Juno-winning comedian to perform in Coombs

Sept. 14 performance features stand-up comedian Ivan Decker

The Juno-winner for Comedy Album of the Year in 2018, Ivan Decker, is coming to Coombs to perform at the Bradley Centre on Friday, Sept. 14.

Whether it’s discussing the difficulties of reconstructing a taco from memory by locating the ingredients hidden across a vast building (read “shopping at the grocery store”) or pointing out that getting in shape is hard because running is the hardest thing in the world, young comedian Ivan Decker has a knack for pointing out reality’s oddities, and tap into peoples’ as well.

His multi-layered observational style has won the Vancouver native a spot on the CBC program ‘The Debaters’, TV performances at the Just for Laughs Montreal festival, and a U.S. TV debut on Conan.

Decker’s debut comedy album, ‘I Wanted to Be a Dinosaur’ won the 2018 Juno award for Comedy Album of the Year.

He’ll also have a half-hour Netflix special coming out in 2019.

Decker’s Bradley Centre (975 Shearme Rd.) performance will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, with the doors opening at 7 p.m., with food served and a bar.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on eventbrite.ca or at Soak Essentials (180 Craig St, Parksville).
