Vancouver's favourite (and only) televised variety show is back with an experimental episode paying homage to Glenn O'Brien's TV PARTY! TVP was a cable access show in NYC from 1978-1982. It was created by the new wave artists of the time as a reaction to the mainstream junk. In this day and age we can't do what they did. It wouldn't work. With the advent of the internet, few have patience for that much unwatchable mayhem. ...We are planning the same kind of TALENT TIME program you know and love, just using TV PARTY as inspiration for a slightly more experimental delivery.


★ Guest host HUGH PHUKOVSKY!!
The long-absent punk rock custodian of comedy returns to the stage to entertain and confuse. Although he has only performed 3 times in the last 5 years, in his height, Hugh played all over the world, from booze cans in New York, church basements in San Francisco and on top of billboards during rush hour in Vancouver. He has appeared on Much Music's Video On Trial as well as the Vicki Gabereau show and has opened numerous times for both Neil Hamburger & Zach Galifianakis.

The last time Hugh guest hosted Talent Time:

★ Stand Up Comedian DYLAN RHYMER!!

After spending years living in London, Toronto & Halifax, Dylan has finally moved back home! His comedy is a hilarious mix of scathing indictments of all society’s sacred cows which leaves audiences questioning where they themselves stand. Dylan has shared the stage with acts as varying as Zach Galifianakis, Doug Stanhope and Mitch Hedberg. One of my favourite voices in so-called "political" comedy. Sit up front and suck up that hilarious wisdom.

Dylan's Comedy Now special:

★ The return of co-host RYAN BEIL!!
★ One-man House band DEVON LOUGHEED!!
★ One-man sketch troop ANDREW BARBER!!
★ 2 other acts TBA!!
★ Games & Prize Give-a-Ways!!
