Pop-Up Comedy Jam welcomes Anthony Trombetta to Cafe Deux Soleils on September 4

Start up a sweet September with Pop-Up Comedy Jam at Cafe Deux Soleils! Joining the Improv & Stand-Up Mashup on September 4 is Anthony Trombetta!

Anthony Trombetta

A founder of the Yukon stand-up scene, Anthony Trombetta has taken his act across North America. He is performed at Fringe festivals, comedy clubs, random town halls, and even on CBC’s The Debaters.

Anthony is the former Artistic Director of The Guild Theatre in Whitehorse, and is ready to be fully British Colombianized. When not indulging his wonderful daughter and amazing superstar wife, he’s usually indulging in a wide (exhausting) spectrum of nerdy activities.

Anthony’s stand-up set will inspire our improvisers, and we also need your suggestions for our scenes! Hot Improv Tuesdays on September 4 starts at 8 pm (doors at 7:30 pm), and tickets are just $7 or $5 for students!

The first Little Free Library was built by Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin. The model of a one-room schoolhouse was a tribute to his mother, a teacher who loved to read. There are over 50,000 Little Free Libraries, each unique and sharing the theme of exchanging good books and bringing people together.

Vancouver has dozens of Little Free Libraries, filled with novels, magazines, and children’s books looking for good homes! Each are lovingly maintained by book lovers, and restocked by readers looking to pass along a good stoy. We visited a few this past week to collect some fun books to share at Cafe Deux Soleils. Maybe they will find a new home during the show too!

Whether you’re a longtime bibliophile or looking for something to read on the Skytrain, join us on January 24 for Improv X Literature! Doors at 7:30 pm, show at 8:00 pm, and tickets just $7 or $5 for students! More info on Hot Improv Tuesdays here!
