On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature beloved Vancouver comic, podcaster and beard painter, Graham Clark. We recently sat down with Graham in a wide ranging conversation that touched on everything from his recent trip to Honduras to his paralyzing fear of ice fishing to his favorite varieties of late autumn apples. Here is a brief excerpt.

On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature one of Vancouver’s most charming improv duos. Christine Bortolin and Bita Joudaki are Sister Act. There have been some tensions in the group of late, manly caused by Joudaki’s proclivity for running off with sport-related mascots, but they’re staying together for the kids.
On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature the return of everyone’s favorite polyamorous sister-wives, The Progressive Polygamists. Few people know that GIANTS got it’s start as a hard-hitting investigative journalism show. Watch as we ask these Pick-of-the-Fringe winners some tough questions.
On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature the late-90s tinged humour of Ivan Decker. He is a man of many talents, mostly talents that would impress people at midnight desert raves (people he will also impress: those who like laughing). What we’re saying is that Ivan Decker will impress you.
On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature the debut an all-new-comedic-mega-collaboration. If you think that use of hyperbole is unnecessary, you’re mega-wrong. Comedian/author/man-of-note, Charles Demers, is writing a comedy for the James Dean’s of the Vancouver theatre world, Main Street Theatre. Hyperbole is justified.
On May 26th, GIANTS Comedy returns with a monumental closing show that puts the ‘fuck yeah’ in finale.
Featuring a centrepiece collaboration between Charles Demers and Main Street Theatre and a line up that includes Graham Clark, Ivan Decker, Sister Act, The Progressive Polygamists, you can see why we needed to add an explicative to the word ‘finale’.

It might be your last time to catch these legends of improv before they succumb to pancreatic cancer (Devin) and terminal osteoporosis (Tom). Get your tickets now for Hip.Bang’s March 24th performance at GIANTS V: MURDER BY DEATH!
Furious Anger Fun Hour are a sketch troupe that pushes the racial boundaries of sports equipment.
You saw Peter ‘n’ Chris at GIANTS I. Did you enjoy their hyper-physical, highly theatrical comedy? Be honest with yourself: you did.
Face more truth: you will enjoy what happens when two other fellas (including Bryan Nothling, above) join P’n'C to create the sketch group Furious Anger Fun Hour. Channeling the relaxed precision and promiscuity of their common theatre school background, FAFH put on a show you will laugh at. Watch Bryan convince you to buy sporting goods above, and then keep reading. Read More ⇒
