Calgary may be a meat-and-potatoes kind of town, but it’s produced one of the weirdest comics in the country.
The infectious goofiness of Chris Gordon is a thing to behold. He’ll repeat himself to the point of absurdity, do a wardrobe change mid-set, and get his phone to do the dirty work of telling jokes. But the humour isn’t just in the oddness; there are real jokes in there, too. That combination makes his show a one-of-a-kind experience.
Being a short flight away, Gordon is a regular at the Comedy MIX on Burrard, and that’s where you can find him this week, performing five shows from Thursday through Saturday (August 13 to 15).
Also on the bill are Toronto’s Tim Nasiopoulos and Vancouver’s Patrick Maliha.
