      Takeout with Tammy is the Georgia Straight’s new food series, where we invite renowned guests to chat over mouthwatering takeout fare.

      Originally from Vancouver, Juno award-winning stand-up comedian Ivan Decker can command laughs from any type of audience.

      Now based in Los Angeles, he’s known for appearing in various local comedy festivals, the Just for Laughs festival, U.S. television show Conan, and Netflix’s stand-up series, Comedians of the World.

      Besides telling clever and funny jokes, he’s also a talented writer and actor.

      Decker took some time out of his busy schedule to try some mouthwatering takeout with us while we chatted about Vancouver’s food scene, what he eats when travelling on the road, his proudest moments in the last decade, and recording his upcoming comedy album this year.

      We chowed down on some good grub like xiao long baos (soup dumplings) and beef rolls from Lin’s Chinese Cuisine (1537 West Broadway), Japanese treats like roasted green tea Kit Kat, and the intriguing Juicy Drop gummies (from your local dollar store).
