February 15, 8pm


Fresh off showcasing at Just For Laughs and Comedy Central Canadian Comedy Award-nominated duo Hip.Bang! is in Surrey with their critcally acclaimed show The History of Romance.

Hip.Bang!’s playful, absurd work has been featured at Just For Laughs, San Francisco SketchFest, and as writers for CBC Radio’s The Irrelevant Show. In 2016, their comedic parody of the holiday fire log video, co-produced by the CBC, piled up hundreds of thousands of views.    

The History of Romance is the authoritative history of romantic thought you never realized you wanted but have always truly needed. From Romeo and Juliet to the mess that is modern dating, this show will make you laugh like a child who has just learned about ice cream. 

The Edmonton Journal gave it “✮✮✮✮✮” and called it a “tour-de-force […] so funny you might wet yourself.”
