Comedian returns with COVID-19 edition show at Chilliwack Cultural Centre

Mike Delamont brings show ‘God is a Scottish Drag Queen: Pandemic Edition’ to Chilliwack

God, dressed in a floral power suit and with a heavy Scottish brogue, returns to Chilliwack to skewer everything COVID related from hoarding toilet paper to hand sanitizer.

On Nov. 6, critically acclaimed Canadian comedian Mike Delamont brings his hilarious show God is a Scottish Drag Queen: Pandemic Edition to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre stage for two performances.

“The goal for me is to be able to talk about important things, but these things have to be funny,” Delamont said. “I could talk about big things, but the show is certainly not heavy. It’s nice to put things through a comedic lens like that.”

Since starting stand-up comedy in 2011, Delamont has had a huge amount of success within his career, performing across North America in places like the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and Upright Citizens Brigade in New York.

Just two years after he began, he was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Break Out Comedian of the Year. The following year he made his television debut with two gala performances for the Halifax Comedy Festival, as well as taped a set for the world renowned Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. He is a three-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee, and has been nominated twice for the Just For Laughs Best Comedy Award. He is an 18-time winner of the Best of the Fest award at various Fringe Festivals and is the top grossing comedian on the international fringe circuit.

“The show is more about society and life. There’s a lot of fodder for it,” Delamont said. “It’s a bigger and better version. You don’t have to have seen the first two show to see this one. It’s an entirely different show.”

God is a Scottish Drag Queen: Pandemic Edition is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The 7 p.m. performance is sold out, but there are tickets left for the 9:30 p.m. show. For more information, call the Centre Box Office 604-391-SHOW(7469).

All performances will be held under the current public health order and are limited to 50 patrons. Seating is spaced out with a maximum bubble size of six patrons, and all audience members must wear a mask when not in their theatre seats.
