Dylan Rhymer will perform at Jimmy's Pub in Agassiz on Saturday

Second night of comedy at Jimmy’s

Dylan Rhymer on stage this weekend as comedy nights continue

Jimmy’s Pub and Grill is presenting another night of stand-up comedy, this coming Saturday Nov. 30.

After a successful showing last month with comedy powerhouse Simon King, they’re at it again. This time the feature performer is the 2013 winner of Shore FM’s (104.3) People’s Champ Comedy Competition, Dylan Rhymer.

Rhymer’s style is intelligent and imaginative, acerbic and fast-paced. His eye for the ironic and taste for the absurd peppers his observations of the world which we go about our business. He is more than just funny; he is passionate and intelligent, thoughtful and provocative. His comedy is brutally honest and socially relevant. It goes straight for the jugular while nibbling on your earlobe. Oh yeah and he’s been in a bunch of TV shows and commercials.

He has performed on Comedy Now!, CBC’s The Debaters (2011), at the Bumbershoot Arts Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Vancouver Comedy Festival, Chicago Sketchfest (2005), the World Urban Festival (2006) and the Newfoundland Screech WinterLaff Festival (2010).

As well, he created and performed the character Dick Hackney, obnoxious 8’0s stand-up comic, for the hugely popular video game Scarface: the World is Yours (Radical Games).

Opening for Rhymer will be Vancouver’s Adam Pateman. Adam is an extremely funny and accomplished comic in his own right – he won the People’s Choice Comedy Cometition in 2009 and has appeared on numerous TV shows and specials. Including his own “Comedy Now!” special for CTV.

The night will be emceed by Chilliwack’s own bouncer-turned-comic, Richard Thompson. Thompson may be remembered as the wise-cracking, suit-wearing doorman at some of Chilliwack’s old forgotten night haunts – Area 51, Tornado Joe’s, and Goodtimes Cabaret. Recently he’s taken his sarcasm and experience to the stage and although still a newcomer, he has already put together an impressive list of comedy credits – having emceed for Corner Gas’ Brent Butt and opened for Comedy Legend Doug Stanhope.

The show starts at 8:30 p.m., at Jimmy’s Pub and Grill in Agassiz

Tickets are $10 at the door.
