Fresh of their appearance on CTV First Story, Vancouver-based Native comedians Brian Majore (The Bloody Savage) and Cliff Paul (Clifford the Big Rez Dog) with ‘special guests’ (Donovan Patrick Mahoney and Chris Gaskin – “The Token White Guy”) are embarking on a tour of B.C.

The all-Native stand-up comedy tour is a first-of-its-kind in British Columbia.  

Native stand-up comedy is an emerging art form, and Brian Majore and Cliff Paul are at the forefront of this emergence.  

“Native people love to laugh and we love making them laugh,” says Brian Majore, “so if you love to laugh, come on out to the show.”  

The tour of British Columbia kicks off with four shows on Vancouver Island, beginning with the first show in Campbell River on March 9 at 8 p.m. at the Thunderbird Hall.  The Rez Jesters will also be performing in Port Alberni, Nanaimo and Victoria.
