The Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council welcomes the month of love in hysterics with a double bill featuring the Comic Strippers and Gloria’s Happy Hour.

Bow ties, bare chests, and lap dances, thrills, and laughs.  What more could one ask for to break out of the day-in day-out routine?

Semi-undressed and completely unscripted, the Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.

Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes a fictitious male stripper troupe, played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians (Roman Danylo, Ken Lawson, Chris Casillan, Pearce Visser, Michael Teigen, and David Milchard)  perform a scared shirtless improv comedy show.

Opening for the Comic Strippers is the one and only Gloria, host of the Happy Hour featuring a tap dancing, swing dancing chorus line and the ever-so-spunky, blunt, over the hill, and probably alcoholic, Gloria.

Written and produced by Kat Single-Dain, the artistic director of The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, Gloria shares her life through love stories from her days as a 1930s chorus girl to her B movie career and her present stint as a lounge singer

.• The Comic Strippers and Gloria’s Happy Hour play the ACT Saturday, Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets at theactmapleridge.org.
