Comedian Darrin Rose will be host the Just for Laughs tour at the Bell Performing Arts Centre on Thursday.
SURREY – “I used to sell ketchup. Now I tell jokes – it’s so much better!”
Former Heinz marketer Darrin Rose didn’t take the most conventional path to become a comedian. It took the 2002 documentary The Comedian, about the career of Jerry Seinfeld, to get him to put down the red nectar.
Now 11 years later, Rose is one of Canada’s top comics, currently on the 13th edition of the Just For Laughs Comedy Tour, set to reach Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Nov. 21. Rose shares the stage with actor/comedian Godfrey, Travel Channel magician Ben Seidman and renowned comedy writer Orny Adams.
“The crazy thing for me is that documentary also stars Orny Adams, who I am now on tour with,” said Rose. “It’s the great pleasure of being on tour with a guy who literally changed my life.”
