Paul Anthony's Talent Time: 11th Anniversary Special!
8:00pm - Thursday, Feb 7, 2019
We are celebrating 11 years of monthly live variety shows by turning the Rio into a roller rink! With the help of Rolla Skate Club we will feature...
✓ THE WORLDS SMALLEST & SLOWEST ROLLER DERBY!
The stage is 5 feet high and the surface isn't exactly smooth so we bring you the most bare-boned, slow-motion mini derby anyone has ever seen!
✓ AUDIENCE MAKE-OVER!
Just in time for Valentines day, one lucky person will receive a new lease on life when Paul & Ryan unleash fashion & lifestyle skills they don't have.
✓ TAIKO DRUMMING: SANSHO DAIKO!!
Drawing on both traditional and contemporary repertoire, the group creates a visual and aural experience that defies easy categorization and crosses ethnic and cultural boundaries. Like the plant it was named after, Sansho Daiko seeks to be a spicy addition to the west coast taiko scene.
✓ THEREMIN ARTIST: STEPHEN HAMM!
Once described as ‘semi-legendary’ by the Georgia Straight, he has performed around the globe with Canned Hamm, Slow and The Evaporators. Stephen has recently turned his attention to the Theremin a mysterious and enigmatic electronic instrument invented in Russia in the 1920’s. One does not touch the Theremin. It’s ethereal, voice like sound is produced by precise gestures of the hands waved around it’s two antennae.
✓ COMEDIAN: SEAN DEVLIN!
You usually only see Sean warming up the show but for our anniversary we asked him if he would attempt one of his comedy experiments. We love Sean allot.
✓ BONUS APPEARANCE: SEISHUN YOUTH ACADAMY!!
The Canadian sister group to Japanese rock idol unit, Seishun Gakuen. Their energetic and powerful performance will get the crowd excited as they deliver an authentic singing and dancing idol performance to their original songs in English and Japanese!

- - Matthew Hays, Globe & Mail/CBC Arts Online
"A cult phenomenon that’s been flying under the radar...since 2008. A true comedy original. Talent Time defies genre. You have to experience it to truly appreciate it." - Guy MacPherson, The Georgia Straight
