Levi McCachen

One of the fastest rising comics in Vancouver, Levi McCachen has been tearing up stages everywhere he goes. He was the winner of the CFOX comedy competition and a top finalist in the 2016 Vancouver Yuk Off. He's a regular at The Comedy Mix, where he routinely opens for International stars and has performed at the Pemberton Music Festival. He has also been featured in the XM Top Comic Competition. From the difficulties of dating, to generational differences, Levi's unique and refreshing point of view always leaves audience guessing and laughing.

Feature: Yashar Kafi

With his dry, deadpan delivery, Iranian born comedian Yashar Kafi examines American culture with sarcasm and irony, translating stereotypes into punchlines and bringing audiences to their knees. Yashar's cantankerous personae bears a close 

resemblance to an Iranian Craig Ferguson meets DeNiro in Taxi Driver.  Just 2 years after beginning standup, Yashar advanced to the semi-finals in KTLA's Find Me a Comic competition, beating out hundreds of seasoned competitors.  In 2016, Yashar placed 2nd in LA's Funniest Comic contest in the Headliner category.  A man of many talents, Yashar has starred in over 100 student films and is a Black Belt in karate.  You can find Yashar sharing his love of Chuck Norris on his Instagram page or on the streets of Pasadena, feeding local stray cats.  

MC: Sam Tonning

Sam is a silly man. He has silly thoughts and says silly things. These things have been known to make people laugh and feel better than him. He tells dirty jokes. That's the way it is.

He loves long walks on the beach and Phil Collins, and for some reason his high school gym teacher and Whitesnake.

Sam produces Wall to Wall Comedy, the Dirty Jokes show, is the sidekick on The Brett Martin Show and performs wherever someone will let him.

Sam can be heard on CFRO 100.5 Vancouver Coop Radio as the support act for Guy MacPherson on What’s So Funny? (long, long running comedy interview radio show - it's awesome). This is also a podcast. Sam’s on a podcast.
