Our friends up at Regent College are always putting on interesting programs...and the coming months are no exception. Check out these opportunities for learning and laughter:
Thursday, Jan 30 at 7:30pm - 9:30 pm
Pastor-turned-comedian Clifford Prang will be doing stand-up comedy show at Regent College followed by a talk back. The title of his show is "What Are We Laughing At?: A Personal and Biblical Exploration of Suffering, Mockery and Sexuality in Comedy."
Cliff Prang is Cliff House Event Entertainment: a quirky company that engages local businesses, schools, and non-profits with a full menu of custom comedy options. Described as "disarmingly charming, focussed and funny," Cliff executes each event with comedic flair and a passion for people because he believes that YOU deserve to be celebrated.
Cliff is a former pastor, turned comedian/unemployed man. He lives in Yarrow, BC with his wife and three kids, and some day hopes to realize the dream of not burning himself when he cooks.
