Train Wreck Comedy
Crashing at pubs, theatres and private events for over 13 years.
Hey there, comedy fans of the Okanagan Valley! I’m Rob Balsdon, and I just have to say a huge thank you for being a part of Train Wreck Comedy’s incredible journey.
Back in March 2010, we kicked off as a humble open mic show, where we had more comedians on stage than people in the audience. Fast forward to today, and we’ve become a professional comedy extravaganza, showcasing some of the hottest comedians in the biz. It’s been an absolute blast!
Let me share a little backstory. When the Yuk Yuks On Tour comedy venue closed down in Kelowna, I found myself in need of a place to fine-tune my routine. I had just opened for the legendary Norm MacDonald and was gearing up to open for Gerry Dee (Mr. D) and Brent Butt (Corner Gas). That’s when Train Wreck Comedy was born. It started as an amateur night where I could practice and invited the locals to join me on stage. Before I knew it, we had a weekly show that ran for a solid six years. Little did I know it would grow into something so massive, fun, and successful. The name? Well, it stuck, and by the time we realized it, Train Wreck Comedy was already rolling full steam ahead.
Nowadays, you can catch Train Wreck Comedy lighting up stages across the Okanagan Valley, from theatres and pubs to clubs and private events. We’re bringing you the absolute best comedians in the game, and it’s all thanks to the incredible support of our local comedy community.
So here’s the deal: I need your help to keep this comedy train barreling forward. Join our TWC-VIP crew and be a part of making Train Wreck Comedy one of the top comedy companies in all of Canada! Together, we’ll continue to grow, laugh, and create unforgettable comedic moments.
