Jolly Brain Productions was created on the beach one sunny afternoon a few short years ago. The idea and concept was simple: create a local business that caters to the needs and wants of both artists, and their fans, locally and abroad.
The immediate goal: to create a local following with live comedy shows of all kinds using our team of professional actors, comedians, and improv troops.
Laugh Your Ass Off was an experimental title that featured Scott Patey, who has hosted or headlined all 20 LYAO events in the last 3+ years since it’s inception into the local scene. The first LYAO show was a hit, and after 4 more rammed shows at our favorite local Corduroy in Kitsilano, the demand became too great and we were forced to move to the larger Media Club downtown, and most recently Rickshaw Theatre also downtown.
Since the LYAO departure from Corduroy, a new show also hosted by Scott Patey has erupted: Rock Paper Corduroy or #RPC. Now over 200 shows deep, it has become a mainstay in the Kitsilano neighborhood and local culture. For just $5 anyone has the chance to battle in the finals each Monday night, for a chance to win $50 cash, a trophy full of beer, and bragging rights for life!
And most recently Jolly Brain is now happily hosting another weekly Rock Paper Scissors show in downtown Vancouver. That’s right #TheBeaverVan inside Samesun Backpackers Hostel on the Granville strip, has teamed up with J.B.P. to bring you the same show as Monday night’s #RPC, every Tuesday now Rock Paper Beaver or #RPB.
All this combined with our partners’ years in experience touring with notable rock, country and hip hop artists throughout North America, including executive responsibilities such as artist management, tour management, live sound, live bookings, label coordination, business management and more, makes for a stellar combination in entertainment.
Stay Jolly, and Laugh Your Ass Off.
