Stand Up, Stand Out! April Fools’ Day at XY

By Kendell Yan

Come support some local fools who are queering the comedy scene in Vancouver at Stand Up, Stand Out! April Fools’ edition! Who knows? You may just have your heart broken by a lovesick poet at the open mic beginnings of a burgeoning career, or at the very least find yourself in stitches and with a tighter mid-section from laughing far too out loud!
