Celebrated on March 8 every year, International Women’s Day (IWD) is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

Celebrated monthly, Paul Anthony’s Talent Time presents a variety show consisting of musical, comedic, and other kinds of talent, mostly from the Lower Mainland.

On March 7, these two forces come together in a nonstop rollercoaster of empowered entertainment: Paul Anthony’s Talent Time: Celebrate Women’s Day! Let’s see what Mr. Anthonly has in store at the Rio Theatre (1660 E. Broadway) event.

As of this writing, the talent includes:

June Fukumura as Sumiko the Clown—According to the Facebook event page, “June’s dark humoured, hyper kawaii, raunchy clown alter-ego dices, slices, and blends up Japanese stereotypes and cooks it over a BBQ grill for her friends to consume!!”

Nasty Women Comedy—From same: “An improv and sketch group consisting of some of Vancouver’s fiercest, funniest, feminist-ists!!”

Seishun Youth Academy—This all-female singing outfit describes itself as “the Canadian sister group” to Seishun Gakuen. Seishun Gakuen is a Japanese rock-idol unit known for its “powerful and emotional live performances, which work together with audience members to make every concert venue they perform at the best in all of Japan!” Seishun Youth Academy deliver their original songs in English and Japanese.

Ally, Emily, Stella, Jessica, Yayoi, and Sally of Seishun Youth Academy.

Caitlin Howden—A regular with the Sunday Service improv comedy troupe and winner of this year’s JFL Northwest Award for Best Improvisor in Vancouver.

Anja Kettner—The Talent Time favourite returns with a new song.

Talent Time promises that more acts will be announced. Your host for the evening is Paul Anthony, who is joined by co-host Ryan Beil. Kristy-Lee Audette leads a house band. All ages are welcome, though you must be 19+ for bar service.

If you’re still wondering what to expect, apparently the previous season of Talent Time is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
