Hot Flash Comedy

March 9, 2023 @ March 9, 2023


Your headliner, Syd Bosel 
Syd Bosel spills your life out onto the stage as she shares her tales of “adult” children, surviving breast cancer, menopause and other glories of nature.
She did her comedy training, and cut her comedy teeth in Vancouver, BC and recently moved to Comox, BC.
Syd placed first, and was voted Fan Favourite in the 2018, “BC’S Funniest New Female Comic” competition.
She placed 2nd (out of 65) comics, in the “Funniest Person with a Day Job” Competition.

Special Guest, Christine Hackman 
Christine Hackman has been inflicting herself on audiences in different capacities for many years, with her latest incarnation taking on stand-up. Christine share adventures from her own unique career in the arts, moving thoughout the world with a sense of wonder, and her life as a dedicated pogonophile. After relentlessly competing for 3 years, Christine is 2022’s “BC’s Funniest New Female Comic” and Fan Favourite.

Hosted by, Helen Schneiderman
Helen got into stand-up comedy a few years ago as a way to get off her couch. Helen’s comedy draws from her varied life experiences and trips around the globe. She’s not afraid to share — the good, the bad and the ugly — and audiences love her sincere and relatable style. Helen has performed all across the lower mainland and Vancouver Island. She was in CBC’s 2019 “NextUp Top 100”; won her preliminary round of the “2019 Yuk Off” contest; came second in the 2019 “BC’s Funniest New Female Comic” contest; and was the opening comic on the 2020 “I Am Woman Hear Me Laff” tour.
