Mother’s Day is taking on a different meaning at the Performing Arts Centre this year.

The first clue is the warning at the end of the media release: This performance contains mature language.

Girls Nite Out is an all funny, all female troupe consisting of some of Canada’s top stand-ups and comedy improvisers. After over ten years together, these comedic superstars are still making people laugh and on Mother’s Day they will be delighting BPAC audiences.

Individually they have won Canadian Comedy Awards, performed on Second City stages around the world, and been featured on TV (NBC, CBC, The Comedy Network) & radio (CBC). But trust us; you’re going to want to see them all together!
