German polka enthusiast Jurgen Muller makes an appearance at A One Night Stand with Mike Delamont Dec. 5 and 6.

Walk of shame not included

Have a one night stand with Mike Delamont at the Victoria Event Centre

Victoria favourites Jimmy Peekaboo, wine superstar Carlo Rossi, and German polka enthusiast Jurgen Muller make a return to the stage as “guests” of comedian Mike Delamont this month.

“It’s a standup show with a bunch of different people – except they’re all me,” says Delamont.

A One Night Stand with Mike Delamont runs Dec. 5 and 6 at the Victoria Event Centre. The show includes characters created by Delamont when he was a member of Atomic Vaudeville.

“It contains video elements as well as the live show,” he says, which will be different each night. “If you miss it, you’ve missed it.”

The films include locals Morgan Cranny and Rod Peter Jr., among others. “We had a fun time. I forgot what it was like to put a show like this together. There’s lots of funny people (on screen) and I’m on stage – it’s the best of both worlds.”

Normally on hiatus in December, Delamont was eager to give some payback to his Victoria fans.

“It was doing these types of shows that gave me the career I have now,” says Delamont who performed at Just for Laughs Montreal in July, with an expected spring air date.

“I like doing shows in intimate spaces, they’re a lot of fun. People who know me know there’ll be skits, singing, dancing, a lot of jokes, the film … I have a super career that started out of Atomic Vaudeville – it’s what I do best.”

Tickets are $20, available at mikedelamont.com.
