Vancouver's Graham Clark to Perform 24-Hour Standup Set
Vancouver's beloved Little Mountain Gallery is being closed and demolished, and in order to help the comedy hub find a new home, comedian Graham Clark will be raising money with a marathon 24-hour standup set.

Aside from a few bathroom breaks, Clark — who co-hosts the popular show Stop Podcasting Yourself — will be doing standup for a full 24 hours. This will be made possible with a team of fellow comedians, who will be on hand to write jokes for him on the spot.

"Little Mountain Gallery's closure is a big loss for the comedy scene in Vancouver," Clark said in a statement. "We've had two full-time comedy clubs close and another long-time comedy hangout, The Kino, also shuttered. Our comedy community needs a place to really be able to experiment and build new audiences. I will try to keep this in mind when I'm at hour 20."

The performance runs from Friday, December 17 at 8 p.m. until Saturday, December 18 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20 and audience members will have to present their vaccine passport (along with ID) and wear a mask. Tickets are on sale this Friday (November 26) at www.standupfor24hours.com.

Little Mountain Gallery is also raising funds through a GoFundMe campaign.

Clark has actually done a 24-hour standup set before. In 2019, he did a marathon set to raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, a charity that fights AIDS and HIV in Africa.
