Hell On Wheels Production 

Coming soon to a venue near you! 

Ryan Lachance and his good friend Jesse D are coming your way with their show of epic proportions “Hell on Wheels”! Both comedians have lived through the sunshine and the rain of this journey we call life and have come through the other side with one piece of knowledge they can agree on: Laughter is THE best medicine. We believe in the power of laughter to heal and create unity within ourselves and our communities which is why one of the goals of this show is to include as many up-and-coming talents as we can along the way!  

Also, we know the value of never taking ourselves too seriously. Whether it’s the unique perspective of Ryan Lachance bringing the able bodied into his world for even just a moment, or the subtle yet terrifying inside thoughts of Jesse D, there is truly something for all to leave smiling about after this show. You can miss out if you want but itsyour funeral!

Ryan Lachance

Ryan Lachance is a professional stand-up comedian from White Rock, British Columbia, who is a hilarious storyteller and seasoned performer with over 25 years of stage experience.  

Incorporating his unique perspective as a comic living with quad-spastic cerebral palsy, Ryan shares intensely personal anecdotes from his family life growing up in Alberta and BC. He interweaves the everyday joys and serious challenges he has faced while masterfully spinning it all into a hilariously entertaining, totally unique and memorable performance.    
Ryan has established himself as a mainstay of the Vancouver Comedy Scene, headlining local shows and touring throughout Canada. Ryan served as a feature performer at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, headlined at House of Comedy, performed at the Halifax comedy festival in 2023, and is a regular headline and feature act at Yuk Yuk's, House of Comedy, and Just for Laughs.  Even more recently, Ryan collaborated on the Just for Laughs Best of the West comedy album compilation! 


Jesse DeWispelaere is a 31-year-old father of four beautiful children. He was born and raised on Vancouver Island. After fighting a decade and a half’s battle with addiction he found one thing that ultimately made a difference in his life, the life of his loved ones, and the society he grew up in… art. Through his facets of stand-up comedy, music, and poetry he has learned that there truly is no problem that a laugh, a poem, and some rhythm can’t help you carry! Some of Jesse’s most recent accomplishments are performing as an opener at yuk yuks, and the Nanaimo Fringe Festival. After just awakening to his calling, he has found that he truly is the poet who didn’t know it.  


These comedians are setting off to your town to bring some of the wittiest, and most profound experiences, thoughts, and insights one can hope to witness! We would love to have a meeting with you and your team to discuss the details of putting together a show at your venue.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of this great Canadian undertaking!
