Laughter was the second earliest form of human expression, closely following the grunts of frustrated cavemen comedians. Enjoy mirthful declarations with today's Groupon to FunnyFest Calgary Comedy Festival. Choose between the following options:
- For $14, you get two tickets to a single show (a $30 value).
- For $49, you get a festival pass (a $99 value).
Boasting 70 different performances spanning 11 days and nights, FunnyFest amuses the masses through its celebration of laughter. A festival pass ($99) or performance ticket ($15) affords chortlers a chance to yuck it up at one of the event's many venues while gleaning the assembled comics hailing from Canada, international turf, or Ed the Sock's underwear drawer. Each performance stretches 90 minutes to two hours and hosts a minimum of six cut-ups humorously touching on one of 20 different festival themes. The tone ranges from lowbrow to highbrow, and some routines are prohibited to underage audiences, so young ticket holders should call ahead or wear their most serious Groucho Marx costume.
