Although it’s been ostracized by the five traditional senses, the sense of humour is the only thing that enables human beings to detect a rubber chicken creeping up from behind. Stay on guard with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get four general-admission tickets to The Comedy Factory (an $80 value). Performances are held every Friday and Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
Local wisecrackers at The Comedy Factory mine for laughs during stand-up routines, hypnotism sets, and other chuckle-conjuring sessions that are profanity-free and suitable for all ages. Upcoming acts include corporate function favorite Tom Liske (September 23–24), a former guitar plucker turned comedian who is best known for his self-deprecating humour and shape-shifting abilities. Ventriloquist Damien James, a man with more than 20 years of performing experience, takes the stage from September 30 to October 1, impressing audiences by manipulating handmade puppets and throwing his voice into a Nerf basketball hoop.
