Recent studies suggest stand-up comedy is the number-one cause of knee slaps and face slaps received after slapping a stranger's knee. Smack yourself silly with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket (a $21 value including GST) to The Laugh Shop, located in Sherwood Park. Show times are Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. This deal cannot be used for Thursday evening shows.
The Laugh Shop induces chortles and guffaws with sidesplitting stand-up acts that rotate across its weekend stage. Release the stresses of gum-ball number guessing by cruising through the balanced schedule of comics that cover legendary-veteran ground and prestigious, topical territory.
On February 25 and 26, Kerry Unger makes shadow puppets in the spotlight after repping Canada as the only native out of 27 jesters on the New Faces of Comedy showcase in Montreal. On March 18 and 19, West Coast comedy kaiser Simon King combines stream-of-consciousness improvisation with aggressive written material, running the gamut of political humour to absurd suggestions. Each weekend highlights a new cutup with a variety of witticisms that play pied piper to the audience's ingenuous engagement.
