Have you been enjoying the Edmonton Fringe Festival so far?! There’s still a week left to go and after you’re all Fringed out, I’m giving you the chance to celebrate the end of the festival at the End of the Fringe Comedy Gala taking place Saturday August 24 at Marquee Mansion (10304 111 Street)!

The event is hosted by Toronto-based comedian Wayne Jones (who also happens to eat at my parent’s restaurant and loves it! ;)) and features local comedians Lars Callieou and Danny Martinello. I’m also told they’re flying in out-of-town comedians for the show too! I’ve got one pair of tickets to give away for this sure-to-be-hilarious event.

  1. I always crack up watching the viral video of the baby laughing when the parents rips paper. I always laugh when I see kids laugh! – Courteney Robson

  2. I love when my husband says silly things that actually manage catch me by surprise…it always makes laugh out loud!

  3. Listening to my younger son who has the driest sense of humor make a spot on comment that can tear up an entire room.

  4. What makes me laugh is looking through old pictures of myself or those that I love and landing on hidden goofy gems that I forgot existed. Creative, out-dated poses always gets me :D <3

  5. Sharing nostalgic memories with friends about awkward dates, terrible clothing mishaps and generally embarrassing (unintentional) public displays. Most recently for me, it was nonchalantly walking into a door at the lrt station while I was transfixed on my Blackberry.

  6. Cheesy action movies that my other half loves like “Sharknato and “Two headed Shark Attack” to name a few! @karbuah

  7. The thing that always makes me laugh is shows like”Wipeout” when people have bad falls. We’ve all had an embarrassing wipeout some time or another, that’s what makes it so great! :)

  8. The British clips from A Bit of Fry and Laurie…..British comedians do dry humour like no one else! Especially the milk chalice, or the police station skits!
