You know it’s got to be a good giveaway for me to be doing this the week leading up to my wedding… but this is a good one. I’m giving away a pair of Gala Tickets to the Edmonton Comedy Festival!!

The third annual comedy festival has an amazing line-up – more than two dozen of the funniest comics in North America performing on several stages across Edmonton over several days.

From the website:

“With a mix of new acts and returning festival favourites, it’s official: Funny Has Hit the Capital City. From snappy young home grown heroes, to veteran comic masters, to Youtube sensations, to a Saturday Night Live star this festival has it all!”

Edmonton Comedy Festival runs October 16-19, 2013.

The gala tickets get you into the Comedy Unleashed (18+ Show) featuring Sean Cullen, with Big Daddy Tazz, Frank Spadone, Kenny Valgardson, Brad Muise, Tony Krolo, Julie Kim, and Tyler Hawkins. The gala shows are the premier events of the comedy festival!

This Edmonton Comedy Festival is organized by my friend Graham Neil and it’s one that I would be going to if I weren’t on my honeymoon during that time. But that’s no reason why you can’t get in on the laughs!

  5. A woman whose husband often came home drunk decided to cure him of the habit. One Halloween night, she put on a devil suit and hid behind a tree to intercept him on the way home.
    When her husband came by, she jumped out and stood before him with her red horns, long tail, and pitchfork.
    “Who are you?” he asked.
    “I’m the Devil,” she responded.
    “Well, come on home with me,” he said, “I married your sister.”

  7. A mushroom goes into a bar and tells the bartender he wants to order a drink. The bartender tells him to get out and that they don’t serve his kind! The mushroom says to the bartender “Why not, I’m a funghi???”
