Com­edy Show Up­com­ing at the Haskell

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Made­line Mul­hol­land Stanstead

Comingup this week­end, on Satur­day, June 11th, Stanstead’s Cul­tural and Recre­ational Com­mit­tee is host­ing its’ an­nual Com­edy Show at the Haskell Opera House. The pro­ceeds of the event are to help fund so­cial and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties for the town and all cit­i­zens are en­cour­aged to buy tick­ets and at­tend, as a good time is guar­an­teed for all. If you can­not at­tend, per­haps con­sider pur­chas­ing the tick­ets as a gift for friends or fam­ily, as the co­me­di­ans lined up for Satur­day night are funny enough to hold their own in Mon­treal venues that typ­i­cally host the renowned Com­edy Fes­ti­val and cater to au­di­ences that are dif­fi­cult to please.

The tick­ets are $20 and some seats are still avail­able. The SCRC hopes the turnout will be good, as the com­mit­tee can­not con­tinue to host events that are not well at­tended. As Stanstead cit­i­zens are known to com­plain about hav­ing ‘noth­ing to do’, a Mon­treal Com­edy Fes­ti­val cal­i­bre show is hardly some­thing to scoff at, and it sure beats watch­ing tele­vi­sion and grip­ing about bore­dom. So, if you want to have an evening of laughs and don’t want to travel far, con­tact the SCRC and pur­chase a ticket be­fore they are sold out. In­cluded in the price of the tick­ets are an in­vi­ta­tion to the af­ter­show party at Check­point Char­lie’s where a 2 for 1 coupon is of­fered on your first drink and guests are in­vited to meet the co­me­di­ans. Tick­ets are avail­able at Proxim Phar­macy, Mil­lie’s Diner or at the door. For a pre­view of the co­me­di­ans’ acts you can go to the Stanstead Cul­tural and Recre­ational Cen­ter Face­book page and check out the co­me­di­ans’ vi­does.
