For those local comedy fans who were hoping to catch some live stand-up comedy this summer at this year’s Just For Laughs festival — but can’t due to its postponement to this fall — festival organizers recently announced that two of its popular club series shows — the Relationship Show and Comedy Night in Canada — will return for a brief run later this month at a new live venue, ‘Just For Laughs brings back live comedy.’
The recently-opened Royalmount Drive-In Event Theatre, located near the Decarie Boulevard and Highway 40 interchange, will be the place for fans to enjoy an evening of live stand-up comedy from the comfort of their own cars. On July 24 at 7 and 9:30 p.m., date night gets a whole new meaning with the return of the Relationship Show. Hosted by Adam Growe from “Cash Cab”, who will start the show with an interactive quiz show, the show will have on its line-up Graham Chittenden, Eman El-Husseini from CBC Radio’s “The Debaters”, and Ali Hassan, host of the CBC show “Laugh Out Loud”.
Adam Growe will also serve as the host of Comedy Night in Canada, which will also play for two performances at 7 and 9:30 p.m., on July 25. Joining him on the line-up are Canadian comedy stars Jess Salomon, Frank Spadone and Eddy King. Additional performers for both nights’ shows will be announced shortly.
Tickets for either or both shows are now on sale. Prices are $122.50 per vehicle (maximum five people per vehicle), and $175 per vehicle for the Preferred parking tickets (which gives attendees the opportunity to park their vehicles in a reserved section that is located closest to the stage) which are available on a limited basis. Also, selection of spots in both sections are available on a first come, first served basis. For more information, go toJust for laughs website.
