Just For Laughs

Here’s a heads up about this annual comedy tour which touches down in Regina at Conexus Arts Centre on Thursday, Nov. 6. The tour is affiliated with the wildly popular Just For Laughs comedy festival that’s held each summer in Montreal. The festival started in 1983, and subsequently spawned a film series, TV show, satellite festivals and more.

The four feature comics appearing on Thursday are Demetri Martin, Jon Dore, Levi MacDougall and Todd Glass. The first punchline should be delivered shortly at 7:30 p.m., and tickets range from $31.50-$44.50. For more information visit the CAC website.

To give you a sense of what to expect here’s two minutes of shtick from Demetri Martin on Comedy Central:

 


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
