Halifax is getting another new comedy club in 2023

The indie comedy scene's glow-up isn't slowing down as Clayton Park gets its own venue for LOL-ing IRL.

Throughout 2022, Halifax's legendary comedy scene proved it still knows what's funny, expanding its scope with a host of comedian-run open mic nights and new, indie venues around the city. As a new cohort of comics emerged, the scene found itself reinvigorated. The trend is showing no signs of slowing down as a new year settles in: This month, The Lower Deck in Clayton Park is launching a professional comedy showcase, called Laughing Deck. The first event is slated for Jan 26 and features joke-teller Jordan Foisy as headliner, a writer for 22 Minutes who's also appeared on Just For Laughs. Rounding out the bill? Local laugh-getters Martin Edwards and Sam Bartol.  Organized by the minds behind Dartmouth's Darkside Comedy Club (a popular pop-up at the Hilton Double Tree on Wyse Road), the show starts at 8pm. Details are available via Eventbrite.

Here's a clip of headliner Foisy cracking up a crowd in 2022:
