How was your weekend? I ate Chinese food, saw a bunch of hardcore bands, made a new friend, started a band, was one of two people in a surprisingly empty Saturday farmers' market, shuffled around in the snow a lot, made biscuits, learned a bit about Russian prison camps, had a glass of port and got a terrible cold. Ending the weekend on a bad note wasn't so hot, and by all accounts, I had a pretty good weekend. If your weekend was a little less eventful, and involved shovelling a lot of snow or catching up on Downton, leaving you aching to go out and be entertained, look no further.
That Time of The Month is a monthly all-female comedy night that consistently packs the house and puts the smiles on the faces. This month's theme is self-love (one of my favourite themes ever) and really moves the plot along with gift certificates from Venus Envy as raffle prizes. There are two shows tonight (Monday, February 11, 7pm, 9:15pm at the Company House, 2202 Gottingen, $5) featuring sketches, stand-up and more. Get there early or risk being disappointed. Because when I say these shows fill up, I do mean they fill up. Shake the snow off your weekend and start the week with some quality laughs from some of the most talented comedians in town.
