Lots of laughs

We've had tickets to comedy nights at the Centre in the Square for the last couple of years. This year the comedy season ended with tonight's Just for Laughs Roadshow. This show was easily the best of the season - we laughed more in that couple of hours than we have in a while.

There were four comedians and of them, the first and last were the best. The host was Canadian and the last, featured comedian, was Australian while the middle two were from the US. The US comedians tended to focus on marriage, kids, religion, and ethnicity for their humour, and since these subjects just aren't things that we relate to it's no wonder that we didn't find them as funny.

The Canadian and Australian comedians drew humour from their accents, dogs, funny signs, and some silly physical interpretations. I was laughing so hard I was almost crying through most of their acts. If you get a chance to see this show, take it; it's well worth the cost and time.

Before the show most of the group went out to Boa Nova Rodizio Grill House for lots of yummy meat. Ian and the others enjoyed themselves but I didn't go because I'm not feeling my best this week. Yesterday I had really terrible heartburn and today I'm off food. I'm not feeling all that hungry and when I do eat it's not as enjoyable as usual. I get halfway through chewing something and it feels weird.

I don't know what's going on with body but I'm sure that it'll pass soon enough. I just wish that it didn't interfere with my ability to enjoy a yummy meal of meat.
