There’s something funny going on around here
The laughter was catching on July 24, as several stars of the Just for Laughs festival made a side trip to entertain a standing-room-only crowd of 90 at the JGH Hope & Cope Wellness Centre (Lou’s House). After the free show, a delighted spectator spontaneously hugged The Boy with Tape on his Face, to the surprise of (from left) Suzanne O’Brien, Executive Director of Hope & Cope, and comics Alonzo Bodden, Ryan Wilner, Adam Hills and Saranne Rothberg. The event was organized by Mr. Hills—an Australian superstar who performed at the Centre in 2011 and 2012—and Comedy Gives Back (CGB), in association with Just For Laughs. Jodi Lieberman, co-founder of CGB, a social benefit enterprise, received a round of applause when she told the audience her organization is determined to mount similar shows every year.
