Healthy Living in Comedy

Montreal comics Lawrence Corber and Chris Venditto tackle “Healthy Living in Comedy” as it makes its return to the comedy fest for the second year in a row.

Labelled as “part food, part lifestyle, all hilarity,” the show is a realistic (and hilarious) take on what it’s like to be a stand-up comedy, especially on the diet and the liver.
