In celebration of the Just For Laughs tour, festival sponsor Capital One is looking to share the laughs with a lucky Vancity Buzz reader. To match the theme of this year’s tour, the “Laughing all the Way to the Bank” prize pack includes a $100 gift certificate for a dinner for two at any of Glowbal Group’s establishments (including the newly opened The Fish Shack), Just For Laughs swag (JFL Gag DVD Volume 7&8 and Victor mascot animal) and a hilarious DVD featuring one of the tour’s comedians.
To find out want makes Canadians, and more specifically British Columbians laugh, Capital One commissioned Vision Critical/Angus Reid Public Opinion to conduct a survey to find out more about attitudes and behaviours when it come to funny online content. Here are some of their findings:
- More than half of BC residents (54%) laugh out loud the most to funny videos while online.
- Meanwhile, 37% of BC residents said jokes they see online make them LOL, whereas a close to a third said they laugh the most to live stand up comedy.
