Premiere of “The Inside Joke”
The hour-long documentary is called “The Inside Joke” and will be airing on SHAW (Cable 10 in Calgary) a couple of times a week for several weeks starting with its premiere on Saturday, February 19 at 9:00PM. After that, you can check your SHAW listings or their Facebook page to see when it will be re-airing (and it will hopefully find its way to Video On Demand – though the jury is still out on that one).
If you’d like to experience all the fun of a Hollywood movie premiere without the narcissism of actual celebrities, you can join a number of the members of Calgary’s comedy community (including most of the people in the documentary) for a special screening party on Sunday, February 20 at 7:00PM. The host venue will be the Calgary Yuk Yuk’s (in The Elbow River Casino). Doors will open at 5:30PM for drinks and mingling. We want as many people to see it as possible, so it’s a free event.
Hopefully you’ll be able to see this documentary in the coming weeks as it is truly a great look at comedy in the city and comedy in general.
