I’m going to be honest. I don’t like to laugh. The act of it disgusts me. Mouths agape, chests contracting, weird faces. I prefer crying. I always have.
So imagine how I feel about Charlie Demers, one of the “funniest” “men” in “town”. Hearing the uproars that follow him show to show suggest he may be the city’s main cause of laughter. Instead of treating him as patient one (and cutting mirth off at the source), we herald him with success! From headlining Just For Laughs, to being a reoccurring guest on CBC’s Debaters, Charlie is becoming a plague to those of us who hate to feel joy. I accidentally met him the other day, and had to stab my own hand to prevent joining the unwashed masses of laughers who would enjoy his wealth of charm. See for yourself below why he (and don’t get me started on mad man Ryan Beil) needs to be stopped before he can enchant another innocent:
If you would like to protest his excellence, he will next be seen at tomorrow’s GIANTS III: Self Quest by Ryan Beil. I will be on hand for the 10pm show with cardboard and dull coloured markers to begin the occupation. We will have to buy tickets though, which you can do here.
GIANTS III January 14th @10pm
