Christmas Comedy Night coming next week

Award-winning author and humourist Phil Callaway is touring Canada with his Laugh and Celebrate Christmas show.

He will bring his fall-down-funny, heart-warming act to the Royal Canadian Legion in Ponoka on Dec. 6, at 7 p.m.

Callaway is the best-selling author of twenty-five books with titles like Laughing Matters and I Used to Have Answers, Now I Have Kids.

His five-minute daily radio program Laugh Again is now featured on 500 radio stations in North America.

Callaway says Christmas can be a hard and stress-filled time of the year.

“Each night I get to remind people to quit running so fast and enjoy this incredible season,” he said.

“Laughter is essential to our sanity at Christmas-time.”

The show is a celebration of stories that lift our spirits and make us smile, he says.

“I want people to go away with sore sides, ready to face whatever’s coming with humour and hope.”

Max Lucado, one of the top-selling authors of our time, said, “If you need a shot of sunlight on a cloudy day, this guy is for you.”
