The team at LoadingReadyRun will do just about anything for a donation, even the YMCA in costume if you ask! Find out what silly things they're willing to do for charity during the Desert Bus For Hope playathon, starting Friday, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m.

If music and theatre are not your thing, check out Steve Patterson, voted Canada’s best male stand-up comedian, as he hosts the Just For Laughs Comedy Tour British Invasion, Sun, Nov. 20 at the Royal Theatre. No stereotypical dry English humour here.
