Top Tips For Surviving the Festival

—If you are going to heckle try not to drink too much courage because you need to be sober enough to make sense!
—Keep your heckles short and sweet!
—Be prepared!
—If going in a group meet before hand and ask how people react at comedy shows, you do not want to sit near the heckler or the jackass.
—Have a meal beforehand as to line the stomach so that after the show you can introduce yourself to the comedians and buy them a drink or 5 and then you are ready to stay up late!
—When in doubt about any shows or where to go, pop along to the Classic on Queen street, there will ALWAYS be someone there that will help you, give you advice or try and sell you tickets.
