Comedy from the Couch returns September 25!
For the past 22 years, Fighting Blindness Canada’s (FBC) annual fundraising events Comic Vision and Last Call have delivered a night to remember, bringing supporters together to help raise over $10 million towards sight-saving research.
As COVID-19 continues to have a significant impact on all of us, we’re coming back this year with another installment of our virtual event Comedy from the Couch, taking place Saturday, September 25th at 8 p.m. eastern time.
We heard your feedback from last year… you want MORE COMEDY! This year, we’re excited to announce that Just For Laughs will be joining the event to present an outstanding show with top-notch comedians.
Virtual Live Auction
We’re also excited to once again offer a virtual silent auction as part of the event. You don’t need a ticket to participate in the auction, just a love of bidding for a good cause! The auction will launch September 18 at givergy.ca/fightingblindness. Travel options, artwork, sports memorabilia, and jewelry are just some of the auction items you will find. Stay tuned for details on the auction as they become available in early September at comicvision.ca.
Meal and Snack Boxes
And there’s more… Comedy night isn’t the same without some tasty treats or sharing with a friend!
New this year, Comedy from the Couch is offering delicious meal or snack box options delivered right to your door! These include:
- Lazy Gourmet in Vancouver
- Daniel et Daniel in Toronto
- Devour Catering in Calgary
Not in one of these locations? We’ve got you covered with a fully stocked Snack Box of sweet and salty treats delivered to your door anywhere in Canada.
Who can attend?
Comedy from the Couch is open to everyone with no geographical boundaries. We anticipate participation from cities across Canada with hundreds of members from the vision loss community, their families, friends, and a few comedy junkies –all in support of advancing sight-saving research.
BONUS: Refer a friend to purchase a ticket who has never experienced any of FBC’s Comic Vision/Last Call or Comedy from the Couch events, and both of you will be entered to WIN extra Broil King BBQ tickets and access to the exclusive After Party with the comedians and special guests.
A variety of ticket packages are available starting at $150 for a single ticket. Each ticket package includes access to the show plus a chance to WIN a beautiful Broil King BBQ.
Spread the word and have fun by creating your own watch party with our Bubble Box for 6, or make it a cozy date night for two with the Sip & Graze package. For details and to purchase your tickets, visit comicvision.ca.
Whichever way you choose to participate, share the excitement of this virtual experience by spreading the word on social using #comedyfromthecouch and tagging @fightingblindnesscanada and @ComicVision.
We look forward to sharing the fun and laughter with you!
