Join Train Wreck Comedy on Saturday, October 22 at the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country for a night of unforgettable comedy with CBC Radio’s Ali Hassan and his new touring comedy show, “Does This Taste Funny?”
DOES THIS TASTE FUNNY?
Deconstructing a chef’s journey from food to comedy
Ali Hassan’s career plans started off as simply as anyone’s: become a chef, get a food show on television, get a second food show on television, be the face of the network and have oven mitts with his face on them. But sometimes things get in the way of your dreams: like your parents’ disappointment, your family of four children and your successful comedy career.
This show is a hilarious exposition of Ali’s journey in and out of the culinary world in which he spent 12 years. Think Eat, Pray, Love….minus the Prayer.
