Although humour is a very personal thing, comedy nights at Arts Place have become the hot ticket in Canmore. Currently hosted by local comedy stand up Scott Dumas the Friday comedy club has become a regular feature for both locals and visitors to the town. Not all performances are suitable for children! However, this is just another excellent use of the venue in Canmore and covers, yet again, another place in the world of entertainment.
