Last weekend was one of my most memorable weekends to date. I didn’t go away, I didn’t have many wild nights but I did have special moments. One of those moments that I’d like to share with you guys, was my first time attending a comedy show courtesy of American Express Canada. On Sunday evening, I attended the Oddball Comedy Festival at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre with my friend Sasha Exeter of SoSasha.com.Running fashionably late (as per usual), we got to the Amp just in time to part take in a few of the perks that Amex cardholders have access to on a regular basis ie: line bypass. I don’t know about you, but the last thing that I want to do on a hot summer night is wait in a huge line up. Solely by being an Amex Cardmember you’re privy to skipping the line and entering the venue through a separate gate.
We quickly found our seats, got comfortable and braced ourselves for the opening acts. Being a Gemini, I can’t stay still for too long no matter how much fun I am having. Sasha and I decided to take a little break between performers and venture off into the Amex lounge for a bite or two. If you get the chance to hang out in the Amex lounge make sure to try the Knife-Pulled Pork sandwich from Barque Smokehouse, it’s delicious! We finished up our experience in the lounge with some s’mores, sparkling water and recapping our favourite performers so far.We ended up making our way back to our seats to catch the headliners, Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer. The rest of the night was filled with numerous outbursts of laughter, surprised faces and unforgettable moments. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard, and I couldn’t think of a better way to end the summer than this experience. But, just because the warm weather is behind us doesn’t mean these great experiences have to end. I am definitely going to stay tuned to my Front Of The Line Entertainment e-updates for upcoming pre sales to some of the hottest shows for the rest of the year.The best part about it though, is that American Express provides access to events like this and others (entertainment and lifestyle) all the time to their Cardmembers.

#ThisMoment will definitely go down in the books and I’ll be looking forward to my next comedy show experience!
Until next time,
