This Thursday, August 18, Montreal’s The Comedy Nest hosts “Comedy with a Cause,” a stand-up comedy show to benefit the Humane Society International/Canada.

Tickets are $20 and all profits from the evening support HSI/Canada’s efforts to rescue animals in this country and across the globe. They may be purchased at the HSI/Canada Offices, or by phone.
