If travellers love to laugh on their vacation, seeing a fun comedy show in Ottawa may be a great way to relax and have a few chuckles. Famous comedian and TV personality Demetri Martin will be performing at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre this January 14th, delighting audience members with his quirky sense of humour and clever skits.
Martin has had a large presence on Comedy Central with both his appearances on the Daily Show and his own hilarious programme, Important Things With Demetri Martin, which combines everyday observations with a dry and humorous explanation. He has been featured at various concerts, festivals, movies and events throughout the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe festival and an appearance in the film The Rocker.
As a New York native, many of his skits and comedy sketches are raw and unfiltered, yet have a subtle wit, which may be due to his background as a Yale University graduate. Travellers who are looking for a unique attraction to check out while on holiday in Ottawa should not miss Demetri Martin’s comedy show, which could be a fantastic night for couples or a memorable girl’s getaway.
This show may have some mature themes, so travellers with small children may wish to attend an alternative family friendly event instead. A few weeks after the comedy show, the Scotiabank Place will be hosting a classic event that had been enjoyed by families for generations. Disney on Ice comes to Canada’s capital city this February 15th through the 19th for several shows, so those on holiday this winter can be sure to catch one of the great performances.
Called Treasure Trove, this show features many favourite characters from some of the best Disney animated films of all time. Travellers may see the Pride Lands reinvented on ice as Simba from the Lion King goes on an adventure with his two best friends, Timon and Pumba. Other famous characters in this rink-side spectacle include Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and more. Those who purchase tickets for their children who are 12 and under can receive special discounts. Large groups also can enjoy special rates, making Disney on Ice the ideal event for a big family reunion while on holiday.
Families on vacation in Ottawa can check out Disney on Ice this winter for a fun-filled evening of ice skating and entertainment.
