As we all start to prepare for the annual holiday shopping extravaganza, we suggest you think about how you can make this easier on yourself - gift cards. Who doesn't love a night out filled with fun and laughter? Does someone you know think they're hilarious and want to take a comedy class? A gift card sure would be a thoughtful gift, wouldn't it? Who knows, you could give the gift card that kickstarts the next Tina Fey's comedy career. We think that's just swell. If you do too, you can order gift cards online or call 312-337-3992.11/29/2013 Comments (0)
