Extra, Extra: Pat Thornton, Donald Trump, and Naheed Nenshi

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

Comedian Pat Thornton, on stage at the Comedy Bar during his 24-hour stand-up marathon.

  • Over the weekend, comedian Pat Thornton managed to do stand-up comedy for 24 hours straight, for the fourth time in four years. The stunt raised more than $25,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, an NGO that fights AIDS in Africa. Above, a photo of Thornton on stage at Comedy Bar, toward the end of the event. You can see the spent jokes piled up around his feet.
  • What’s the worst real-estate deal in town? Apparently, the Trump Tower, whose developer is suing buyers to prevent them from walking away.
  • Mayor Rob Ford has made a wager with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi: if the Argos lose the Grey Cup, our mayor will have to donate his weight in food to a Calgary food bank, and vice versa. Imagine Rob Ford, but filled with canned soup.
