On Tuesday morning I was at the press conference for the Canadian Comedy Awards.  Truthfully, I had never heard of the awards but I’ve always thought comedy was the hardest form of entertainment, so I’m happy to see that so many hard-working Canadians will be getting recognition for their incredibly funny work!

Here are some of the nominees. Make sure you check out the website to see the complete list!  The Canadian Comedy Awards will be handed out this October!

Shockingly the entire cast of Video on Trial was ignored.  (You can take that as a sarcastic remark or not.)

Congrats to all the nominees, I wish I could be 5% as funny as you are!
