Ever wonder who the funniest person in Canada is? Well on Monday night, the Canadian Comedy Awards answered that question.
Debra DiGiovanni (Who I know from Video on Trial) and Steve Patterson, who hosts CBC’s The Debaters took home the golden microphone stand. Actually, I’m not too sure what the award actually looks like, so let’s just go with the microphone stand, mmmkay? The hilarious, if not hard to understand, Nikki Payne won for Best Taped Live Performance.
Comedy awards for the best improv troupe, stand-up newcomer, best film, television show, sketch group, writing, directing and a handful of others were also handed out. You can click here to see the complete list of winners.
Someone who might be a little more well-known to you, The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee was awarded Canadian Comedy Person of the Year. Jason Priestly won Best Television Performance (Male) for his role on HBO Canada’s Call Me Fitz. I still haven’t seen this show, but it’s won so many awards, it’s pretty hard to ignore. If only I wasn’t too cheap to order HBO Canada.
Congrats to all the winners!
Speaking of comedy, did I ever show you the video of my 89 year old grandmother doing standup comedy……?
