Ever wonder who the funniest person in Canada is?Â 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 CBCâ€™s The Debaters took home the golden microphone stand.Â Actually, Iâ€™m not too sure what the award actually looks like, so letâ€™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.Â You can click here to see the complete list of winners.
Someone who might be a little more well-known to you, The Daily Showâ€™s Samantha Bee was awarded Canadian Comedy Person of the Year. Jason Priestly won Best Television Performance (Male) for his role on HBO Canadaâ€™s Call Me Fitz.Â I still havenâ€™t seen this show, but itâ€™s won so many awards, itâ€™s pretty hard to ignore.Â If only I wasnâ€™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 comedyâ€¦â€¦?
I haven’t checked in here for some time because I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂
