Hey everyone, just wanted to drop an update about some shows coming up this December. I’ll be appearing at the Bad Dog Theatre this month in the (now) annual holiday favourite, It’s a Wonderful Improvised Life. Not to mention a show I’ve been really looking forward to – Geoff Hendry & Associates Holiday Party for Hope Air. This is a great fundraiser for Hope Air, a charity that provides airfare for people to get to medical treatment. I’ll be doing PowerPoint Karaoke, along with one of my favourite improvisers, Jen Goodhue.
I had a great time at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival this past month, and Sunday Night Live’s been humming along nicely (this week with host Mark Debonis). Brian Crosby and I also have new episodes of The Puffin – you can listen to that here.
Oh, the McDonalds commercial I shot in September is finally airing. Seems to mostly be on CBC. Don’t feel pressured to buy muffins, though – I already got paid, regardless.
And finally, I’m linking a tribute to Leslie Nielsen. He is without question one of the funniest, most charming, subtle, and deadpan comedic actors of all time, and his movies had a huge impact on me as a kid. I remember my friends and I having our minds blown watching Airplane, The Naked Gun movies, and Hot Shots, to name a few. Heck, even in Men With Brooms a few years back he stole the show. A toast, to Leslie Nielsen!
