Just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday, Just For Laughs ComedyPRO presents Mark Forward’s Oh Comedy! A Canadian Perspective.

Oh Comedy! will do what everyone KNOWS can’t be done. It will make fun of, attack and ridicule that strong and powerful maple tree of success — the Canadian comedy industry.

Mark Andrew Forward (who of course you’ve all heard of, because he’s spent 17 years in Canadian comedy, which works tirelessly promoting its own talent like no other industry in the world) will take you on a journey of all the ups and downs of the past year.

He’ll shine a light on our billions of success stories, and help to explain our one or two tiny failures.

Canadian comedy has a rich history of supplying America with endless talent (just ask our buddy ‘Jim’). But what are the stories of the ones that stayed behind?

Hear it all, Thursday, July 27 at 12:00 Noon in the Inspiration Room, Hyatt Regency Montreal.

Included with your ComedyPRO Industry, Industry Plus or Express Pass. Regular prices apply. Now on sale through Eventbrite.

Attending the Just For Laughs Festival at night? You can also catch Mark’s latest show Mark Forward Wins All the Awards, part of this year’s ZoøFest.

And for those of you who need a primer, here’s some background on Mark Forward:

Mark is a multi-Canadian Comedy Award winner and has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and will be making his eighth appearance at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal this July. He has appeared on John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show on Comedy Central, and has made multiple appearances on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS.

Also an accomplished actor, Mark was a writer and cast member on The Jon Dore Television Show on IFC and The Comedy Network, and can currently be seen on the latest season of FX’s Fargo, and CraveTV’s Letterkenny.

If you’re a believer in ‘sunny ways’, logger shirts and poutine made with rubber cheese, then this is the event for you!
