It’s no joke that Canadians are funny, but where do they stand on the world stage? The larger spotlight tends to shine on the USA, so comedians are following it. But who is pointing the light in Canada’s direction? The comedy industry shares the country’s ‘small but mighty’ trademark, so how is their star system being supported? Who’s sticking around for the punchline? Hear from those at the centre of the business, in front of the curtain, and behind.
