Address: 1255 Rue Jeanne Mance, Montreal, QC, H5B 1E5

Fact: more than ever before, Canadian comedians and comedy content are being consumed here and around the globe. But don’t take our word for it … take Mark Forward’s and Rebecca Kohler’s words. Yes, Canadian comedy is so strong, we “double-doubled” down on two crazy Canucks for this year’s “Oh Comedy!” address. Last year, comedian, actor, and gadabout Mark Forward – a familiar face from stand-up world and TV land (including Letterkenny, Mr. D., and Fargo) – brought us his incisive insight and curmudgeonly commentary. This year, Mark is joined by Rebecca Kohler, who happens to also be a stand-up comedian and a writer on three of the biggest hits of the past year (maybe you’ve heard of Schitt’s Creek, Workin’ Moms, and Kim’s Convenience?). Together, they examine the many highs and occasional lows of the business of funny north of the 49th parallel, and try to put a figure on how much Canadian comedy actually contributes to our GDP. (Spoiler alert: it’s 95%.)
