John Neil

If you take their last names it sounds like a porn star

Candy Young

You guys gotta watch more canadian tv. Yes KITH is the best but theres lots of other good ones out there. There is a tv special called Talking to Americans that aired in Canada and if you can find it watch it cause it's hilarious (everything the guy says is total bull) Also don't forget that Canada is the Funniest Country on Earth. John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley, Mike Meyers, Jim Carrey, Dan Akroid. Also we created SNL which I have been told isn't that good anymore but I'm 16 so it's not like I've really watched many of the older shows. We also have SCTV which although wasn't hysterical it gave us Bob and Doug so take off eh. Canada is the funniest Nation here

Chris Farley and John Belushi arn't Canadian. :p

Anyway, the list goes on......some of my favs.

Phil Hartmen
David Steinberg
The entire SCTV staff
Rick Mercer
Mary Walsh.................and dozens of other talented stand ups.

I haven't watched much SCTV mostly cause it's on at 6:30 in the morning but the few shows i've watched haven't been that good. Bob and Doug are however muy heroes. And i thought of one more great canadian Leslie Nielson

Or, John Candy as Magnum PEI; excitement and action on Prince Edward Island. :laugh:

Come on, THAT's funny.

08-16-2006, 05:19 PM
ya ok now that i've heard that one I'm gonna have to start gettting up at 6:30 to watch SCTV. And Rick Mercer, Mary Walsh and the rest of the people who have done 22 minutes are all great

My Canadian friends introduced me to "Talking to Americans." It pissed me off, not because I'm American, but for the same reason I don't like "Jaywalking" on Leno. It's so easy to find idiots and demonstrate their idiocy. I don't think it's wrong to laugh at people for acting ignorantly, but it's only funny when they're putting themselves out there. If an American made a website about Canadian geography and couldn't name the provinces, that would be funny. But if you just ask some schmuck and they get it wrong, then they're just dumb. No joke.

I like Russell Peters and Jeremy Hotz.

I haven't seen enough of Nikki Payne, to like or dislike.

Russell Peters: http://www.blowupthemoon.com/community/newreply.php?action=newreply&threadid=4008&

Not his funniest, but funny nonetheless.
