Comedians For Prime Minister

I will always love Canada’s political commentary comedy. Going back to the Frantics from the 70s and the Royal Canadian Air Farce parading its way across CBC radio and now television, Canadian hilarity has always aimed a pointed and bitter attack at the politicians and bigwigs who always seem to take their lives too seriously.

The other benefit is that often through humour regular joe canadians like myself can see a little bit more of how the “bigwigs” bumble their way through their jobs without really paying attention to the wishes of everyday canucks like myself.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes is probably my favourite. Where else can you get fake news, hilarious character sketches, and the overarching lampooning of everyone in Canada whose brain is too big for their britches?? I laugh out loud every week for the show. Shaun Majumder, Cathy Jones, Gavin Crawford and Mark Critch are Canada’s best political minds – why aren’t they running for parliament to finally get those know-it-all Conservatives out of power with some good old fashioned satire??
