– Week’s worth of Webisodes to be re-capped on The Comedy Network, Friday’s at 8:30 p.m. –

– Comics Peter Oldring and Pat Kelly star as Good Morning World’s inept hosts –

Toronto, Ontario (November 1, 2007) – The Comedy Network is about to get even more cyber-active with the premiere of its newest original production, Good Morning World. Premiering Monday, November 12 on thecomedynetwork.ca, the five-to-seven minute webisodes of this hilarious mock morning show will be available each weekday morning for viewing on the website’s broadband player. The week’s worth of webisodes will then be re-capped in a half-hour broadcast episode, Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, beginning November 16, exclusively on The Comedy Network.

Good Morning World, stars Calgary natives Peter Oldring and Pat Kelly as overly-tanned and peppy alter egos, Andy Peppers and Allister Coulter, who from their cheesy 80’s style studio, parody the worst of morning show stereotypes. Together, they cook up the usual morning show diet of mindless puerile banter, with a side of irony, sarcasm and satire and mix it with some quirky editing and canned segments on cooking, exercise and home improvements.

In week one, the spunky Good Morning World duo introduce their daily ritual “What’s In This Mug” (surprise contents include Banana Yogurt, Bong Water and Gin); Allister instructs viewers in how to conduct a bi-annual umbrella check-up; and Andy demonstrates how to enjoy doughnuts disguised as bran muffins to save people from the judging eyes of health nuts. To cap the week off, Andy and Allister provide tips to interested cities on putting together a successful Olympic bid.

Oldring and Kelly created Good Morning World as a pet project and started posting episodes to Goodmorningworld.com in July, 2006. In the year that followed, Andy and Allister’s crazy antics attracted both a cult following online and the eye of The Comedy Network. Oldring and Kelly will create 130 webisodes and 26 broadcast episodes to air on the network this season.

    CLEARLY A SHOW WORTHY OF INCREASING THE SUCKAGE OF THE COMEDY NETWORK. WATCHING GOOD MORNING WORLD IS ABOUT AS FUNNY AS WATCHING PAINT DRY OR HAVING YOUR NUTS IN A VICE GRIP. I NEED TO GET A LIFE AS I WATCH FAR TO MUCH OF THIS CHANNEL. PARODY….NOT! I’D RATHER WATCH THAT HUMORLESS DYKE ELVIRA KURT THAN THIS PIECE OF CRAP!

    It is simply the funniest program on the Comedy Network. Good Morning World is hysterical. Not sure why the Comedy Network does not promote it more or do more broadcast shows. We prefer watching it on TC rather than the PC.

  • This is the funniest show on television, it even beats out Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    I have a feeling it will be canceled due to the Americanized morons that seem to be infesting our country lately. Punched Up was hated and was a kick ass show. All good Canadian shows get canceled, while total crap like Trailer Park Boys is loved by ever drunken college kid.

    this is the most pathetic piece of work, needs to be taken off!

  • John

    This has got to be the stupidest show on television. It never ceases to amaze me what sort of junk gets put on the air!

  • Amanda

  • There’s a bunch of trolls, dougie is one of them, I’ve seen him on IMDb.. Going around flaming every single Canadian show on the comedy network..

    What a douche.

  • marlene

    Wow this more refreshing than other morning show I have ever seen . And no inaccurate weather man lol …….Sorry breakfast television Iam hooked!!!!

  • fuck you

    This has to be one of the stupidest shows I’ve watched over the years, I watched it a few times to give it a chance to try and find one funny thing, not once did I laugh, in fact I had to raze an eyebrow a few times from how un-funny it was. I’d rather watch old re-runs of Tom Greens old show, the crap where he’d suck off a cow or whatever. Seriously though, this show is fucking lame, get it off the air fast, why does the Comedy Network have such crappy shows? The cartoons are fine, south park, the simpsons and whatnot, but wow this just sucks, you’d have to be half retarded to find that show funny. They should try showing movies, good comedy’s.

    I love these guys! Good Morning World is a painfully accurate satire of those inane morning shows that every TV channel cooks up. Throw a couple of smiling plastic non-entities out there to sip their “coffee” and talk endlessly to uninteresting guests about asinine crap that no intelligent person gives a hoot about.

    Andy and Allister do it better than anyone else! Brilliant!

    Hey, I love these guys! They have great ideas, one of which I used to great advantage! Remember the ball that is a great parking pointer in your garage, works like a hot damn; and if anyone doubts that, I have pictures to prove it!!! My parking exploits are at a minimum now, the smiley face ball helps me park perfectly every time!!!
