21 Jan

086cleavagesOh my home town of Maple Ridge got a face full of funny shit last night.

Things I learned from our Sex & The Suburbs Show on Saturday January 21st, 2017

  • A fog machine aimed straight up Denise’s skirt is far funnier than anything we were trying to do in our sexy Beyonce entrance.
  • Jamie makes a damn fine replacement for the now retired Ellie Harvie
  • The sushi place around the corner WILL make you late for your call
  • Every woman who told stories in the ‘Improvised Talk Show’ have crazy weird lives.
  • That Improvised Talk Show format REALLY works

What a crazy bunch o’ fun working on this show was. We shot four episodes in March of 2016, then CBC Comedy got involved and we shot another two in November.

Watch all six episodes HERE on the CBC Comedy website.

Things I learned on The Smartass-ociates:

  • Ottawa has very politically savvy audiences. Weird.
  • Olympic Speed-skater Ivanie Blondin is really good at curling my hair
  • I will never be able to afford a home in Vancouver. Or Toronto. Maybe Sudbury
  • It’s hard to improvise a pitch to David Chilton in the ‘Lizard’s Pit’
  • Pouring maple syrup and chocolate sauce on DeAnne Smith is tasty fun
  • It’s pronounced ‘sen-shee-ant’ pipeline, not ‘sen-tee-ant’ pipeline
  • Never golf with Dave Hemstead
  • Jon Steinberg cares a lot about birds
  • VIA Rail trains make an excellent writer’s room
  • People get really excited about free mugs
  • If you get drunk on scotch and pickle juice after the first big day of taping, your nickname will forever be Pickle Juice. PJ for short.
