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.

On Saturday January 11, 2014…my episode of The Debaters with the amazing Patrick McKenna will be re-airing on CBC Radio 1.

Just because he's holding a trophy, doesn't mean he won.

We debate the merits of fireworks…of which I despise.

It's the Turducken of literature!

Hey cool! My latest episode of The Debaters aired today at 1pm! I debated the very hilarious Patrick McKenna about whether or not fireworks are dumb.

I caught the episode while driving back from dropping my boyfriend off at the airport. Enjoyed it so much, I missed my exit and ended up getting lost in the suburbs of Toronto, making my head explode like the fireworks I hate so much.

If you missed it, click HERE for sample giggle!

And for fun, here’s a terrible photo of me backstage trying to get The Debater’s backdrop in a shot!
