Although the taping of Season 14 Comedy Now!, a comedy TV show broadcasted on CTV and The Comedy Network, is now over, I had the pleasure to attend 2 out of the 4 nights (thanks to couple of friends who work there). Free shows occurred every night from Wednesday, July 14th to Saturday, July 17th 2010 at the Masonic Temple – MTV building on Yonge St. and Davenport St.
Knowing that Russell Peters and Sugar Sammy got their first big break on Comedy Now!, I was expecting to see at least one great performance out of the four. Instead, every stand-up act was hilarious, different and special in its own way. I was very surprised at the quality of stand up! The four brilliant comedians I got a pleasure to laugh with were Mark Little, Richard Ryder, Jonny Harris and Ali Rizvi Badshah. My personal 2 favourites were Jonny Harris – an actor from Murdoch Mysteries, and Mark Little. Nonetheless, if you get a chance to see any of these guys, I’m sure you’ll have a great time.
Currently, Season 12 is on CTV every Saturday night at 10pm. You can also check out the episodes online at http://shows.ctv.ca/ComedyNow.aspx
Super special thanks to Nadine and Andrew, as well as the rest of the CTV/ MTV employees for organizing the show, and getting me in hassle free.
