Bring them back if you want to survive the sharpened knives, CBC
Yeah, but without any wokies. They can't do comedy.

The only one with the cajones to be politically incorrect is Russell Peters. :up:

Even though Rick Mercer is openly gay, I’m willing to bet he isn’t a huge fan of all this politically correct wokeism bull *bleep*, and is still able to write and perform good old fashioned comedy.

Ron James, Russell Peters and Rick Mercer.

R^3 (R cubed or Reality cubed)

I'd watch it on any Canadian channel.

We all remember this guy, one of the CBC greats.

The country needs CBC to be better,' legendary broadcaster Peter Mansbridge slams CBC leadership
I think the country absolutely needs the CBC. Do they need the CBC they’ve got right now? Probably not. They need it to be better."

Thanks for telling it like it is, Peter. But will anyone listen?

Flash thought….wasn’t there also Mr. Canoehead? Bashed into all and sundry every time he moved? He epitomized the bull in a china shop….nothing was safe or secure with him around.

Who’d have thought it’d be so true now with the ego and swelled head sported by our now barely elected PM? [icon_lol2.gif]

That was a different Canadian comedy troupe - the Frantics. I was a big fan of them as well.

Yes, and it made everyone laugh.

Oh, for the good old days when comedy was just comedy. Now it is snide, aggrieved, foul mouthed and not recalled with fondness.

Wayne and Shuster was another good comedy variety show.

Oh, for sure…laugh forever with W&S.

One episode sticks in my mind each and every time I MUST do housework…one of them is scattering flour about on the furniture and claims to be “dusting”

The episode "The Unholy Goalie" was a classic Wayne and Shuster, and just so Canadian. A total "reimagining" of the classic story "The Devil and Daniel Webster". You had to be a Canadian to even get half the jokes. The line where Frank Schuster, playing the devil, says to Johnny Wayne, the unholy goalie, after Johnny Wayne brings in Alan Eagleson as his representation: "Alan Eagleson!! Going over my head eh??" Oh man, classic Canadiana....oh CBC...you have lost your way, and it is to weep.
