DERBY LINE — Comedian Jonny Harris is on a journey across Canada exploring small towns on the ropes, and meeting the people who remain fiercely proud to call these towns home. In each community, he mines enough material to put on an original stand-up comedy routine for the locals. In the process he is filming a new show for CBC, called “Still Standing.”
As part of the tour, Harris is putting on a free comedy show Sunday, May 17 at the Haskell Opera House. A film crew will be on hand recording parts of the show for CBC.
Originally from Pouch Cove, Newfoundland & Labrador, Harris has appeared regularly at The Halifax Comedy Festival, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and on CBC Radio’s The Debaters.
He has appeared as both a stand-up and sketch comic at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival.
The show will take place: Sunday, May 17, 2015
At: The Haskell Opera House
Doors open: 6:00 p.m.
Show starts: 6:30 p.m.
Still Standing will premieres June 22nd, 9 p.m. EST, on CBC.
