    1. @Jonathan Gould You know, even *if* it was “tax payer funded comedy” I’m still totally fine with my tax contribution going to fund this level of performance art. Canadians should be a little more appreciative of the investment into the arts that our respective Federal and, to a lesser degree, Provincial governments make. Canada can be very proud that our comics can stand on the world stage and represent our values as Canadians so well, and packaged in an extremely funny brand of humour. Canadians are extremely sharp witted. Shall I start naming a few of Canada’s more well known comics??
      Dan Aykroyd, Leslie Nielsen, Mike Myers, Dave Foley, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short…and that’s just a start.
      Shows and productions might include Kids in the Hall, This Hour has 22 Minutes, Codco, SCTV.
      If any or all of this was “tax payer funded”, where can I donate more?

    1. Agreed. She talked about herself, couldn’t help but vent her TDS, and she clearly didn’t read his memoir.
