Which Canadian comedian is best at mocking Canadian stereotypes?
The country’s first black comedian, and now the first white comedian in Canada, is no stranger to controversy.
And he’s not afraid to get a little nasty.CBC Radio has chosen 10 of the country’s funniest comedians to put on their own cartoon version of the Canadian stereotype.
Here are the 10 comedians who deserve your vote:Nashville comedian David Gorman is known for his offbeat, satirical approach to the world, and this week he’ll appear on CBC Radio’s “The Joke Line” with his friend and fellow comedian, comedian Nick Henson.
The “joke line” is a sketch show hosted by Henson that he creates every Saturday, where the two men play off of each other’s jokes.
They have also collaborated on a short animated film called “The Ringer: Live from the Jokeline,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year.
Henson, who also hosts “The Colbert Report,” said he first got the idea for the sketch show while watching an episode of “The Big Bang Theory” a few years ago.
He said he was surprised to see how much the show had changed over the years.
“There are a lot of stereotypes in comedy, and I think the one I find myself in the most is that comedians are all white dudes.
And the stereotype of a black guy is, well, that’s just how it is, you know?”
Henson said he also had to learn to live with that when he first started in the field of comedy, he felt it was “just a little bit of a slap in the face.”
But, after he got the chance to work with his fellow Canadians, he realized that it was a lot more than that.
Hanson said he started seeing the funny side of comedians when he started at the University of Saskatchewan as a student.
He says that the joke line, while not a show about himself, had an effect on his personality.
“I was the only black guy in the group, and they’d go up to me and say, ‘Oh you’re the funniest person we ever met,'” Henson said.
“So, when I said, ‘I’m a comedian, I don’t have a stand-up set-up, but I have a comedy show,'” he said, laughing.
“And I said ‘OK, well I do have a show.'”
The two are known for their offbeat approach to life, and their comedy is always about how they feel.
The two comedians will have a bit of fun with the stereotypes in their show, including the fact that they are both fat slags.
Henson says the show will also have a little something for everyone.
“We have a lot less comedy than we thought we would, but the show has a lot to do with that,” he said.
“I don’t think there’s any comedy that isn’t really about how you feel.”
Henson is the first black Canadian comedian to appear on The Joke-Line, which airs on CBC Television and on CBC radio.
Hens show will air in February at 7 p.m. ET.
