I would’ve watched the hell outta this.
Io9 has all the info on the greatest blacksploitation spin-off that never existed.
Somewhere, in an alternate universe, Lando had his own TV series and the Ewoks hawked Colt 45.
My good friend and comedy pal Kevin Janus runs a great Canadian-themed comedy show in New York City called The Comedy Igloo …
So, naturally, I made a video for the show.
Here’s Kevin’s intro, from the show:
We here at The Comedy Igloo are committed to bringing you breaking
Canadian news wherever it is happening, around the globe. Tonight, we bring you a special report filed by Sergeant First Class Benari Lee
Poulten all the way from Kandahar, Afghanistan — or as we like to
call it Canadahar.
I present my writing partner, good friend, fellow Sophisticate… And our Senior Afghani-Can Correspondent, G.I. Jew….
In 1997, while Phil Hartman was enjoying his post-SNL fame in primetime with NewsRadio, a 19-year-old aspiring comedian named Mike Scott wrote Hartman a letter and included an audio recording of his early routines. Amazingly, Scott not only received a reply, but also Hartman’s honest assessment of the recording.
There’s more than a bit of Hartman’s letter that serves as sound advice to any young would-be comedian or artist. -The Comics Comic
Thanks for caring and sharing! Phil Hartman is, was, always the best.
More reasons to love Phil Hartman.
Happy Canada Day, ya crazy cats and dolls! This time last year, the dashing Mr. Kevin Janus and myself were performing as the critically acclaimed and widely-celebrated* NYC comedy duo, The Sophisticates. In this video, we take a gander at some CBC programming and what Canada’s version of “24” would look like… RUSH JUSTICE!
In the True North, strong and free…. when Peace, Order and Good Government is threatened … an elite force of Canadian counter-terrorism operatives use their own brand of interrogation techniques to elicit information no other country has been able to. It’s Rush Justice! Only on CBC.

And here’s the RUSH JUSTICE SEASON FINALE!
