The Best of 2019, part 1

Recently, we asked a bunch of friends to highlight some of the favorite comedy moments of 2019. Here’s a few we’ve received so far.

Isaiah Headen, Bad Medicine, Washington DC.

TikTok. I know it’s lame, but it reminds me of Vine so much. There are many good videos and I really do find myself laughing out loud when I browse TikTok at night… I’m so basic, but I’m sure I’ll think of something else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mC2eV2YJZCQ

Ellie Heath, Girl Brain, Edmonton, Alberta

This sketch (Car Snacks by Baroness von Sketch) has and will continue to be my favourite sketch I’ve seen in awhile. It’s just so so silly! 
Also, I had a really nice time in Philly, meeting all of you and hanging with some familiar friends from Toronto! 

Note from Josh: Ellie sent a YouTube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fpt5_CtazqI that is geoblocked in America. Darn CBC… To the best of my knowledge, this episode hasn’t aired on IFC in America yet. So we have something to look forward to.

Jennifer Ashleigh Lloyd, Not Oasis, Toronto

Favourite memory was when Not Oasis came to Philly Sketchfest!! We had the best time at the Ruba Club!

Aw, shucks! We loved hosting you all! And we’re pretty fond of the Ruba Club, too.
