CBC today announced the renewal of the acclaimed original series Still Standing. Starring comedian Jonny Harris and winner of the 2016 Canadian Screen Award for Best Factual Series, Still Standing has been renewed for a third season (13 x 30). Production is currently underway.
Still Standing – Season 2 continues with all-new episodes Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT)
Still Standing follows Canadian comedian Jonny Harris (Murdoch Mysteries) as he explores the country, veering off the main highway to discover the hidden comedy in Canada’s far-flung small towns. Each week, Jonny takes a hilarious and heart-warming journey to find humour in the unlikeliest of places — small towns on the ropes. After immersing himself in the lives of local characters and unearthing the tall tales in these tiny towns, Jonny delivers a rousing original stand-up comedy routine — a toast, not a roast — for the whole community. Upcoming episodes include a visit to Canada’s most northerly mosque in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, sharp-shooting with a former Olympian in Omemee, Ontario, and welcoming a recently-arrived Syrian family in Mabou, Nova Scotia.
