Still Standing

(95 x ½-hour series)

Still Standing is a hilarious, irreverent, and affectionate adventure into small town Canada that celebrates the people who proudly choose to call those places home.

The show follows actor and comedian, Jonny Harris, as he journeys across the country exploring communities that are on the ropes and meets the locals who remain fiercely loyal to their hometowns.  Every small town has its characters and Jonny finds them and learns about what makes that town special.

In each community, he mines enough material to perform an original stand-up comedy routine for the locals at the end of his visit. The light-hearted roast pays homage to his hosts and shows us that no matter what hardships they face, there is always warmth, spirit, and a warm-hearted laugh to be had.
