TORONTO'S COMEDY FESTIVAL
September 21 – 30, 2017 / Toronto, Ontario

And Footing the Bill Is

Why we love them:

Air Canada is the Cat’s PJs. Seriously. Even though they’re Canada’s largest full-service airline, they still treat you with care you’d expect from a mom ‘n pop outfit . They serve over 33 million customers (!) every year, and provide direct service to over 170 destinations on five continents, and possibly the moon. Okay, the moon part’s not true, but they will get you wherever you’ve gotta go. Air Canada is a founding member of Star Alliance™, the world’s most comprehensive air transportation network. We like to think of it as a Plane Posse. Also, whoever’s programming their in-flight entertainment is a straight-up genius. For reals. So good.

Hey, remember how boring radio was before Sirius XM? Commercials every five seconds, the same playlists, the same inane on-air “personalities” (we use that term VERY loosely), the same everything. Ugh. Lame. But, mercifully, no more. Sirius XM broadcasts more than 120 satellite radio channels (FROM SPACE!) featuring premier sports, news, talk, entertainment and commercial-free music. They also offer an array of content from the most recognized news and entertainment brands as well as from professional sports leagues including the NHL, NFL, MLB and CFL. We dare you to get bored by that. Scratch that, we double dare you. And you know what? That’s not even fair of us to do because it’s literally impossible. Booyah.

Since 2006, Beau’s has been brewing interesting, tasty beers using the best ingredients & local spring water. They take pride in creating unique, wonderful and certified organic craft beer, conceived with honest consideration for the environment and  local communities, and delivered with a sense of friendly relationship. And because they’re an award-winning, local, family-and-friends, organic, and totally DIY brewery. How cool is that? http://beaus.ca/

Canadian Heritage plays a huge role in the cultural happenings around the country. And what is JFL42 if not a cultural happening?! They have a hand in everything from arts, culture, and heritage, which represents $49.9 billion in the Canadian economy and over 630,000 jobs across the country. Who doesn’t love money and jobs, right?! Not only that, but celebration and participation are an important part of Canadian Heritage’s mandate! A governmental body whose purpose is to party? We love it!

Whether it’s centre stage with Arts & Life, in the dugout with their expanded Post Sports section or on the trading floor with the highly regarded Financial Post, each section of The National Post boasts a wealth of critical information and original insight. The coverage they feature from across the country and around the world is delivered with a distinctly Canadian voice and that is why we love them.

Considering that one out of every three Canadians calls Ontario home, you gotta think they’re onto something. The cultural diversity there’s off the charts, to the point that it kind of feels like the whole world’s right outside your door, which, if you think about it, saves you a ton on travel, exposes you to beautiful cultures, and makes for some spectacular eating. It’s also magnet for industry, which makes it a lot easier to find an/or create jobs, and thus, put a little change in your pocket. Ontario’s also a major epicentre of arts and innovation, so if you’re into having your mind blown and your heart swell, they’ve got you covered. Into outdoorsy stuff? Then you’ll probably lose your marbles over the province’s varied landscape, thousands of lakes, mystical forests, and super rad tourism spots. Basically, Ontario’s got something for everyone, which makes sense, given that almost everyone (in Canada) lives there. Feel free to join the party.

You need to laugh more than just 10 days out of the year. That’s why there’s the Comedy Network—so you can make with the ha-has year round! They’re also Canada’s first specialty comedy service (there’s a little Canadian pride for ya!) which airs comedy of all kinds, 24-hours-a-day.
