Comedy Factory from CBC Radio: Episodes

Too bad laughter isn't the best medicine for the environment.
We've got the Debaters deciding the fate of the Senate, The Irrelevant Show smashing stereotypes, DNTO saving the animals and a whole lot of earthy humour. Pesticide-free.
Not cool enough for Lollapalooza? Not enough of a dirt-bag for Coachella? We have a DNTO story from the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival (where jean shorts and chevron tank-tops are the minority), The Debaters, and Archie gets gritty...like feet at Coachella.
Don't jinx it, but it's spring time in Canada. Time for words of wisdom from Coach at the Irrelevant Show, fewer embarrassing car crash stories (via DNTO), small talk at social gatherings with The Debaters and time to parade that royal baby around.
No need to worry about a bucket of water over your door with THIS podcast. Instead, we have Rick Mercer, an epic movie speech from the Irrelevant Show, a skimpy story from DNTO and a guilt trip about your old light bulbs from host Jane Testar.
We give Finance Minister Jim Flaherty a send-off with Rick Mercer and a sketch from the vault. The Irrelevant Show teaches us an ancient Canadian form of self-defence and the Debaters discuss the value of free edumacation...and apparently we need it.
Done with winter? Bieber? Deciding between apples and oranges? Threats of another Quebec referendum? Apologetic press conferences?
Commiserate with us in this podcast.

Canada brings home Olympic glory, while DNTO storyteller Mark Kuly steals meat from a buffet. Rick Mercer feels like Canada's election laws are coming in dead last and the Debaters (Trevor Boris and Alan Park)argue the value of reality TV.
