Red Man Laughing - The CBC National Comedy Special
CBC Radio One is pleased to present Red Man Laughing, a special hour of indigenous comedy, music and interviews hosted by stand up comic Ryan McMahon. After 3 successful seasons of the hit podcast, the shows format was tweaked & twisted into this 1 hour National comedy special!
In January 2014, Ryan invited a group of fellow aboriginal artists to join him onstage at the Capitol Theatre in Edmonton’s historic Fort Edmonton Park. The show was recorded over 2 sold out nights (honestly, we could have sold out for a week straight there was such a demand for tickets) at the historic theatre. The show aired during the 2014 National Aboriginal Day weekend.
Guests include champion hand-drum singer Fawn Wood, singer/songwriter Nick Sherman, author and film-maker Richard Van Camp, and Canada Reads winning author, Joseph Boyden.
