Comedian Jonny Harris is on a mission to find humor in, well, the funniest of places. He's taking a journey across Canada to explore small towns on the ropes and to meet the people who remain fiercely proud to call these towns home. By immersing himself in the adventure of their everyday lives, Jonny comes to understand their passion for these places.
In each community, he mines enough material to put on an original stand-up comedy routine for the locals. In the process, he shows us that no matter what types of hardships people may face in this vast country, Canadians love to laugh at themselves.
Join us for a special showing from 7:00-8:00pm in the Town Hall Gymnasium on August 4th or enjoy it from home later than evening on CBC.
Here is a sneak peak of the Town of Berwick episode…
'If you've ever made eye contact with an alpaca, if you ever look an alpaca in the face, there's nothing less reassuring.' In this exclusive first look, Jonny visits an alpaca farm in beautiful Berwick, Nova Scotia.

Gardens on the map include the Soup Garden, Salad Garden, Salsa Garden, Odd Herb Garden, Lion’s Purple and Yellow Garden, and the Harley Lawrence Memorial Garden.
