Stop Podcasting Yourself wins second Canadian Comedy Award


Tonight in Ottawa, Stop Podcasting Yourself won the award for Best Podcast at the 2013 Canadian Comedy Awards. We weren't able to make it to the ceremony this year but we're thrilled to have won the award both years it's been a category.

Thanks to all who voted and to the guests who make the show so much fun. Now I guess we need to find some slime.

Stop Podcasting Yourself wins Canadian Comedy Award


This past Sunday, Stop Podcasting Yourself won the award for Best Podcast at the 2012 Canadian Comedy Awards. It's the first time podcasting has been included in the CCAs, and we're thrilled about it.

We want to thank everyone who voted for us and has supported the show. And thanks to those of you who sent us your congratulations, and to a lesser extent kudos. It's also great to see that many of our past guests, including members of This is That, and Picnicface won as well.

Thanks to all who came to see us in Toronto this past weekend. It was so great to meet you, and we'll get the recording of the live show posted in the next couple of days.

Last but not least, thanks to Bret "The Hitman" Hart for posing for a picture with us.

Hello Stop Podcasting Yourself fans. In case you haven't heard, the hosts of the show and a couple of SPY regulars got together to make a comedy pilot for CBC radio.

The show is called Adultery, and it's about how people of our generation don’t have the skills or accomplishments that we believe came so naturally to our parents. It’s also super funny.

It features Charlie Demers and Erica Sigurdson as hosts, and our own Graham Clark is the guest who has to undertake the grown-up task of giving a haircut to a child in a kitchen. Dave Shumka co-produced and edited the show.

Download the mp3 here.

It's just a pilot, so any positive feedback we get would be appreciated. Send that to cbcadultery@gmail.com or tweet it to @CBCAdultery.
