CBC Brings the Funny to Canadian Comedy Awards Nominations


If you were on CBC in the last year, and if, during that time, you made someone laugh, you're probably up for a Canadian Comedy Award.

The full list of 2013 nominations are here, after being announced in Toronto Wednesday night.

CBC TV series Mr. D, This Hour Has 22 Minutes and The Ron James Show dominate the television category, while The Debaters, The Irrelevant Show and This is That got nods in the Best Radio Program race. (Their only competition in the category? Anything Goes with Darren Frost & Dave Martin - specifically an episode that featured a CBC star: Ron James.)

You'll find so many more familiar names throughout the nominations list. Gerry Dee and Steve Patterson are both up for Canadian Comedy Person of the Year, for instance - facing off against Colin Mochrie, Sugar Sammy and Lauren Ash (who, now that we think of it, guest starred on a recent episode of CBC's Cracked).

With so many CBC'ers in the mix, it's started a Canadian Comedy love-in on Twitter:

But even if you're not a Canadian comic (never mind one affiliated with the CBC) there's a way to get involved in this annual honour.

Before the winners are revealed October 6 in Ottawa as part of the Canadian Comedy Awards Festival, you can cast your vote in the major categories.

Starting June 17, anyone can vote on the following prizes online: Best TV Show, Best Film, Best Web Series, Best Web Clip, Best Podcast, Best Radio Clip and Comedy Person of the Year.

Visit the awards' website for more info.

We're not going to tell you to vote for CBC talent, if only 'cause it'll be pretty hard not to.
