VIDEO: 22 Minutes Behind the Scenes

When CBC Live visited the cast and crew of This Hour Has 22 Minutes this spring, the show's Shaun Majumder was there to welcome us to Halifax: "It's a bucket-load of silly on this set," he told CBC Live.

But the "silliness" he's talking about has been perfected over time, matured into a premium vintage, like a fine wine or whiskey - or an exceptionally long-running TV series.

Tonight, the CBC sketch comedy institution wraps its 20th season.

Tune into the episode at 8:30 p.m. ET.

But for a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making an episode, check out the video below.

In the clip, CBC Live talks to the writers, the producers and the stars - including founding cast member Cathy Jones - about how they pack an hour's worth of gags into 22 minutes.
