About the Show

  • ONLINE

22 MINUTES, an award-winning and record-breaking Canadian comedy institution, is celebrating 22 years on television! Cast members Mark Critch, Cathy Jones, Shaun Majumder and Susan Kent savagely satirize Canadian politics and daily events. Politicians and celebrities frequently make guest appearances, some willingly, some unwillingly. No story is off limits, and no personality too big. In its 22nd season, 22 MINUTES continues to be one of Canada's best-known and top-rated comedy shows.
