Great evening, great event.


The Cracking Up the Capital Grande Finale, Feb. 8 at the NAC was a laff-riot sell-out. Patrick McKenna and Mary Walsh co-hosted the event, which saw a cracking line-up of Canadian laffters entertaining a full house. Rick Mercer was at his eloquent best when he accepted the Canadian Comedy Achievement Award. He spoke movingly of the ongoing fight against bullying, a common theme for the evening.

Proceeds from CUTC help support a variety of mental-health organizations and initiatives in Ottawa and the area.
