Humour Resources

About the Show

HUMOUR RESOURCES is a half-hour series starring Jon Dore as the new Human Resources Manager for ComedyTM. Each episode showcases three to four separate interviews with A-list comedians via webcam, with all conversations falling under a specific HR-related theme. From conflict resolution, to accountability, moral liability to personal hygiene, Jon takes great pleasure in analyzing and correcting the behaviour of the episode’s guest comedians.  

HUMOUR RESOURCES takes place under quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic as Jon balances his job and his home-life with his girlfriend Christina and her 6-year-old daughter Emma. While the meetings with comedians focus on Jon preaching the value of being accountable or proper time management, there is often a moral contrast shown from Jon’s real life; depicting a raw and unfiltered look at his work from home reality and misfortunes.

Special guests include: Sarah Silverman; Tom Green; Eric Andre; Scott Thompson; Reggie Watts; Nikki Glaser; The Lucas Bros; Ronny Chieng; Dave Merheje; DeAnne Smith; Rory Scovel; Debra DiGiovanni; Sophie Buddle; Courtney Gilmour; Arthur Simeon; Casey Corbin; Aisha Brown; and Kyle Brownrigg.

HUMOUR RESOURCES was developed and executive produced by Jon Dore, and developed, directed and executive produced by Adam Brodie and Dave Derewlany. Produced by Just For Laughs, the series is also executive produced by Bruce Hills and Marina Di Pancrazio. Zoe Rabnett and Nick Brazao are talent producers, and Anton Leo serves as the supervising producer. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Entertainment, Factual and Sports; Trish Williams is Executive Director, Scripted Content; Michelle Daly is Senior Director, Comedy, Scripted Content; and Greig Dymond is Executive in Charge of Production.
