Red Man Laughing marks Aboriginal Day
Indigenous comedy and music, hosted by Ryan McMahon, airs 2:00 on June 20 on CBC Radio One
CBC Radio One is pleased to present Red Man Laughing, a special hour of indigenous comedy, music and interviews hosted by stand up comic Ryan McMahon.
A few months back, Ryan invited a group of fellow aboriginal artists to join him onstage at the Capitol theatre in Edmonton’s historic Fort Edmonton Park.
Guests include champion hand-drum singer Fawn Wood, singer/songwriter Nick Sherman, author and film-maker Richard Van Camp, and Canada Reads winning author, Joseph Boyden.
Check out the video for a sneak peek of what you will hear on this radio special. Ryan reminds us of just a few of the contributions that Indigenous Peoples have contributed to Canada, in a comedic sketch called "You're Welcome, Canada".
