Mark Critch explores what it's really like growing up in Newfoundland in his new memoir

Mark Critch stops by the q studio to talk about his new memoir Son of a Critch: A Childish Newfoundland Memoir.
(Vanessa Nigro )

Comedian Mark Critch joins q host Tom Power to talk about his new memoir Son of a Critch. The book touches on Critch's 1980's childhood in Newfoundland, including an unfortunate moment when he got locked out of school on a fourth-floor window ledge... or that other time, when he faked an asthma attack to avoid being arrested by military police. He might even do his best Tom Power impersonation.
