Serious News Invades Small Town

It has been a while since we've spoken about the success of Jared Keeso, Nathan Dales, and the Letterkenny series on CraveTV, but it might be time to revisit the town of 5000 people and hear about their problems again. More appropriately, one Canadian news program decided to go into the Ontario city of Sudbury to investigate the Canadian comedy phenomenon. CTV's W5 and Kevin Newman ventured into the world that is Letterkenny, and they did an outstanding job at getting all the details of the town!

The clip is just over twenty minutes long, so settle in with a beverage and be prepared for some laughs, some details, and the good ol' boys of Letterkenny!
How great is that? Kudos to CTV and W5's Kevin Newman for diving into Letterkenny. In knowing Jared and Nathan, I have to say that their success is amazing, but it was hard not to see that this was going to explode after their YouTube shorts exploded virally. With their live shows starting up next week, there will undoubtedly be an infusion of Wayne and Daryl across the country very shortly.

I can't say enough good things about the success of Jared and Nathan and the entire cast and crew of Letterkenny. The success of the show is only a testament to how smart and how in tune with Canadian culture the show is, and it follows Jared's success on 19-2 which saw him win a number of awards for his work on that dramatic series.

Well done, gentlemen, and may the success continue until you decide to hang the skates and the costumes up!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
