TV Eh B Cs podcast 17 – Jonathan Torrens’ Reflections on Canadianity

Jonathan2015-highresJust over the past couple of years alone, in addition to winning a Canadian Screen Award playing Robert Cheeley on Mr. D., he was the host of Wipeout Canada and TV with TV’s Jonathan Torrens on TVTropolis, on which – in addition to hosting – he serves as writer/producer/director. He was also part of the multi-award winning sitcom Call Me Fitz on HBO Canada.

Before that, Torrens was seen as “Gerald” on Spike TV’s popular reality show parody Joe Schmo 2. Hosting stints include both The Kids Are in Charge for the Travel Channel U.S. and Popularity Contest for CMT U.S., as well as co-anchoring and reporting on Reality Remix, Fox’s Reality Channel’s daily flagship show, and making frequent appearances on the E! Network’s popular 50 Most…clip shows.

He’s been dropping rhymes for years as J-Roc on the infectious Trailer Park Boys. His work on five seasons (225 episodes) of Jonovision earned a total of 7 Gemini Award nominations.

Oh… and there was about a decade’s worth of Street Cents that EVERYONE growing up in 90’s Canada remembers.

He’s also currently co-hosting a podcast with Our Lady Peace’s Jeremy Taggart called Canadianity.
