In the news: Air Farce 300th episode live

From Bill Brioux of the Canadian Press:

  • Air Farce joins exclusive TV club
    “Three hundred episodes. In North America, it is a pretty exclusive TV club. Only ‘The Simpsons’ (closing in on 400) and ‘Law & Order’ are currently beyond that mark in terms of prime-time entertainment fare. As of Friday, add ‘Royal Canadian Air Farce’ to the list.”

From Bill Harris of Sun Media:

  • Royal Canadian Air Farce goes live
    “Royal Canadian Air Farce always has a live feel to it. But tonight actually marks the first live TV show the comedy troupe ever has done.”

From Jim Bawden of the Toronto Star:

  • Landmark show’s stars out in full Farce: Before action-packed 300th, series original Roger Abbott reflects on politicians, new talent – and camels
    Tonight’s hour-long special will be packed with guest stars, including Little Mosque on the Prairie‘s Sitara Hewitt, Sheila McCarthy and Carlo Rota, plus Fred Ewanuick from Corner Gas, comedian Mary Walsh and some additional guest surprises.”
