MARK CRITCH Makes Me Laugh

Posted: November 20, 2011

I thought for a while about what to title this post… sometimes I go with a play on words or a summary of sorts, but somehow the straight up truth seemed the best.  Because he does!

Mark Critch - Top with Shaun Majumder, middle as 'Ned Bishop' on REPUBLIC OF DOYLE, bottom as Danny WilliamsHe does make me laugh – a LOT throughout this interview, always when he’s on stage doing his stand up, and every week during his hit show This Hour Has 22 Minutes.  What can I say? The fella is funny!

We dropped by the set at the CBC studios in Halifax, Nova Scotia on a Monday – the day the 22 minutes team tapes their show for broadcast the following night.

You’ll hear the hustle and bustle of the crew getting things ready around us, but Mark Critch graciously made time for us, and what a pleasure….

And what a chat… from working with great friend Shaun Majumder to his return to Republic of Doyle this coming season. We talk about family (his Dad, my Mom) and his homeland of Newfoundland & Labrador.  Yes we talk about former Premier Danny Williams, discuss his childhood inspirations, heck the man even pitches a stellar idea the tourism board of NL would go bananas and see (BTW - I call dibs).  It was great fun with a great guy.

Huge thanks to you Mr. Critch for allowing us the opportunity – you’re right sweet! SABS
