Description

This Is That is a current affairs program that doesn't just talk about the issues, it fabricates them. Nothing is off limits - if it's relevant to Canadians, we'll find out the "This" and the "That" of the story. Each week, hosts Pat Kelly and Peter Oldring introduce you to the voices and stories that give this country character in this 100% improvised, satirical send-up of public radio.

Very Funny

I have only listened to one episode but this is great satire and it is done in the dry journalistic style of the CBC. I can almost imagine the guy finishing by saying "For the National Im Pat Kelly."

Kelly & Oldring: 2 peas in a pod

From their humble beginnings as share croppers in Okotoks, Patrick O'Flannel Kelly and Peter Petey Pete Oldring, have explored the farthest reaches of Canada in search of recognition. Patrick (or Patty to his friends) started his entertainment career writing the fine print on the back of greeting cards. Peter (Peter to his friends) went off to Theatre School, where he was asked to leave after a run-in with a Dialect Coach and a glass of rum. Both down on their luck, they teamed up and a wrote a joke for Second City. It was rejected. But, this was the start they needed. They wrote some limericks: 400 in all. Brimming with confidence - and a goodly amount of insouscience - they risked their life savings and self-published "THERE ONCE WAS A GUY FROM KAPUKASING: Limericks in the Key of Life." Scathing reviews and a public uninterested in limerickery meant that sales of the book were not good. Compounding that, they had overestimated production requirements: printing 200,000 hardbound coffee-table books (that ultimately sold 19 copies in Canada & 7 in Ireland). They were destitute. Their never give-up attitude brought them to the attention of a Nigerian Prince and the CBC. Fortunately they had the good sense to call the CBC first. The CBC were looking for new blood, new ideas, new energy and found two guys that didn't cost much and were willing to defer royalties over 3 generations.

Laughing Out Loud

I have to stop listening to this in public as I keep laughing out loud and people keep staring at me. I thought the Twitter one was good but the football one is even better.
