Storyline

Award-winning comic Jon Dore puts himself in the line of fire in this outrageous series. See Jon get beaten up by children, have body hair removed in an extremely painful way, and learn the true meaning of sexually transmitted disease. It's a heartwarming adventure for the whole family -- assuming your family is somewhat insane and finds repulsive nudity heartwarming. In The Jon Dore Television Show, Dore's flat-out crazy take on life is told through an array of real-life interviews, off-the-wall tangents, and wild antics. In each episode, he fearlessly sets out to correct his faults and make all his "wrongs" right again.

Fantastic Television...
22 March 2008 | by pea_tear_griffin2See all my reviews

Finally the comedy network has something to be proud of. I often saw this show advertised but never watched it until about a month ago. Now every time it is on I can't help but watch it.

The show is extremely funny and very well done. Jon Dore does a great job of playing himself, or should I say an alternative universe himself. The show always follows Jon and how he over comes his problems. He also interviews people on the subject the episode is about.

As of now I've seen about 6 or so episodes of the show, and each one has been just as funny as the last. Keep up the great work Jon and crew.

Ps. What makes this even better is that the show is made in Canada.
