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.

Hilarious
22 December 2007 | by trevorcroftSee all my reviews

I watched my first Jon Dore episode tonight, it was episode #6, Fit, and it was hilarious. My girlfriend and I were laughing out loud for the majority of the show.

He interviews a variety of different people in his quest to become physically fit and I wasn't sure if the interviews were scripted or not, but either way it was comedic gold.

If the interviews were unscripted Jon Dore is quick witted with perfect delivery. If the interviews were scripted he plays the part flawlessly. There are parts of the show that are definitely scripted, and I found those well written and the acting was good enough to make me laugh.

For a Canadian produced television show it came across quite polished, I will definitely be looking to watch the other episodes.
