Just For Laughs, CBC (Canada)
CBC; Comedy Network; CW Seed; official website; TVarchive.ca; Wikipedia

As you probably know (because I've mentioned it a bunch of places on this site), I grew up in a small town in northern Maine, where we got three and a half channels when I was a kid, one and a half of which were Canadian. Anyway, every year there's a comedy festival in Montreal called "Just for Laughs," and so every year, CBC would air a show with highlights from the festival. This would last maybe a week or a month, I don't even remember. I just know that I always enjoyed tuning in whenever it was on, to watch stand-up comedy from various comedians. And I liked the weird animated mascot creature that at the end of every episode would cry, "Mommy... it's over!" Over the years, I guess there were some spin-off shows that I never watched and had no interest in. And it's been awhile since I've actually been able to see the regular show. But I really should try to do so again, one of these years.
