This is That Live

For the first time ever Pat Kelly and Peter Oldring will offer the audience an intimate look behind the studio door of CBC’s hit satirical radio show THIS IS THAT. With a healthy mix of character interviews and mockumentary stories, this send up of public radio allows fans to witness the frenzied production process of the actual radio show. Nothing is off limits–politics, business, culture, justice, science, religion–if it’s relevant to Canadians, THIS IS THAT finds a way to fabricate a story. Keen followers of the show will also be happy to know that Pete and Pat will be unveiling some of the best listener phone calls that were too wild for morning radio.

If you have ever been curious how just two guys provide all the voices for this radio comedy…. Well, this is the show for you.

    You should think about doing a sketch on eligetability for drivers licences and limiting the speed you can drive to certain charestics of the driver like how fast you can run, how short your legs are, the music you like, near or far sighted, your politics, your age etc.

    love your show, all of it

    How about a story regarding a new law requiring nearly silent electric vehicles to be equipped with sounds, for safety reasons. Dodge Ram could sound like a sheep, etc… The Impala is a challenge because it doesn’t make noise…

    Wonderful show. I sometimes laugh out loud.
