Lenny in a black t-shirt on the left side of the frame with his head tilted to the right, his hand on his bearded chin. Gavin in a grey t-shirt, on the right side of the frame, is whispering to Lenny with his hand in front of his mouth.
We wrote and performed this song live in the spring of 2019 (opening for Kevin Nealon at the Regent Theatre in Picton, Ontario). It was inspired by a proposal by Doug Ford’s Conservatives to stop funding sedation for colonoscopies. We decided to record a version and make this video.
Thankfully, Doug Ford’s Conservative Government back-tracked on the recommendation to delist sedation for colonoscopies! So, going sedation free is still your choice.
Enjoy the song anyways because hey, there are many benefits to no anesthetic…

Short Attention Spa is the comedy duo of Lenny Epstein and Gavin North. We live in Prince Edward County where we practice the art of making people laugh. Mostly we do that through comedy. Sometimes our comedy gets political, sometimes poo joke-y. In the case of this video, both. We have been performing and writing together since 2013 (as members of The County’s Artisanal Comedy Troupe: Taste That!). Short Attention Spa (aka Shartspa) was formed in 2018 to celebrate our shared love of shawarma, comedy, and going on trips.
