I’ve thought of David Suzuki as a funny man for years but mainly due to what he has to say on the need for Canada to throw it’s economy into the ditch and sign onto a global socialist project like Kyoto.
Now it appears he will try actual comedy at a Just for Laughs event in Toronto known as JFL42.
Look, we’ve all known for years that comedians are political and with people like Louis CK showing up, the roster will be reliably left wing as it has been in the past, but seriously David Suzuki?
Several years ago now I sat in a news conference with “Suzuk,” as he calls himself, and listened as he told everyone he was done with traveling. From now on he said he would only be showing up at events outside of BC via teleconference because he couldn’t justify his massive carbon foot print.
Of course he’s never kept that promise, as much as I wish he had.
Now here’s the great comedy stylings of Suzuk!
