CBC show about the Pass being screened at Rum Runner
Clip from Still Standing: If He Talks About My Underwear Again, I’m Gonna Kick Him In The $%#@!

Pass Herald Reporter
Last year, comedian Jonny Harris visited the Pass to help film an episode of the CBC’s “Still Standing,” and the show is finally ready for broadcast.
The show follows Harris as he explores small towns across the country and performs stand-up shows for the locals in an effort to prove that Canadians know how to laugh at themselves.
In case you don’t have a television set or can’t find the CBC with the remote, the Rum Runner in Coleman will screening the show on June 30 at 7:30 p.m., admission is free.
In his time in the Pass, Harris toured the Frank Slide, the Bellevue Underground Mine, ate at Chris’ Restaurant and hobnobbed with locals including the Herald’s very own editor Bud Slapak and publisher Lisa Sygutek.

He later put on a comedy show at the Polish Hall in Coleman where he and fellow comics Chuck Byrn and Pete Zedlacher put on an excellent performance that both celebrated and poked fun at the Crowsnest Pass and its people.
“I think it’s a fun thing,” said Councillor Shar Cartwright. “It was filmed in the community and you’re going to recognize your neighbours. Also, any kind of advertising we can get is awesome and it will be viewed nationwide so that’ll be even better. Now people are going to be coming around and to what kind of characters we have down here.”
CBC crews filmed other episodes of “Still Standing” in Souris, P.E.I, Bamfield, B.C. and Manitou, Manitoba.
