Summary and storyline

Still Standing is a new Canadian comedy and reality TV series that follows comedian Jonny Harris as he travels across the country entertaining people who’ve maintained a healthy sense of humor in the face of great economic adversity. Produced by Frantic Films, and exec produced by Jamie Brown, Catherine Legge and Jeff Peeler, season 1 premiered on on June 23, 2015 on CBC in Canada. Still Standing season 2 debuted on June 14, 2016.

Still Standing is a comedy show about comedy — a portrayal of one comedian’s adventures in small Canadian towns and the celebration of their residents. Traveling from coast to coast, Jonny Harris immerses himself in local culture to absorb enough material to conjure up a brand new stand-up comedy routine every time. In the first season, Jonny visits Manitou, MB where he befriends a yodeling cowboy, mouths a 10,000 pound Harley Davidson in Lytton, BC, and is a guest in Rowley, AB, a town of eight people (six when winter rolls around), among other places.

Current season and renewal expectations

The current second season features Harris visiting the towns of Skiegate, BC, Vanastra, ON, Georgetown, PEI and Telkwa. Reviews and ratings have been very positive since the show premiered last summer, so it was not a surprise that the network decided to greenlight a second season. Still Standing has a 7.9/10 IMDb score and Jonny`s thoughtful insight is much appreciated by the audience. Steering away from familiar routes, Jonny Harris explores places you would never otherwise see on television in a funny and heartwarming manner, and we sincerely hope that this positive and upbeat show will be renewed further. However, there have been no announcements so far, so please stay tuned for relevant news.
