Storyline

Award-winning comic Jon Dore puts himself in the line of fire in this outrageous series. See Jon get beaten up by children, have body hair removed in an extremely painful way, and learn the true meaning of sexually transmitted disease. It's a heartwarming adventure for the whole family -- assuming your family is somewhat insane and finds repulsive nudity heartwarming. In The Jon Dore Television Show, Dore's flat-out crazy take on life is told through an array of real-life interviews, off-the-wall tangents, and wild antics. In each episode, he fearlessly sets out to correct his faults and make all his "wrongs" right again.

Very Original
2 January 2008 | by zerobeatSee all my reviews

Dore has excellent deadpan delivery and has created a wonderfully self-aware show. It's a kind of faux documentary that centres around a fictionalized (but how much?) version of Dore. Each show takes on a topic that Dore fixates on (quitting smoking, getting in shape, attracting a woman, accessibility for disabled people, infertility, getting over a fear of bats etc)

The overall format of this show is unlike anything I've ever seen. The interview portions might remind me a little of D'Ali G show, but in Dore's case, it's almost irrelevant if the interviewee knows it's for a comedy show (and certainly, it's clear that some really do know).

At first I wondered why I found this show so "familiar" in tone. Then after a few episodes I looked him up online and discovered that he's from Ottawa, Canada and then moved to Toronto, Canada (same with me). So I'm thinking that a foreigner might see this show in a much stranger light that I'm seeing! Cool.
