A little while ago, I invited Brent Butt (creator & star of Corner Gas & Hiccups) to do a video interview with me.
In a moment of weakness and the persistence of fans, Brent obliged.
It took a bit of scheduling and some more persistence on Twitter, but Brent was very gracious to make the interview happen.
My wife and I took in his show on the 14th of April at the Comedy Mix. Very funny (the guests too). We got to spend a few minutes to talk with Brent that night and set-up the time for the interview.
I must say I was nervous having a chance to sit down in character with an icon in the Canadian Entertainment industry. It was also intimidating knowing that Brent sat down with George Stroumboulopoulos early this same week. However, the show went on.
We sat down and chatted for 30 minutes and I really enjoyed my time. A very special thanks to my good friend Geoff Heith for filming and to the Comedy Mix for letting us use their green room. And of course, a very special thank you to Brent for going through with this whole crazy thing. Enjoy the rye and I hope we can connect again soon.
Hope you enjoy the interview.
