Second City has done it again at the Canadian Comedy Awards.

Last night the Canadian Comedy Awards, one of the most coveted comedy awards in Canada, were handed out in our nations capital.

I had the opportunity to sign up online and vote on a few categories, I was limited however as I am not a part of the industry nor did I pay a fee for a membership.  I am happy to say that I voted for Space Janitors and they did come away with Internet / Best Web Series.  Certain my vote was appreciated, all it takes is one… 

The best breakout artist this year was none other than my favourite lady comedian Stacey McGunnigle. I am so happy and excited for her.  Looking forward to checking her out soon on her current run of We can be Heroes at Second City.

Speaking of Second City, Stacey isn’t the only current cast member that won last night. Jan Caruana won for Best Female Improvisor and Second City Alum Jason DeRosse won Best Male Improvisor.  Award well deserved for both parties. Live Long and Pro$per (Ashley Comeau, Jason DeRosse, Nigel Downer, Alastair Forbes, Inessa Frantowski and Carly Heffernan) did not clinch the award for Best Sketch Troupe this year, but maybe Meme-ing of Life will have the opportunity in 2014?!

Now Jason DeRosse didn’t just win once, he was able to come away with another award, Best Improv Troupe with MANTOWN.  These gentlemen Bob Banks, Adam Cawley, Jason Derosse  and Rob Norman create pure improv magic together and I am certain they are extremely proud of this award!

From all the tweets and all the photos put up from last night looks like everyone enjoyed themselves.  Here’s to another great year of comedy! 

Submissions for next year will open in January 2014.
