Yuk Yuk’s Competition Makes Mark Little Richer, Handsomer

The Chronicle Herald randomly chose a photo of a Picnicface member to run with their article on Mark.

In case you haven’t heard, Mark Little of Picnicface is $25,000 richer by winning Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh Off in Toronto last week.

I missed the big win, but managed to see Mark qualify to the finals. While he stood out as being one of the few qualifying comics to lean towards the absurd, it really looked like the judges (including Ben Mulroney) prefered the more straight-forward stand ups. At the semi-finals Mark squeaked by to the finals by coming in 4th place behind some typical Canuck comics including a guy whose big closer was a rant about the 10-year-old film Armagedon.

Luckily the judges for the finals included talent scouts for Conan O’Brien and Craig Ferguson.  The competition will air on the Comedy Network sometime in the future.

But the real highlight of Mark’s weekend was meeting the guy who played the dad in Troll 2.
