My Gay Old Town

Can’t embed the video from Comedy Central, but here is a link to a brilliant Daily Show bit on Regina a few years back. (Comedy Central)

  1. I spent a late night 6 months ago on YouTube finding all sorts of cool old community spirit promos from the 50s and 60s about Regina, even old CJME commercials, but now all I can find is a trippy ad promoting (I think) a Chilliwack show in 1980, and a bunch of seriously dull as sh*t recent crap that just makes me sad.

    Chilliwack, 1980: Check out the cool dude at :25

  2. Bill Whatcot made the Daily Show? Must have been a slow news summer, or non-election year.

    I can just see a guy from Regina, on a blind date with someone from a place where they’ve never heard of Regina, using that as his big ice-breaker:

    Guy: “Yeah, I’m from Regina, it was on the Jon Stewart show once. Yeah, Jon profiled our freakshow formerly-gay anti-abortion, anti-homosexual-lifestyle activist…it was awesome.”

    Girl: “Cheque, please.”
