Lytton's the star of Aug. 18 "Still Standing" TV show

Quirky comic Jonny Harris will focus on Lytton’s quirks and charms when the Lytton episode of “Still Standing” premieres on Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Harris, also known for his role as Cst. George Crabtree in the hit CBC series “Murdoch Mysteries,” caused quite a stir in the Fraser Canyon community last year when he and his crew arrived to film an episode of the new series.

In the series, Harris explores “small towns on the ropes, performs stand-up shows for the locals who’ve stuck it out, and proves that Canadians know how to laugh at themselves,” according to the CBC.

In each community, Harris found enough comic material to perform an original stand-up comedy routine for the locals.

Harris traveled across Canada, visiting towns such as Souris PEI, Wawa Ont., Willow Bunch Sask., Coleman AB, Lytton and Bamfield B.C. In each community, Harris immersed himself in people’s everyday lives, coming to understand why people are fiercely proud to call those communities home. 

Harris is originally from Pouch Cove, Newfoundland & Labrador (population 1,866) so he knows a thing or two about small-town Canada.
