Canada turns 150 on July 1. Before you express indifference, remember that our nonconfrontational northern neighbors have given us such comedic legends as Lorne Michaels, SCTV, The Kids in the Hall, Trailer Park Boys and half of Cheech and Chong. Yes, blame them. To celebrate, the Comedy Store's annual Canada Day show, the largest such event in town, hosts a special Canada's 150th Birthday Comedy Bash, featuring host Angelo Tsarouchas and fellow Canadian-born comics Russell Peters, Ara Basil, Kristeen Von Hagen, Darrin Rose, Lisa Gay Tremblay, Dylan Mendelson, Renee Percy, Eric Johnson, Tracy McDonald, Christina Walkinshaw and Jeremy Hotz, who once joked that Americans are the "most un-Canadian people you've ever met."
