British-based Canadian comedian John Hastings talks about the comedy culture in his native Canada, and why it’s produced so many world-class funny men and women. As well as being one of the hardest working acts on the circuit, John has spent the last few years experimenting with different ways of reaching his fans through the internet. In this interview, he shares his experiences of moving to the UK and learning to deal with the social and cultural barriers that face a foreign comedian on the British scene. He also plugs his latest comedy album, “We Farted”, which he recorded with friend and fellow comedian Dylan Gott – who John assures us has beef-tits – and is released in early May 2014 via iTunes.
