Don took to the Red Chair on Monday, December 12, 2011 to talk with George Stroumboulopoulos ... and it became one of George's highest-rated interviews of 2011! Watch the full interview here:
In January 2012, Don proved that comedy is easy as pie in a return appearance on GEORGE STROUMBOULOPOULOS TONIGHT. In a special cameo for the segment Something You Might Not Know About Canada, Don introduces a fascinating -- and delicious -- slice of Canadian comedy history.
