The Best Canadian Show
27 October 2019 | by Alvin_FlangSee all my reviews

My Home Country of Canada has few shows that are of any value. Nirvanna The Band The Show aims to fix that with gut busting comedy & clever satire/parodies. Matt & Jay's comedy flows naturally and they work well off each other. This show does a good job In selling the tourism for Toronto and making it look like a wonderful place to visit. I pray that Season 3 can find a home now that Vice Canada has hit the dust. I watched both seasons on City TV back home so we can only hope they can find the rights for Season 3. This is the best Television Show that Canada has ever produced & hardly anyone knows of it. This is a masterpiece & my favourite non animated comedy. Give it a go
