New ichannel series tackles serious issues with comedy

TORONTO – Stornoway Communications-owned ichannel debuted a new online current affairs series Tuesday that uses comedy and documentary content to take on big issues. Inside Joke, a 13-part web and television series from the team behind ichannel’s No Kidding, uses comedy as the jumping-off point for compelling, in-depth examination of timely social issues.  Each half-hour webisode combines stand-up comedy routines, documentary content and roundtable conversation with Canadian comedians to address issues ranging from terrorism to pornography. Inside Joke will be broadcast nationally on ichannel starting in June 2014.  Click here to watch it now. www.ichannel.ca
