Third Frames: John Wing

Toronto doesn’t get to see much of expat John Wing these days. Sure, he’ll fly up from Los Angeles to record something for CBC, or take meetings, or attend the Canadian Comedy Awards. But to keep him here long enough to headline for a week? It’s been a few years. Yuk Yuk’s managed to pin him down through this weekend, a rarity well worth dodging MMVA street closures for.

Next up: preparing for his gala appearance at Just For Laughs in Montreal next month.
