HUMOR / Form / Parodies
From the creators of CBC radio's This is That; Pat Kelly, Chris Kelly and Peter Oldring. From CBC Radio's most beloved satirical comedy team comes This is That: Travel Guide to Canada, a hilariously outrageous parody of the travel guide genre and what it means to visit Canada. Searching for a weekend away with the kids? This is That: Travel Guide to Canada will teach you how to navigate the twelve petting zoos of Etobicoke and how to avoid pickpockets in Kamloops. Planning your summer holiday? Keep in mind that the city of Brandon, Manitoba, is closed for annual maintenance between July 12 and August 19 and that tipping your server in Swift Current is offensive. Presented in the familiar casing of a traditional travel guidebook, à la Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, This is That: Travel Guide to Canada takes readers on a farcical - and unbelievable - journey from coast to coast to coast to coast to coast. This faux guide also includes essential travel tips, such as useful Canadian phrases to locate the bathroom, best places to portage, and most spectacular malls above sea level.

This is That has engaged audiences across the country and beyond with an acclaimed radio show and podcast, viral digital content, and sold-out live show tours. The award-winning satirical radio program on CBC Radio One is created by veteran comedians Chris Kelly, Pat Kelly, and Peter Oldring, who use the familiar sound of public radio as a platform for character bits and improvisational comedy. Going into its seventh season, This is That is heard by over 1 million Canadians each week, and draws over 1.5 million website views per season. The radio show has won 3 Canadian Comedy Awards for Best Radio Program, New York Festivals Gold Medal for Best Comedy Special, and New York Festivals Bronze Medal for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program. This is That stories have been covered by Wall Street Journal, Boing Boing, Paste Magazine, New York Magazine, The Guardian, Devour, and more. This is That will be taking its sold-out live tour back across the country in January and February 2017.

I had no idea you could travel to Canada! This book was very enlightening, Thanks This is That." - Kevin Nealon  "If you only buy one travel book about Canada this must be it. You WILL get lost without it" - Rick Mercer  Steve Patterson:  "If you buy only 1 great funny book this season, you should buy mine. But if you're looking for another, This is THAT book."- Steve Patterson, host of "The Debaters" author of "The Book of Letters I Didn't Know Where To Send"
