Just as any good conversation goes in different directions, I wanted to add another element to my regular podcast. Today I wanted to share my memories of the great John Candy. Passed away 25 years ago today but still a big part of Canadian comedy history. From Johnny La Rue to Harry the guy with the snake on his face to Dr Tongue....he had some amazing characters. Born and raised right here in East York, where I also live, and I refer to him often when showing properties near where he grew up. I also had the chance to meet the great Juul Haalmeyer a few years back and try on the famous J LaRue smoking jacket. A great treat indeed.
