Ricky Gervais

I feel like Canadians embrace the outdoors and - from Australia - we do the same thing, so I feel at home in Canada.

Yvonne Strahovski

The people who are putting this festival on love television, and I love television! And it's coming from a global perspective as well, and I think that's great.

Chuck Lorre
Sir Peter Ustinov Comedy Award 2012

It's an incredible energy up here. I have never seen a more beautiful place. You really don't want to be indoors at all, but the energy inside is just as exciting.
