Ex-Idol Comic Dore Joins Forces with Comedy Network for tour
Former Canadian Idol funny man Jon Dore is appearing at Casino Nova Scotia on Friday to celebrate the Comedy Network’s 10th anniversary— and he promises his skills have come a long way since he started out in comedy.“You’re always a comedian with your friends,” said Dore, who first stood in front of a microphone when he was 21.
After his departure from Canadian Idol in 2005, Dore became affiliated with the Comedy Network. He pitched The Jon Dore Television Show to the network and shot a pilot. The premise is simple: Dore portrays an over-the-top version of himself, in which he delivers his crazy take on life through interviews, off-the-wall-rants and zany antics.
