Comedy in the Hammer: Week 3 – Eric Johnston

 

Hello! If you’re here for the first time, this is Comedy in the Hammer. Each week we let you know what shows are coming up and sit down with a different comedian or show runner.

 

This week I’m joined by actor/comedian Eric Johnston. Eric does shows all over Ontario and runs the monthly Comedy in the Creek (in Stoney Creek, Ontario).
