The longest-running comedy in Canadian history and one of the country’s top-rated comedy shows, 22 Minutes has been recognized with numerous awards over the years, including the Canadian Screen Awards Academy Icon Award. 22 Minutes has also won several Canadian Comedy Awards, including Best TV Show. A multiplatform hit, the show has a dynamic digital presence that allows fans to watch entire episodes online, view highlights and full sketches on Facebook, read jokes and up-to-the minute commentary on Twitter, and engage with photos and videos on Instagram. The show’s social media outlets are updated continuously and – by reaching millions of fans, new and old – generate considerable buzz.
