Still Standing is a Canadian television series, which premiered on CBC in summer 2015.[1] The show's tagline slogan is "towns that are against the ropes but still hanging in there",[2] reflecting the show's premise to tell the "story of small towns in Canada and how they overcome struggles".[3]

A hybrid comedy/reality series, the program features actor and comedian Jonny Harris. In each episode, Harris travels to small Canadian communities which are financially struggling but "still standing" and spends time getting to know the residents and their lifestyles. At the end of the trip, Harris performs a stand-up comedy show for the town's residents, into which he integrates some of his newfound insights about life in their community.[1] In the television format, however, clips from the comedy show are interspersed throughout the episode rather than occurring specifically at the end. The show is produced by Frantic Films.[4]

The show premiered on June 23, 2015, with an episode set in Bamfield, British Columbia.[1]

Filming

To be considered for a show, a community must submit a proposal to the show's producers, who then select a subset of those proposals for inclusion in that season's programming.[5] The order of filming is independent of the order of episode broadcasting.[a] Filming occurs during the three hiatuses in the filming of Murdoch Mysteries, in which Harris is part of the main cast.[6]

A producer visits the town before the filming crew arrives to become familiar with the community.[6] The crew then spends five days in the community, the first four of which are spent filming scenery and conducting interviews.[7] Most of the segments are planned in advance, including Harris interviewing local individuals.[8] The filming schedule is flexible to allow the crew to film events "on the fly".[8] The crew consists of 10 to 16 members who are billeted during the filming.[9][7]

Comedy show

The visit culminates in a comedy performance by Harris at a local venue on the fifth day.[10][7] The event is free to attend on a first come, first served basis, and features performances by other stand-up comics.[10][9] In the show, Harris discusses the residents, and the community's difficulties and response to those difficulties.[1] Harris said he was "worried that they (local residents) might be apprehensive" about the show and its subject, but found that instead "they were laid back".[1] He stated that "people are not overly sensitive, and are just up for the laugh".[1]

The stand-up routine typically includes inside jokes that may not be included in the episode that is broadcast.[9]

Reception

Television critic John Doyle, writing in The Globe and Mail, stated that Harris is "extremely good at connecting with the local people".[2]
