If I were to ask you to name Toronto, Canada’s greatest living celebrity, who would you say?
Drake? Keanu Reeves? Ryan Gosling? Jim Carrey?
Toronto, Canada’s greatest living celebrity is none other than talk show host, podcaster, pundit, perennial political candidate, and noted philanthropist Ed the Sock!
Ed is a Canadian treasure. He has been an inspiration to millions – especially the creator of Triumph the Insult Dog who ripped off Ed’s bit (or, coincidentally, came up with his own cigar-munching acerbic hand-rider well after Ed’s debut). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Triumph creator, Robert Smigel, has been laying it on thick for over 20 years now.
Ed the Sock, meanwhile, has continued to do his own thing (for slighter longer) and just kicked off an Indeigogo campaign in support of his new online channel, FUN – The FU_Network.
Ed is also a big fan of Dark Matter and was kind enough to have Melissa O’Neil, Anthony Lemke, and I on his podcast last year – (click to listen) –
Which is why I thought it would be nice to give him a boost just like he gave us a boost in our time of need. So, if you’d like to support Ed on his road to media dominance, head on over to his Indiegogo page = Ed the Sock’s Indiegogo Page
Back his bid and be rewarded with not only the satisfaction of a deed well done, but everything from gratitude to party invitations to your very own hand-crafted Ed the Sock clone. And more! I, personally, have my eye on those limited edition Ed the Sock socks!
