Kevin Hart’s Stand-Up Set Voted Canada’s Favourite in SnackableTV’s First Original Series, JOKEOFF
— July 30, 2018
Kevin Hart is King in the North! With recent tour stops across Canada (including Montréal as part of the recent 2018 Just For Laughs Festival), and content from his Laugh Out Loud comedy network killing it on SnackableTV, Hart has emerged victorious, with his stand-up set being voted Canada’s favourite in SnackableTV’s first-ever original and interactive series, JOKEOFF.
Produced in association with Just For Laughs, JOKEOFF utilized in-app voting to allow users to choose their favourite stand-up set. The bracket-style battle kicked off on July 5 with comics facing off with some of their best sets curated from the Just For Laughs comedy archives.
Featuring comedians like Dave Chappelle, Jeff Foxworthy, Joan Rivers, Don Rickles, and more, SnackableTV users had one week to choose their favourite comic set from each pairing, with the chosen comic advancing to the next round.
Hart first went up against Rivers and Canadians voted him through to Round Wwo, where his set won 52% of the vote against Hannibal Burress. It was a tight competition in the final round against Zack Galifianakis, but Hart’s stand-up set ultimately took 53% of the votes to become Canada’s favourite.
Users took the call to choose the ultimate stand-up set seriously; thanks to regular updates on which comedians were in the lead, time spent in-app for the month of the bracket (July 4-July 30) increased 19% compared to the year-to-date average.
While JOKEOFF may be over, the laughs still continue on SnackableTV, which is the exclusive Canadian home for the ground-breaking Laugh Out Loud comedy network. A partnership between superstar comedian Kevin Hart and Lionsgate, the channel features a slate of original, scripted, and unscripted comedy series, plus stand-up specials, licensed programming, and live broadcasts.
