Candy’s National Award nominated Television series will be showing many NEW episodes from this past spring’s filming of hot Canadian Musicians, Performances of Magic, Trapeze, Hoop Dancing, Mi’Kmaq drummers and dancers, and much more exciting performances; and of course, the incomparable and hilarious Canadian stand up comedian, Candy Palmater, always starts off each episode with a monologue of such comedic brilliance.
The Candy Show is filmed in front of a live studio audience of 150 , every night,in Halifax Nova Scotia. We film 13 high octane, exciting Episodes over 2 weeks. Candy is the ONLY writer for every single episode,as well as being the Creative Executive Producer, so every single guest you see they are hand picked by Candy. Every comedy monologue Candy delivers is written 100% by her alone. This is a very important fact, as all other National Television series have a team of writers, but The Candy Show is truly Candy’s baby, and her own creation. Candy does collaborate with her Multiple Award winning and Award Nominated for The Candy Show Director, Trevor Grant, out of Prince Edward Island. Together, Candy and Trevor make beautiful magic for all of you to witness, on your HD channel. Candy’s Executive Producing partner, Johanna Eliot, of Ocean Entertainment and her fantastic team, and the BEST TV crew in the business, bring The Candy Show to life. This is a work of Love, Passion and fun – there is no other National Variety Television series like this running right now.

Yesterday I blogged about Candy Palmater in her role as an International speaker. Today is about Candy in the capacity that many of you know her best. The role of Entertainment. Candy Palmater has been making us laugh, making us cry, making us exhausted as we saunter home from a show we lay witness to, and feel like we had been made love to by Candy’s wit, charm and unique style of comedy. She is more of a comedic story teller. Candy does deliver impromptu one liners when we least expect them, and she certainly lays everything on the stage for her audience. Candy’s innate ability is evident. Her humble and charming personality is no match for her on stage candour and honesty about topics that range from “what we are not to speak about in public” to politics. Breaking the barriers and pushing the comfortable envelope are her specialties.
Stand Up comedy styles
Unlike many other comedians, Candy has Two types of Comedy routines: 1. Corporate comedy, above the belt style for corporate functions, companies, Television Galas, Awards Show and many functions that like to keep things light , and number 2. Candy’s standard comedy – she pushes the envelope on topics that make people squirm in their seats. And let’s face it, most of us love to feel uncomfortable, breaking away form norm and social rights, this is why we love Stand up comedians, right? Candy utilizes her life experiences, her intelligence and her brashness to create the material we see on stage. No one gets hurt, and no one gets picked on in her shows. It is all in good fun, extremely entertaining and everyone loves to laugh until they have to pee. Candy is your huckleberry. 19 +.
Candy has been performing all over the country. She performs on her hit national TV series, The Candy Show, that airs every Wednesday nights on APTN/ APTN HD channels. (Check your service provider for exact times in your zone). OR watch the first 3 seasons on line here.
