When Calgarian Robert Cohen moved to L.A. to pursue his dreams of becoming a comedy writer, he quickly realized that Being Canadian meant his new friends and colleagues knew nothing but the usual stereotypes about his beloved homeland. After years of frustration, Robert decided to embark on a genuine and hilarious personal quest, traveling from one end of Canada to the other, to prove his country is more than just maple syrup and Mounties. Imagine Sherman’s March, but wearing a toque.
