TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sirius XM Canada Holdings Inc. (TSX: XSR), (SiriusXM Canada) the country's leading audio
entertainment company, announced today that Canadian comedy writer,
director, producer and star Kenny Hotz, will host Hotzcast, an exclusive new show on SiriusXM's Laugh Attack (XM channel 160) live
on Tuesday's at 5:00 pm ET starting this month.
Hotz, the co-creator and star of Kenny vs. Spenny, will hold court every week on Hotzcast, taking aim at whatever catches his ire — political strife or pop culture
gossip, nothing is off limits in Hotz's live, uncensored program. Hotz
will be joined on-air by long-time collaborator Jeff Kassel.
"As the only 24/7 all-Canadian comedy channel on-air, Laugh Attack is
the perfect home for Kenny Hotz," said Joe Thistel, Director, Sports &
Talk Programming, SiriusXM Canada. "We are very excited to have Kenny
be a part of Laugh Attack. His particular brand of in-your-face comedy
is what helps make the channel a lightning rod for cutting-edge
Canadian comedy and we look forward to bringing it to our listeners".
"I've always wanted to do radio and my fans have been requesting I do a
show for years," said Hotz. "I'm going to have the biggest radio show
in Canada, even if I have to speak French to do it."
A former writer for South Park, Hotz is the only Canadian entertainer to have two television series
premiere on different American networks simultaneously. His concept for
Kenny vs. Spenny became the largest purchase by the CBC for the first season of a comedy
program. Kenny vs. Spenny went on to run for six seasons, garnering eight Gemini nominations and
a Rose D'or for Best International Series. His most recent work
includes the FX Network's Testees with co-star Jeff Kassel, and the acclaimed series Kenny Hotz's Triumph of The Will.
Replays of Hotzcast will air throughout the week on XM's uncensored
Canadian comedy channel, Laugh Attack. Found on Channel 160, Laugh
Attack hosts the hottest Canadian comics, completely uncensored.
Listeners can also catch replays of Hotzcast on Kenny's YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/kennyhotz.
