Jared Keeso Speaks at Sears Festival

Jared speaks to students at the Sears Drama Festival.

Jared Keeso returned to his former high school to share stories and answer questions about his acting career. Jared talked to eager drama students about his award-winning comedy, Letterkenny, as well as the French-Canadian police drama, 19-2, and The Don Cherry Story. He generously answered questions about tattoos (he has 2 of his dog, Gus), favourite food (all-dressed chips) as well as the process of creating the Letterkenny web series and pitching to Bell Media’s Crave T.V.  Letterkenny recently won the award for the Best Comedy Series at the Canadian Screen Awards. Jared was quick to reminisce about memories and his connection to family, teachers and the community of Listowel and encouraged students to ‘stick with the arts’.  When asked about the best line from Letterkenny: “Pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er.”
