Vancouver Mayor Larry Campbell Roast

Oct 25, 2004

By Catherine Barr


They roasted him until he was well done on Monday night as celebrities and comedians alike came out en masse at to deliver a one-two punch to Vancouver mayor Larry Campbell. "The Mayor's Roast" charity event marked the end of The Vancouver International Comedy Festival and featured, among others, live appearances by the Trailer Park Boys and hockey great Dennis Hull. In the end, our man of the hour proved he could take it, just as good as he can dish it out.
