Son of a Critch, a CBC Original Comedy, created by Mark Critch (This Hour has 22 Minutes) and Tim McAuliffe (writer/producer of NBC’s TheOffice, FOX’s Last Man on Earth and NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), is coming back for Season 2. The popular series stars Critch, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (Disney’s Pinocchio) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange). It premieres on Tuesday, January 3rd at 8:30 pm (9 pm NT) on CBC and the free CBC Gem streaming service.

Based on the award-winning, best-selling memoir from Mark Critch, this is the hilarious and very real story of 13-year-old Mark coming of age in St. John’s, Newfoundland. It’s a heartfelt window into the life of a child who uses comedy and self-deprecation to win friends and find his place in the world.
