Bracebridge’s comedic kingpin Tyler Morrison is getting some national exposure later this month.
Morrison is one of the comics taking part in this season of the CTV Comedy Channel’s Roast Battle Canada.
This is the third season of the series, which features pairs of Canadian comics facing off in each episode by hurling ruthless jokes at each other in hopes of being crowned the winner by a distinguished panel of judges including Russell Peters, Sabrina Jalees and Letterkenny’s K. Trevor Wilson.
Morrison’s opponent in comedic combat will be Brockvile’s Andrew Johnston. You can catch Morrison’s episode when it airs June 27.

He has since appeared on CBC’s hit show The Debaters, Sirius XM’s JFL Canada & Raw Dog channels, Robert Kelly’s You Know What Dude, and The Ron Jeremy Celebrity Roast where he received a standing ovation for his performance (on top of being the head writer).
