Rocket Ace wins Canadian Comedy Award!
October 2, 2009
On behalf of the entire RAMP team, we’d like to sincerely thank the The Canadian Comedy Awards and everyone who voted for The Violator which was awarded funniest web clip of 2009 tonight! This really means a lot to us - especially as it’s one of only three Canadian Comedy Award categories which are voted on publicly. On a medium as democratic (and fickle) as the Internet - we’re very humbled that you think that one of our little videos are worthy of recognition.
We think Violator is a great representative of all the really fun work we’ve done with The Imponderables - they’re great collaborators, and even better friends - and it’s totally creepy to see both our names carved into a big shiny trophy creating a sentence so bizarre that it will one day puzzle alien linguists to no end: “VIOLATOR ROCKET ACE MOVING PICTURES AND THE IMPONDERABLES”.
If you can’t tell, we’re having a great time at the Canadian Comedy Festival in Saint John (and not just because they gave us a chunk of glass you could easily kill a man with) - everyone has been incredibly welcoming (even the folks in the Tim Horton’s who were disappointed the award didn’t look as good as it did on stage).
Sorry for the self-serving post - but let’s be frank; It’s not too often people working in short-form Internet comedy get any kind of public recognition (other than YouTube commentors questioning their sexuality) so we’re going to enjoy the rest of the weekend, and hopefully use it as a kick in the pants to get some new RAMP material your way as thanks.
Again, our sincerest “thank you” to everyone who made this amazing night possible!
N.B. - Also, as Matt said during our acceptance speech. This really wouldn’t have been possible without LEGO - so thank you LEGO for not suing us. We’re really grateful about that!
