TELETOON at Night Welcomes Back The Fannies

Who needs prestige and industry respect when you can have robots and excellent hair? TELETOON at Night’s The Fannies is the ultimate awards season underdog, a show in which host Fred Kennedy hands out trophies for things that are really important to humanity – like man bums and swords. The third annual Fannies, taped in front of a live audience for the first time in the show’s history, will air Friday, February 22  during TELETOON at Night’s Fred at Night programming block.

“What The Fannies lacks in glitz and glamour we make up for in mozza sticks and obscure references to Greek mythology. No really, we actually make references to Greek mythology. That’s the type of high-brow humour our viewers expect and once again we promise to deliver,” said Fred Kennedy, Host, The Fannies on TELETOON at Night.
