There’s a new series of limited-edition stamps honouring Canadians – who’ve put their stamp on the comedy world.
The Canada Post “Great Canadian Comedian” series features Jim Carrey, Mike Myers and Catherine O’Hara – all comedians with roots in the Toronto area – along with Hamilton’s Martin Short and Quebec legend Olivier Guimond.
You can get a single booklet of 10 stamps for $8.50.
The whole collection of five booklets – containing a total of 50 stamps – retails for $42.50.
Canada Post’s Jim Phillips says once the series is sold-out there won’t be any reprints – and he’s not joking.
