Abstract

Being Canadian, as a nationality, is something that has a very niche place within American Pop Culture. This project will focus on the American Film Industry, looking at the representation and personification of being Canadian as a stereotypical and comedic factor that carries no value or weight as a nationality, beyond as such. This will be done by comparing the careers of 6 Canadian citizens in total, 3 Comedians and 3 noncomedic actors.
