Oh, it was the 90's all right. Bette MacDonald, Tim Steeves and Ed Macdonald in CBC's The Bette Show. No one expected to find any of it on YouTube. The airing of the first six episodes coincided with a strike at the network.
About 4 minutes and 55 seconds into this clip from The Jon Dore Television Show, Ed makes his moving appearance as Jon's reincarnated hamster, Brenda. Try not to cry too much.
Ed as Hampton, the "Bible Pimp", in Trailer Park Boys (Season 2, Ep. 5.) with Tania Rudolf as his "daughter".
