Hot Entertainment: An Evening with Jian Ghomeshi

Jian Ghomeshi

In the ’90s, Jian Ghomeshi gained national recognition with his politically satirical folk-pop band Moxy Früvous, singing songs such as “King of Spain” and “My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors.” Now he’s an author himself, having penned the memoir 1982. The book recounts life-changing musical moments, touching on love, conformity and what it means to be cool. Despite an awkward adolescence, Ghomeshi epitomizes cool to most Canadians. As the popular host of Q, CBC Radio One’s arts and cultural program, he’s talked to everyone from Francis Ford Coppola to Jane Goodall. His most famous interview—which gained worldwide attention—was with a truculent, erratic Billy Bob Thornton. Now Ghomeshi is the one in the hot seat as Stephen Quinn speaks to him in an evening event at the Frederic Wood Theatre (Nov. 19).—Sheri Radford
