National treasure Jann Arden is an award-winning musician, a best-selling author, a TV personality, and now the star of her own sitcom Jann (watch the premiere online now at CTV.ca). She’s also doing her part to keep up the stereotype that Canadians are hilarious.

The Calgary native continues to be one of our favourite celebs to follow on social media, with Arden as one of the few people who is as funny on the keyboard as she is on camera. Some people get whacked extra hard with the talent stick at birth and Jann is one of them.

Whether she’s fighting with Anti-Vaxxers (how are we still having this conversation?) or hanging out on screen with her bestie Rick Mercer, Jann Arden can make us laugh until we cry. And she owes us that. We’ve spent years sad-crying from “Good Mother.” Jesus H Murphy, that beautiful song makes us sob every time. Here are 15 times that Jann made us happy-cry.

WHEN SHE MADE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS HER BIRCH

If Jann is late until April, you know why.

WHEN SHE GAVE FASHION ADVICE

We don’t like to play favourites, but Jann Arden’s episode of The Launch was one of the best this season. Not only did she have thoughtful, encouraging and constructive advice, she was able to make launched artist Olivia Lunny laugh only moments before the biggest performance of her life. TBH, we would wear a tube top if Jann Arden co-signed it.

WHEN SHE PROVIDED A VISUAL ON WHY WE SHOULD VACCINATE

In conclusion, listen to Jann. And science.

WHEN SHE GIVE TWITTER SOME FEEDBACK

Praise be the word of Jann.

WHEN SHE CONFIRMED THAT PIE IS LIFE

Every day should be a day where we honour desserts.

WHEN SHE WAS ALL OF US ON FEBRUARY 13

Here for the chocolate.

WHEN SHE WAS JANE HARDEN

Maybe it’s not too late to release a French version of “Insensitive.”

WHEN SHE TALKS ABOUT MIDI

True love is caring for your dog, even when it breaks wind.

WHEN SHE JOKED ABOUT HARD PARTYING WITH SOBRIETY

Those bubbles are no joke.

WHEN SHE GOT REAL ABOUT BOTOX AND MENOPAUSE

Menopause does kinda suck sh*t, doesn’t it?

WHEN SHE HANGS OUT WITH RICK MERCER

Over the years, Jann made multiple appearances on The Rick Mercer Report, with Arden and Mercer’s friendship one of our favourite couplings in Canadian history. Whether they were rock climbing indoors or hanging off the side of the CN Tower (we still have second hand trauma from watching that episode), the hilarious pair made every adventure fun and made viewers feel like we were part of the group. Thankfully, not the part that had to go zip lining in Calgary.

WHEN SHE DISCUSSED ONLINE DATING

During one of her many times guest hosting The Social, Jann shared her thoughts on online dating. Loves it for other people, hates it for herself. “What happened to just getting drunk in a bar, having sex for a steak sandwich and some fries and a half litre of the house white and maybe you run into them again, maybe you don’t. I feel like there’s something lost with not seeing the person right up front.” Also, now we want fries.

WHEN SHE GAVE ADVICE ON HOSTING THE JUNO AWARDS

Breathe, drink something clear (gin is recommended), and turn the lights off when you’re done.

WHEN SHE GAVE ADVICE ON LOSING A JUNO

#Humblebrag.

WHEN SHE ADDRESSED WATCHING HER NEW SHOW JANN

We don’t’ have to worry about Jann The Actor going totally method and being one of those stars who doesn’t watch her own work. “I’m going to be in there with ice cream and popcorn. I don’t drink anymore so I’m probably going to have a massive soda of some kind. I’m gonna watch it.”

 

Watch the broadcast premiere of Jann on Wednesday, March 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CTV or stream it online now on CTV’s YouTube channelBravo.ca and other CTV streaming platforms.
