Jay Bigalke writes on the Linns.com website, “Five funny Canadians are being honored Aug. 29 on new commemorative permanent stamps from Canada Post. The five stamps in the Great Canadian Comedians set pay tribute to Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short and Olivier Guimond.”
All are living honorees except for Guimond, who died in 1971 according to Jay.
Jay goes on to say, “The stamp designs pictured with this article are Canada Post publicity images. The stamps were designed by Kosta Tsetsekas, Mike Savage and John Belisle of Signals, a design firm in Vancouver. Canada Post stamp design manager Alain Leduc organized the stamp project.”
The stamps come in a booklet of 10. with each stamp repeated twice. A souvenir sheet is also available with all five stamps along with an uncut press sheet of four souvenir sheets.
