People Are Like That (Series) (1980)

John Kastner and Suzette Couture took to the streets in People Are Like That, a two-part CBC comedy. The pair set out to catch unassuming people off guard in humourous situations. For example, the camera looked for reactions when a marathon bicycle racer climbed out of a sewer with his bicycle; and cab drivers were thrust, without warning, into a live TV drama. The program was designed much along the lines of Candid Camera and the old Steve Allen man-on-the-street interviews. The idea was to catch people in action before they had the chance to get camera-shy.

John Kastner created and developed the idea for the show
