King Of Kensington

Considered a milestone in Canadian television, King of Kensington was the first TV comedy that honoured the country’s ethnic diversity. At the heart of the show is the affable everyman Larry King (played with effortless charm by Al Waxman), a working class Jewish convenience store owner who lives with his mother in the multi-ethnic community of Toronto’s Kensington Market. Over the course of five years, the show went through various casting changes while it introduced a memorable series of regulars: Helene Winstone, Fiona Reid, Peter Boretski, Rosemary Radcliffe and Jayne Eastwood.
