Both nights come before the big show on March 1, where the national screen awards will hand out its biggest prizes on a two-hour live CBC show to be hosted by Andrea Martin.

Los Angeles-based Rose also plays Bill the bartender on CBC’s Mr. D comedy and is a regular on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial and has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
