The Sloppy Jones team (Jonathan Neil Alexander, Sophie Nation, Jamie Hart, Susan Nation, Sebastian Sage and Lory Mpiana) was thrilled to attend the 11th Canadian Screen Awards in support of comedic icon Linda Kash for her nomination for Best Supporting Performance, Web Program or Series.
Linda Kash plays Deborah Jones, antagonist Frank’s estranged wife and the scheming restaurant mommyger/new owner of the Sloppy Jones Grill where the protagonists work.
Unfortunately Linda Kash, Colin Mochrie and Emily Cohn were all working out of town that week and could not celebrate in Toronto.

More About Sloppy Jones
Sloppy Jones is a short form slasher comedy series created by Sophie, Jonathan and Jamie. It features three queer twenty-something servers working at the Sloppy Jones Grill: RORY, a free spirited people pleaser played by Sophie; HARPER, a book-smart, bisexual bartender played by Jamie; and THOMAS, a calculating b*tch played by Jonathan. This Unholy Trinity’s world is upended when they discover the bloody torso of their dirtbag boss FRANKJONES in the freezer, just as DEBORAH, Frank’s estranged wife, makes a perfectly timed entrance into their lives. They are caught red handed disposing of the body by wine heiress CASSIE played by Lory Mpiana and a mysterious SLASHER. Now every single one of them looks guilty and no one is safe until the trio find out-Who killed Frank…and who will they kill next?
