    About Us

    Double Exposure is Bob Robertson and Linda Cullen. Their partnership began with a weekly radio comedy program on the CBC national radio network in February 1987 called “Double Exposure.” It ran for ten and a half very successful years with an average weekly audience of over 300 thousand listeners. During that time, Double Exposure was nominated three times for the ACTRA Radio awards (The Nellies) winning for Best Comedy Program. From 1990 to 1997, Double Exposure toured Canada, playing in major theatres in every province and territory, including the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, The Jubilee Auditoriums in Calgary and Edmonton, the Royal Alex Theatre in Toronto, and The Orpheum in Vancouver.

    In 1994, they began to write, produce and perform an annual New Year’s Eve television special on the national CBC TV network called “A Swift Kick in The Year End.” It ran for three years with exceptional ratings of over a million viewers each time.

    In 1997, Double Exposure was contracted by the CTV network to produce a weekly comedy program. Linda Cullen and Bob Robertson were executive producers, writers and performers working through their production company Cullen Robertson Productions Inc. Double Exposure ran on CTV for three years until the spring of 2000. During that time it was nominated for six Gemini Awards including The Chrysler Canada “People’s Choice Award” for the six highest rated Canadian television programs.

    Double Exposure won the U.S International Film and Video Festival’s Gold Camera Award as well as the Saskatoon Film and Video Festival’s Golden Sheaf Award. They continue to produce, write and perform in television, including a one hour comedy special on CBC Television New Year’s Eve 2003.
