The NDP convention in Toronto this weekend had more than it's fair share of comedic moments — a tragic rap performance, mangled speeches, an epic #votefail and some hilarious performances from "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" comedian Mark Critch.

One of the funniest moments came when Critch interrupted Peter Mansbridge's live broadcast from the convention floor to mock all seven candidates and suggest shots every time anyone mentioned Jack Layton.

Mansbridge's reaction? Priceless.

Critch was also there to pour Orange Crush for eventual victor Thomas Mulcair, even if the day turned out to be more of an "Orange Crash."

If his convention performance was any indication, Mulcair, and his beard, will likely provide viewers with plenty more comedic moments in the months to come.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs Tuesdays at 8:30 pm on CBC TV. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
