comedy6

One of the most requested comedians at clubs, casinos and major corporations throughout the world. A madcap romp through comic insanity.  Using his off-beat sense of humour and wacky inventions he releases unbridled hilarity using props such as vacuums, whips and blowers. A veteran of nightclubs, concerts and corporate functions, Wes wows his audience with his crazy antics and comical crusades.

JEFF LEESON

jeffleeson

Jeff Leeson has been described as “The King of Crowd Work” and a “one of a kind performer” by his fellow comics. His off the cuff, improvisational, electrifying style leaves crowds not only wanting more, but stunned at what they just witnessed.

While a lot of comics work to hone and craft an act that they can deliver verbatim to audiences night after night, Jeff creates a brand new show every time based solely on the audience in front of him.

Jeff began his journey into comedy at the age of 14, and now 15 years later is one of the best and brightest comics on the professional circuit. The brilliant thing about Jeff’s act is that no two shows are ever alike. His signature end of show “wrap-up”, where he integrates all the audience members he has already talked to, has been described as “human fireworks”. Jeff’s stand up has been featured on Sirius/XM radio, The Bob & Tom Show (WGN), MTV, & iChannel, and his improvisational style made him the perfect fit to host “London Tonight with Jeff Leeson” (RogersTV) and “The Inside Joke” (iChannel).

DAVID GREEN

Punniest Comedian in Canada – Cogeco Tv

Since moving to Niagara Falls in 2007, this Nottingham born comedian has established himself as a staple in the Canadian entertainment scene. He would prefer to be a paper clip.

An award winning writer with numerous TV and festival appearances under his belt,  he now spends his time travelling the country spreading the joy like butter on crumpets.

Armed with quick wit and a dry British humour rumoured to be more refreshing than a moist towelette, his creative wordplay and silly stories always leave audiences wanting more.

Some call him brilliant, some call him odd, some don’t call him at all. The loss of his phone has proven to be somewhat problematic.

JEFF ESTRELA

Ever wonder what happened to the chubby, nice guy down the street in your neighbourhood growing up?

Well look no further! He never moved away.

Jeff E brings a unique perspective on growing up first generation Canadian and failing to launch, while he discusses comical situations and life experiences that come with a 35 year old guy living at home with his Portuguese parents, or as he likes to call them, “roommates”.  Jeff E has only been on the comedy scene for a year and half, and is known as the nicest guy in comedy, a title which he holds onto tightly and he will crush anyone that tries to take it from him.  His brand of humor is playful , lovable and cheeky all at once.  He lays it out there for all to see.

Ronnie Edwards

Ronnie’s wonderful sense of coolness and style enables him to stride on stage in a confident manner really befitting his talent. Whether performing on home soil or the other side of the Atlantic, Ronnie’s streetwise humour enables him to bring a huge load of fun to wherever he goes. A cultural wonder, Ronnie’s particularly keen perceptions on those around him come from his Canadian/Jamaican upbringing, you can’t say that isn’t just a little unique.

Enter Rob Mailloux, who not only believes this…but he’s been banned from performing at Absolute Comedy Clubs and Yuk Yuk’s for his vocal slayings.

MARC TRINIDAD

With a height and frame that could be considered ‘towering’, comedian Marc Trinidad has a commanding persona, piercing eyes and the perfect humour that makes laugh your socks off.

Born in Trinidad, his is a typical comic’s story of being the class clown, fully equipped with wit and great non-verbal skills that lighten up any dull situation.

If that’s not enough, his bold eyes and ‘ratbat’ ears will certainly do the trick.

STEVE COX

SteveCoxWithName

Don’t go see Stephen Cox if you don’t want to be blasted off your seat by his wacked-out brand of Canuck humour. Don’t go see him if you don’t want to see the funniest impression of Jean Chretien ever performed by anyone. And, don’t go see him if you’re not ready to suffer some serious face cramps and a case of buzzing ears from the mountain of laughter that will undoubtedly fill the comedy club…
