GLENN OTTAWAY

GlenOttaway

Whether performing as a master of ceremonies, or a featured performer, he delivers entertainment. Employing quick paced comedy with a pre-eminent ability to make the audience feel welcome, his material bounces from “in-yer-face” to “laid-back” and keeps the audience members’ minds twisting and spinning as they try to keep up with Glenn’s off-kilter philosophies on life and living. Versatility is the key word when describing Glenn Ottaway. From social functions to “meetings with a message”, Glenn Ottaway gives everyone a gift to remember – laughter!

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.

RON VAUDRY

Quickly becoming a forerunner on the Canadian comedy scene. Ron has appeared on numerous television shows in Canada, The United States, and the UK, as well as many of the top Comedy Festivals around the world. An uncompromising master in his field of hard hitting social and political satire, Ron’s reputation as a comic’s comic has not detered audiences from enjoying his unique comedic perspective around the world,
“As hard-boiled and urban as any native New Yorker.” – – The Scotsman

Aug 20 – Ron Vaudry (I had promised him two dates because he’s coming from BC and the Friday was cancelled)

“Biting, sometimes cynical and almost always angry, he’s mimicked but rarely mastered.” – – The Sun.

“His rapier wit and existential angst shine through in his act like a dark beacon from hell.” – – NOW Magazine.

“He has about as much vulnerability as a porcupine on amyl nitrate. Vaudry is funny and fun to watch.” – – EYE Weekly.

Intelligent, witty and sardonic, Ron Vaudry is the thinking man’s comedian. A satirical genius teetering precariously at the edge of comedy, Vaudry guides audiences through a series of hilarious, yet thought provoking political and social observations.

A favorite at both the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal and The Edinburgh Comedy Festival in Scotland, Ron has parlayed his standup success into headlining appearances at major comedy clubs on several continents. He is also a favourite at campuses across North America and the world.

His numerous television appearances include CBC’s “COMICS!”, Best of the Fest BBC3, “Comedy @ Club 54″, and “The Late Show” with Arsenio Hall. He has also been featured on several radio programs including CBC’s “Madly Off In All Directions” and “Definitely Not The Opera.”

Ron also plays many of the top comedy clubs and venues internationally.

Cynical, angry and always controversial, Ron is truly a talent to be savored

CASEY CORBIN

CaseyCorbin

Casey Corbin’s laid-back manner and friendly approach make him easy to watch. His observations on everyday life are thoughts we have but dare not express.

The comic has worked alongside many of the top acts in Canadian comedy, including Mike McDonald and Russell Peters, and in 2005 was personally chosen by Harland Williams to open his “Tasty Treats Tour” produced by the Just for Laughs Festival.

ROB MAILLOUX

Rob Mailloux 2 (1)

“It is important to have comedy clubs that are willing to take a risk in booking comedians who have something to say,” says Tyler Morrison (Creative Director of the Cottage Country Comedy Festival, touring partner of Rob). 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.

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…

 

BILL DAVERN

1bill-davern

Bill Davern is one of Canada’s finest and funniest impersonators.

Bill’s impressions of Neil Diamond, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, Johnny Carson and Jack Nicholson are sure to have you howling in your seats for more.

DAVE PATERSON

DavePaterson

Dave has honed his funnycraft in various clubs in and around Ontario and Western New York. This Peterborough-raised comic has a personable, intelligent, sometimes subtle, but always likable stage persona.

Dave takes his audiences to the edge, but not quite over it, making them laugh at things they know they probably shouldn’t. Whether ranting about family, relationships, or his continuing quest to try to get his life in order, Dave consistently gets audiences roaring and always leaves them entertained.

Dave has performed at the Laugh Resort, Absolute Comedy, Club 54, Corktown Comedy, and many other fine comedy venues.

 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).

 

KENNY ROBINSON

Image result for kenny robinson comedian

His irreverent, socially conscience, intelligent, opinionated and profane style of comedy has made him a fixture and favourite with comedy clubs, festivals, swingers conventions, radio, and television audiences for 3 decades.

Raunchy, energetic, sharp witted, and sharp dressed; Kenny Robinson is a one of a kind act. Not for the weak of heart or narrow minded. Kenny assaults your sensibilities and funny bone with unspoken truths.

PAUL HAYWOOD

Paul Haywood

One is swept up by this instantly likeable looneytune, and kept by the depth of material and performance. Able to work clean, yet has tipped more than his share of sacred cows. Paul has been a fixture on the National scene since winning the Toronto YukYuks new talent search in 1998.

RONNIE EDWARDS

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.
