Between live standup comedy bookings, his Debaters Live On Tour theatre show, his twice weekly CBC Radio show The Debaters and a plethora of media commitments including his own idea The Smartass-ociates, I’m surprised he still has time to write. But thankfully he does squeeze it in and what has come out so far is The Book of Letters I Didn’t Know Where To Send, several articles published in several publications and his uncensored online pieces which may renew your hope in reading online pieces. He’s performed his comedy all across North America and all around the world in places like Australia, Ireland, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. Yet wherever he performs his fierce Canadian pride shines through. Which is likely why he’s taped national television specials each year since 2002 including numerous Just For Laughs galas, Halifax and Winnipeg comedy festivals and also brought funny to the world of film critiquing as host and moderator of Short Film Faceoff which awards cash and national recognition to emerging Canadian filmmakers. Oh yeah, he also hosted the national broadcast of Canada’s largest literary awards, The Giller Prize, in 2016.
