This Week’s Comedians
ROB ROSS was born to be a stand-up comic. Or, more accurately, Rob Ross dropped out of university to be a stand-up comic. Tentatively taking the stage as an awkward and gangly 18 year old, Ross knew stand-up was his destiny/only option. (Now THAT is passion).
Now a veteran touring headliner with many years experience under his belt, he has amassed an impressive list of performing credits; “COMEDY NOW”, “COMICS”, “JUST FOR LAUGHS”, “HALIFAX COMEDY FESTIVAL”, “WINNIPEG COMEDY FESTIVAL”, “OPEN MIKE WITH MIKE BULLARD”, “MADLY OFF IN ALL DIRECTIONS” and many more too numerous (or less impressive) to mention.
Since moving from Alberta to Toronto in 1993, Ross has also found steady work as a television writer. His credits include; “RICK MERCER’S MONDAY REPORT”, “ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FARCE”, “THE GEMINIS”, “THE JUNOS”, “THE NHL AWARDS” (and many more failed television pilots too depressing to mention.) Currently he is a creative producer with MTV CANADA.
On stage Ross has a unique style- relaxed yet fast paced. His material is intelligent and original. If you’ve read this far you should probably book him.
With the majority of his humour derived from his own failings, Dion has been widely accepted across a myriad of stages in this country and the next.
His changing emotional pace and youthful energy make for a versatile performance, earning him opportunities and accolades such as “Best of the Fest” at the Brighton Fringe Festival, (England) “Best of the Fest” Galway Intl. Fringe Festival, (Ireland), an album taping with Comedy Records (Toronto), SiriusXM, NXNE (Toronto), NextFest (Edmonton), and the Edmonton Intl. Fringe Festival.
“I’ll always book Canadians, especially this one.” - Tom Mullen (London, England)
“Even his laugh is funny.” - Mathew Sushi (Toronto, Canada)
“He’s an insane person I talk to.” - Dion Arnold (Car, Road)
Originally from the west coast, Ian swam against the current and moved to Halifax, where his skewed bi-coastal perspective spills over into his comedy. A favourite at clubs throughout the Maritimes, his brand of comedy was the foundation for the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” name for the Island Comedy Fest’s dirty show. He likes to take aim at many of life’s absurdities, but his favourite target, by far, is himself.
