THIS WEEK’S COMEDIANS
Pete Johansson has earned the title of global headlining comic with a relentless non stop schedule taking him to every corner of the globe. His unique socially progressive, intellectually challenging, yet accessible and silly comedy has garnered a devoted following of fans looking for laughs with something more. This profile was recently bolstered with his very well reviewed (chortle.co.uk) first comedy special ‘You might also enjoy…Pete Johansson’ released by Netflixsimultaneously in 82 countries and a critically acclaimed and powerful appearance on Comedy Central’s ‘This is Not Happening’.
A favourite at comedy festivals, Pete is one of only three Canadians ever nominated for an Edinburgh award at the Edinburgh Fringe, and has been invited to perform from South Africa to Australia to Singapore. Originally from Kelowna, Pete started performing in his teens, and developed his art from coast to coast in Canada making his first appearance at The Just For Laughs festival when he was only 24 and following that up with 6 more appearances at the festival over his 20 year career, including 4 galas taped for the CBC. Numerous other TV appearances fill his resume, from The Late Late Show on CBS, Premium Blend on Comedy Central, Friday Night on NBC, Russell Howard’s Good News on BBC, The Best of the Fest on Channel 4, Live From the Comedy Store on Comedy Central, Russell Peters Red Light District on Showtime, 2 Episodes of ‘The Debaters’ TV show on CBC, one of which was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award, and three Winnipeg Comedy festival Gala’s. A relentless writer, and social critic you can always expect an engaging and intriguing show from this once in a lifetime comedian.
Darryl Orr is a 35 year old stand-up comedian, musician, and coward. In 2010 Darryl was honoured to be one of the finalists for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund award for an outstanding new comic. He lost, but quickly bounced back to lose the Bite TV’s Standup and Bite Me competition in 2011. In 2013 Darryl was featured on iChannel’s stand-up comedy show ‘No Kidding”. 2014 finally saw the success he deserved as Darryl landed the coveted “Big 3” Comedy Festivals, taping TV spots for Montreal Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Halifax Comedy Festival. Darryl continues to scoot around the GTA, banging his head against the wall in various comedy clubs and on independent shows, telling jokes that *he* doesn’t even get sometimes.
How likeable is Tim Rabnett? Well for starters he’s overcome the stigma of being an Ontario-born Anglophone to become one of Montreal’s most beloved comedians.
It helps that he’s extremely funny, using a deliberate, often academic approach to deliver intelligent, insightful and occasionally outrageous material. Tim is equally comfortable sharing his ideas in a clean corporate environment, as he is in colleges or clubs.
Tim has recently filmed television sets for Just For Laughs, The Halifax Comedy Festival and CBC radio’s LOL and The Debaters. Whether you are young or old, clean or crass, and even if you generally don’t like Ontario, everyone finds reasons to be delighted by the talent of Tim Rabnett.
