SATURDAY JUNE 23rd LINEUP:

Graham Clark:

Graham Clark resides in Vancouver, BC. He is a 3-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee and co-host of Maximum Fun’s Stop Podcasting Yourself. Clark is a regular on CBC’s The Debaters

and has appeared at Just for Laughs, Halifax Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and Bumbershoot. He is a winner of the Yuk Yuks Great Canadian Laugh Off and has appeared on HBO’s Funny As Hell. He has filmed his own hour-long Comedy Now special for CTV. Graham is also the creator of beardpaintings.com, where he sells paintings made using his beard as a paintbrush and donates the proceeds to charity.

 

SIMON KING:

Simon King has been featured at many comedy festivals including: The Just For Laughs Festival, The Vancouver International Comedy Festival, The TBS Las Vegas Comedy Festival, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and The HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado. A veteran touring comic, he is not only a workhorse performer averaging nearly four hundred shows a year but also an extremely prolific writer. In addition to numerous film and television credits, in 2008 The Comedy Network and CTV filmed a one-hour special starring him for the popular series Comedy Now. In early 2013 Simon recorded a second special, this one a half hour long, for the No Kidding series on Toronto-based IChannel. Simon has been featured in The LA times, the alternative arts paper the Georgia Straight, The Hollywood Reporter and many others.

 

STEEV LETTS:

Steev is a mildly thuggish but extremely lovable gay oaf. He finds inspiration in the many gross rituals that unite us all, and aims to make you laugh at that which makes you cringe. Steev’s style is loud, sweaty, self-deprecating and oddly sweet. Watching Steev perform is like seeing a caged bear try to befriend its own reflection – equal parts cute and sad with lots of confused grunting and moaning.

Steev won the Vancouver’s Funniest Amateur Comic contest in 2016 and has performed on showcases for Just For Laughs, JFL Northwest and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival.
