Brett Martin is rising Canadian Comedy star. Having recently shot his first national television special – ‘Comedy Now’ for CTV & The Comedy Network, and combining that with his relentless touring across Canada, he’s beginning to become a familiar face in the Canadian Comedy landscape. While his conversational style puts crowds at ease, his unique blend of goofiness and biting insight keeps them on their toes. Simply put, he’s a Comedian you should see.
He first hit the Comedy Stage in Calgary. Not long afterwards, he became a working comedian, honing his skills on the road throughout Western Canada in comedy clubs and sketchy bars. Soon after, he moved to Toronto where he quickly became a full time Comedian in Canada’s largest and most competitive comedy market. With a taste for adventure and bilingual women, he relocated to Montreal, where he was selected as one of Montreal funniest Comics, earning selection for an XM Satellite Radio taping featuring the city’s best.
Years later, he calls Vancouver home. He has become one of Canada’s busiest Acts, headlining Yuk Yuks Comedy Clubs across Canada, as well as Colleges, Theaters, Festivals, Casinos, Corporate Performances, and more, hosting Talk and Variety Shows, multiple TV appearances, featured in print and radio and more. His ‘Comedy Now’ is due to air in 2012, and he’s since recorded a 3rd set for XM Radio.
His style is perfect in the environment where every nuance and idea can be digested, yet he’s versatile enough to grab the surliest of crowds. With an eye and mouth for things bigger than just his own world, his Comedy tackles premises that leave you thinking, laughing and wondering when you’ll get a chance to see him again.

COMMENTS AND REVIEWS
“Saw you in Ottawa – BRILLIANT! I’ve seen comedians on TV that weren’t even half as good as your show! Keep it up – it was f*ckin’ funny!! Cheers!”
“I’m a hard-core comedy club junky (hit 3 in LA in one night) and I keep this mental list of “ones to watch” – you’re on the top of my list baby!”
“Saw your show last night. It was great! Even though you picked on me and my gf. That’s ok, I survived by laughing a lot. It helps. At least now I know why you didn’t have any sleep before getting on stage. Keeping looking for those snatchues..”
“I got the vibe he’d rather eat the mic and fist than pander to the crowd. Darker material and off-kilter delivery that I’m still having trouble quantifying. It’s (Comics) like this that can make a show stand out from the usual. I think I’d have to see him a few more time to firm up why I liked him but it’s sufficient to say I did and want to see him again.”
