Brian Stollery (MC)Brian Stollery rarely waits more than a heartbeat before inviting his audiences to have a laugh at his expense. Observational, autobiographical and hilariously self-deprecating, Brian Stollery’s brand of comedy reveals the underlying absurdity of everyday life in a way that is as scathingly honest as it is fast paced and energetic. Mr. Stollery has spent more than twenty years mining the stuff of everyday life for laughs in a way that is universal and unique. His quick-witted delivery covers a variety of topics flowing effortlessly from one bit to another. Brian’s material is current, ensuring he covers the latest trends and events both from his life and the world. His clever word play and witty commentary on life delights audiences wherever he performs. Through his steady work ethic, great writing, and a seemingly unending supply of compromising photographs of every comedy producer in Canada, Thomas is definitely someone you can expect to hear more about in the future.
