Tim Nutt tells jokes, well, more like funny stories with jokes and has been getting away with it for just over 20 years. Tim pushes comedy to explosive new levels and dimensions. He expertly explores the hilarity in everyday life, delighting you with his bizarre concepts and twisted viewpoints, combining one-liners and crafty storytelling.
He has had some pretty cool adventures; he’s been to comedy festivals all over the world; Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Montreal’s famous JUST FOR LAUGHS, Halifax’s HA Comedy Festival and The Winnipeg Comedy Festival to name just a few.
Often compared to some of his comedy heroes like Billy Connolly and George Carlin, Tim is a consummate Storyteller and Entertainer, weaving his unique point of view into a great performance that is sure please.
“With a name like Nutt, it's hard to imagine a career outside comedy. This longhair's brain is trained on everyday observations filtered through a layer of laconic spite. Nutt plays against his looks. At 6-foot-2, with shoulder length hair and a beard, Nutt is every inch the rocker. Crowds expect him to tell gags about biker babes and blowing joints but he is much too intelligent and sophisticated. He's a one-man-war on stupid people, playing on audiences' preconceptions." - Andrew Clark, The Toronto Star
Chris Griffin is one of comedy's most dynamic storytellers. After winning his regional round of the Great Canadian Laugh Off during his first year of comedy, Chris did something crazy. He quit his full time job, sold his house and hit stages across North America sharing his wild comedic adventures. It is a gamble that paid off. His move to Vancouver has brought a ton of success for Griffin, including winning 1st place in Vancouver's Yuk Yuk's Competition, being one of the only Canadian comics to ever make the finals of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, performing every year at the Just For Laughs Northwest Festival and sharing the stage with notable comics such as Norm MacDonald, Doug Stanhope, Tom Papa, Ari Shaffir and Bert Kreischer. The past two years Griffin has been nominated for 5 and took home 2 Vancouver Comedy Awards. He also recorded his second full length comedy special in full video over two shows at the Biltmore. Watch for the release in 2019!
