Monty Scott

Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Monty Scott manages to combine an urban practicality with an intellectual and often silly bent. His debut album, The Abyss Stares Back was nominated for a 2020 Juno Award for Comedy Album of the Year. Always smart and original, he’s performed in theaters and clubs throughout North America and been featured on the Comedy Network, MTV and SiriusXM Radio.


Paul Haywood

Paul has been a fixture on the national scene since winning the Toronto New Comic Search in 1998. Over his 20 years he has done it all from packed theaters of 1000 people to 25 people in a man-cave garage. Paul has his own one hour Comedy Now special and was a hit at CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival. Paul has starred in over 40 commercials worldwide, showcasing his comedic timing and antics. You can continue to see Paul’s own Comedy Now special on CTV, The Comedy Network and online, and can be heard on XM Satellite radio.


Gavin Stephens

Gavin Stephens is a stand-up comedian who skillfully balances playful irony and morbid silliness; he is known for his (really) quick wit and stream of consciousness comedic style. Gavin has been featured in Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Austin’s SXSW, alongside comedy legends Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress and Marc Maron. He has been named one of the “10 Funniest Canadians” by E! Network and chosen as “Best Local Stand-up Comic” in NOW Magazine’s Readers Choice poll. Gavin is also a Juno award winner, for his latest Album “All Inclusive Coma” available on Howl & Roar records.
