Hire A Comedian From Toronto For Your Next Big City Party

Tis The Season To Be Jolly So Hire A Celebrated Comedian For Your Christmas Party

When it comes to the office’s annual Christmas party, don’t overestimate the power of a catered dinner and a few free drinks tickets from the best venues downtown Toronto can offer. When awkward conversation and forced mingling with other departments is a high probability, no amount of food or cocktails can tempt colleagues into attendance. If you’re worried too many people will RSVP ‘can’t attend’ to your office Christmas party, it’s time for you to pull out the big guns. Hire a celebrated comedian from Toronto to ensure your party goes off without a hitch.

An experienced corporate comedian can deftly work any holiday crowd, loosening them up in ways gourmet catering and a fully stocked bar can’t. A side-splitting set can take up 20, 30, or even 60 minutes of your evening, but its effects can far outlast the time a comedian spends on stage. Co-workers from different departments can bond over what they’ve seen. More importantly, they’ll have more conversation fodder than the office’s unreliable mail delivery system as they share a laugh over their favourite side-splitting joke. But not just any comedian you can find in Toronto is up to the standards you’ve set for your Christmas party. That’s why we’ve made a list of the best comedians in Toronto who are perfect for any holiday party.

Known as “That Canadian Guy”, Glen has been the country’s top touring comedian for over three decades. Though he may seem just like an “average guy”, his performances are anything but. With appearances at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, The Chicago Comedy Festival, and “The Mayfest” in Glasgow, he’s perfected a truly hysterical show that alternates between topical (or political) observations to the laid-back musings of a season comedian who’s toured the world. For those who enjoy edgier, more intelligent kinds of comedy, you’ll find humour in Glen’s set. Quick-witted and clever, Glen’s act can also be custom-made for your company. As a former advertising executive, he isn’t afraid to get into the business side of things. But don’t worry! His particular brand of clever and imaginative comedy will lighten any event.

From one comedian who’s known as “the guy” to a comedian who’s known as the “best comedian to see after a messy break up”, we present one of our most recognizable comedians, Debra DiGiovanni. Her razor sharp wit and self-deprecating humour has taken her all over the world. With two Comedy Now! specials to her name, Debra has also recorded Live at Gotham, a Comedy Central special, and 3 galas at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Though her career has soared since 2000, Debra doesn’t let it get to her head. Indeed, she remains playful and charming wherever her work takes her. Toronto is her home, and she delights hometown audiences with her honest, rapid-fire delivery about being single in the city.

Toronto also claims Stewart Francis, an internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian known for his deadpan performances. Dry and razor sharp, Stewart’s comedy has well-deserved pay-offs that have impressed audiences all over Asia, Europe, Great Britain, and North America. Though he’s seen the world, performing at famous comedy festivals like Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, Montreal’s Just for Laughs, and the Smirnoff Comedy Festival in South Africa, Stewart is ready to entertain and delight audiences at your Christmas party. A typical set is jam-packed with hilarious one-liners and side-splitting gags, as Stewart puts on a pun-filled show guaranteed to leave your guest list cackling. What else would you expect from the man called one of the greatest comedians in the world by Craig Ferguson of The Late Late Show?

These comedic heavy-hitters are some of our most recognizable and celebrated Toronto-based comedians on our roster, but we encourage you to spend a few minutes to see our full list of comedians travelling out of Hog Town. With names like Kate Davis, Mike Bullard, and Jonny Harris in our directory, you’ll find a comedian you can trust to enhance your Christmas Party. We’ve made the navigation simple enough.

We’ve made it easy to tweak your search to include those who will travel from other major cities in the country, too; or you can also search for specific themes of comedy that you think will work well with your audience.
