Evan Carter is a Toronto Based Stand-Up Comedian, Show Host, and MC. As a comedian, Evan Carter has been called “a young Bill Cosby”.
Experience: Evan Carter started his life in the west end of Toronto in an area known as Etobicoke. Since the early 1980’s Evan has worked full time as a stand-up comic as well as a long history in the meeting planning industry as a writer, producer and performer. For three decades Evan has been successfully mining his three live entertainment veins – stand-up comedian, show host and MC. Evan’s versatility, experience, and professionalism has served him well and he can move easily from concert halls, opening for such acts as Gladys Knight, The Temptations, Air Supply, Dionne Warwick and many other top names in the world of show business, to smaller functions like private corporate affairs or fundraisers for community groups and sports teams. As a comedian Evan has worked on numerous television shows, including his own half hour special on the CBC and as an on air host at the Shopping Channel for four and a half years.
Performance Style: Evan spends his time observing the world through his eyes, the eyes of a father, husband, son and friend. His likes, dislikes and especially what confuses him provide an endless source of fascination and material. It’s not unusual to hear comments like “that happened to me the other day”, “my kids do that all the time”, “my husband/wife does that to me too, I thought I was the only one”. Well you’re not, and comedian Evan Carter is here to let you know and that it’s okay to laugh about it.
Evan co-facilitates diversity sessions designed to help participants understand and challenge themselves. He has exceptional presentation abilities, powerful communication skills and is an effective listener. While Evan has worked in the U.S., the bulk of his experience in working for corporate Canada includes production of corporate videos for Royal Bank, Bank of Montreal, Pitney Bowes, Bell Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart and Canadian Tire, Compaq Canada Inc., among others.
Why hire Evan Carter? If you’re looking for a comedian who will come out and attack the audience with insults and abusive language you can stop reading right now. But if you want a stand-up comedian who allows the audience to sit back relax and have a good hard laugh at life then you’ve come to the right place.
Maybe you’re not looking for a comedian, but an experienced professional who can act as an MC or as a show host for the event. Someone who can keep the function well paced and moving. Evan Carter has many a time been called upon to do just that. The last thing an event organizer wants to do is find someone in the organization and convince them to stand up in front of the group (it’s number one on the fear chart) and act as an MC or show host and if nobody wants to do it, guess who gets the job? That’s right the organizer….hire a professional, someone with broadcast experience, hire an individual whether it be for black tie or blue jeans who can handle those duties for you and your function.
