Scott Dumas is a Stand-Up Comedian, Actor, Writer, and Musician.
Experience: After graduating from Carleton University in Ottawa with a degree in Psychology, Scott Dumas took the next logical step that anyone with such a prestigious certificate would make. He pursued a career in life insurance sales. Two years of commission-less pay days later, Scott Dumas took his sales and financial skills, as well as his knowledge of the human psyche and got a job hustling mortgages at Bank of Montreal. It took seven years before he put two-and-two together and didn’t come up with four. He realized that people are screwed up!. because of money.
In 1997, he moved to Calgary, quit his job and decided to pursue something else. Scott Dumas had no idea it would be stand-up comedy.

He has performed for numerous corporate functions, fundraisers and golf tournaments.
His fearless attitude and versatility as well as his comfortable presence in front of a camera landed him a job as host of M-Style, a Maxim Magazine type show on Men TV on the digital network. Look for it on channel 97, where the show is played 6 days a week, 3 times per day.
Doom is also a published writer who regularly contributes to Vex Magazine, a Calgary-based men’s lifestyle magazine. In the past 2 years he has interviewed and written articles on Tom Cochrane, Mike Keenan, Craig Conroy and Kaleb Toth, to name a few.

“As the coordinator of AGRO Equipments 2009 Christmas and annual awards ceremony I would like to extend my heartfelt Thank you. Every year we go through the difficult and stressful task to figure out not just the place, or meal but also the entertainment to keep 300 plus people happy.AGRO Equipment has had Casino’s, Train rides and also we have had Country music singer Paul Brandt to entertain us. This year it was an honor to be able to hire Scott Dumas. I had the pleasure to see Scott the night before AGRO’S event. And WOW!!! different atmosphere and different crowd. Scott was able to change his set to accommodate his surroundings. Myself, staff, and the VP’s of AGRO were very impressed with Scott’s professional attitude and out standing comedy.” Mama K and boys are looking forward to see Scott again in a different atmosphere.”
“Scott, You were amazing! The Christmas party rocked. My cheeks hurt today from laughing so hard…..thanks again for everything!!!”

“Fabulously funny, Dumas detours through the audience kept us laughing and engaged. Note to self, Argyle is not cool. Sylvan Lake Chamber of Commerce. We recently hired comedian Scott Dumas to perform and act as Master of Ceremonies at our 25th Annual Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Gala. The event was a semi-formal affair attended by 250 local business people from our area. Scott arrived promptly as promised and after a short explanation of what was expected in his capacity as MC, he launched into his comedy routine. I am pleased to report that he did a tasteful job on both counts. His routine had everyone in stitches. When I wasn’t dabbing the tears from my eyes, my job as chairperson had me intently watching the crowd for their reaction. Everywhere I looked I saw people roaring with laughter. I had several people approach me after the evening was over saying that they had to hold hard to prevent from peeing themselves. They particularly enjoyed his gentle ribbing of our Mayor. I had told him that although it wouldn’t be a prudish crowd, that I didn’t want him to be too off color. No one reported being offended by any of his material. During the awards presentations, he was able to inject humor into what can often be considered a bit dry often mis-pronouncing names or ribbing unusually named companies. I would have no difficulty in highly recommending Scott for similar type events.”

“I was introduced to Scott Dumas on my 40th birthday party, what made this a very special night for me I had no idea that my husband had talked to Scott about coming over to our “shop” to give a comedy performance that night, I was a little intoxicated at the time Scott had arrive, and just thinking he was one our our employees I thought nothing of him being there, until one of our great family friends got on the microphone and announced for me to come upstairs and have a chair….. and there he was Scott Dumas or as I liked to call him Duane. Well I was thrilled with his comedy act and I was very impressed that he took the time out of his scheduled performance in Cranbrook British Columbia to come to our “shop” and entertain forty some people that he had never meet before, and made us all laugh until our stomachs hurt. Scott not only is a great comedian he is also a great human being, my friends had the time of their lives and I had a great 40th birthday party. Scott you will always be welcome over to the shop anytime, it was great meeting you and look forward in seeing you again in your travels. Thank you so very very much for taking the time out, and giving us a great memory in our journey in life.”
