FEATURED ON THE SHOW:
Originally from the west coast, Ian swam against the current and moved to Halifax, where his skewed bi-coastal perspective spills over into his comedy. A favourite at clubs throughout the Maritimes, his brand of comedy was the foundation for the "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" name for the Island Comedy Fest's dirty show. He likes to take aim at many of life's absurdities, but his favourite target, by far, is himself. Ian has also appeared on CBC’s Laugh out Loud and the Halifax Comedy Festival
Born and raised in P.E.I Dan Hendricken moved to Halifax to start stand up comedy. Since moving he has quickly become a major up and comer in the comedy scene. Dan is known for his lighthearted and witty jokes all delivered with a goofy likability resembling a giant Golden Retriever. Dan has appeared on the Halifax Comedy Festival, the Hubcap Comedy Festival and has opened for world touring comics like Tig Notaro.
Charming, Engaging, and thoughtful are words. Andrew Vaughan is a comedian from the East Coast of Canada.
Originally from a small town on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Andrew started doing comedy in Halifax in 2010. Since that day Andrew has gone from telling jokes in a bar with 12 people drinking, to telling jokes in a room full of 300 people drinking.
In 2014 Andrew made his first appearance for the Halifax Comedy Festival Homegrown show and was invited back to the same show in 2015. In May of 2015 Andrew made his national radio debut when a set of his aired on CBC’s Laugh Out Loud Program. Andrew is a frequent at the martime Yuk Yuk's comedy clubs and does yearly runs with Ontario's Absolute Comedy. He has also had his comedy played on Sirius XM satellite radio and he is too sheepish to hit on your waitresses.
