About this Event

Lars Callieou

Lars Callieou has been a comedian in Edmonton for over 16 years. He's appeared at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montréal and his one hour comedy special airs regularly on The Comedy Network, but he's always returned to the city he calls home. In 2004 he won the title of Funniest New Comedian in Alberta (he beat Calgary that year in the finals) and since then his career has taken him to 24 countries, including four trips to entertain the troops serving overseas (Kuwait, IRAQ, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan, Dubai and Abu Dhabi). His radio show Comic Jenius, has been airing on CJSR 88.5 FM for the past 14 years and has been nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards. VUE Weekly even named Lars 'Best Indie DJ in Edmonton' in their annual Best of Edmonton contest.

Lars can be heard on CBC's LoL, CBC's The Debaters and on Sirius/XM. He's toured with the likes of Miss Joan Rivers, Jeff Foxworthy, and Bob Saget. This past spring he made his fifth appearance at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia. He’s also appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, the Boston Comedy Festival, the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and the Halifax Comedy Festival in… well… Halifax. It’s safe to say he’s become an overnight success in just 16 years.
