  • Jon Dore

    Jon Dore

    Named one of "10 comics to watch" by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. 

    Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted theJust for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival's Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.

    From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. 

    Dore is the host of HBO Canada's Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its' fourth season. 

    He is the star of his own award-winning 'mockumentary' series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life's challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network.

    Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central's specials including Live At GothamCC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) andScare Tactics (SyFy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment

    A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS).

    Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. 

    TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the "rising stars of the future" and Toronto weekly NOW Magazinenamed him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show.

    The Spanglers

    The Spanglers' hail from Americana-laden America and were raised on song, dance, and a love for fashion. From child stars to adult entertainers (but not *adult entertainers*) the Spanglers have maintained a commitment to flash and dazzle, while staying really down to earth.

  • Hugh Moore

    Hugh Moore

     Hugh Moore's comedy journey began on the streets of NY where he was raised by his parents, a poor farrier and coppersmith team collectively known as the metallics.
    While performing on the NY comedy scene Moore, affectionately known as "Catwoman" was an immediate stand out. His low key, deadpan, yet regal demeanor enabled him to perform regularly at the premiere comedy club The Comic Strip. Moore honed his skills at the club nightly and he wrote daily.
    Working for Vibe led to him wearing normal clothing and writing on other shows such as MTV's The Lyricist Lounge Show, Fox's The Best Damn Sports Show Period and head writer on MTV's Nick Cannon Presents: Wildnout. The show that entered MooreÂ’s name into the history books for being the lowest paid head writer in the history of television. Moore continues to perform standup all over the country.
    His goals are to win an Emmy award and kick Tito Santana in the head.
