Chris Gordon
Chris Gordon
There is no other comedian today who is providing such a unique, original and innovative approach to comedy and audience interaction as Chris Gordon. In his first year of comedy Chris hit the airwaves nationally, as he was selected as the "#1 Pick in the Country" on CBC's "So You Think You’re Funny?" Chris Gordon’s originality continues to make an impact: from his break out performances at the Just For Laughs Festivals in Montreal and Toronto; the Seattle International Comedy Competition; Vancouver's NorthWest Comedy Festival; being featured in the Toronto showcase of NBC's Last Comic Standing; and at The Hot Tub show in Los Angeles; his appeal is undeniable.

Chris played Contrell on Season 3 of the hit AMC western Hell On Wheels. You may also recognize him from appearing nation wide in a Sports Select Lottery, or Coors Light Beer commercial or as the spokesman for the viral Youtube "Muzooka" campaign. Chris has trained and performed in Los Angeles at the prestigious Upright Citizens Brigade, the Groundlings, the Improv Olympic, as well as the world famous Comedy Store; institutions whose alumni include Will Farrell, Conan O’Brien and Jim Carey to name a few.
Chris’ style of comedy has been described as "very unusual (as usual) and very funny... it's what really sets him apart from the pack". He is seen as clean, current, hip, inventive, and edgy, which gives him an improvisational feel and a strong connection with the crowd. Offering fresh perspectives woven seamlessly with absurd observations, Chris always delivers a dynamic interactive experience that is hilarious and unforgettable.
Brett Forte
Brett Forte
Brett was born in 92' but we're pretty sure he grew up in the 80's. He's constantly embarrassed by his generation... and thinks you should be too. For Brett, frustration leads to comedy. If something rubs him the wrong way, you'll be sure to get a laugh out of it. In less than two years, he's already been awarded as 'Calgary's Top New Comic' and 'Edmonton's Funniest Person'. 
Adam Ruby

Adam Ruby is often described as a force of energy on stage. In under two short years, Adam has taken his act to all new levels touring Western Canada and performing for hundreds of crowds. His fresh takes on parenting, spoiled kids and what it’s like to live in a politically correct world is nothing short of hilarious.
In his first year, Adam was a top-three finalist in the Yuk Yuk’s “Yuk & Comers Comedy Competition” and has opened for major headliners from all over North America.

Most recently Adam performed at sold out crowds in Pender Harbour, Yuk Yuk’s Calgary, Airdrie and Black Diamond.
