Show: Ian Bagg
Venue: Gotham Comedy Club
Location:
208 W. 23rd Street NYC
Time:  8pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Ian Bagg started his comedy career in his native country, Canada. He proceeded to do all the show business things that every successful Canadian entertainer does. He went to a “Hockey Night in Canada” game on a Saturday night, performed at the “Montreal Comedy Festival,” kissed a fish in New Foundland and a “Comedy Now” special on CTV. So what does a Canadian do when he has done it all? He boards a train to New York City, lives in a youth hostel and ends up on “Late Night with O’Brien,” “The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson” and “Tonight Show with .” It is not always fun and games. He was forced to do “Make Me Laugh,” “Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson,” “Fridays” on NBC and the “Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.” Bagg was featured in Tim Robbins’ “The Cradle will Rock,” “MVP 2,” and “MXP.” Fun fact: he’s the the only known comic to have worked for Judd Apatow and NOT become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg being on such diverse networks as the History Channel, the Food Network, the Biography Channel and being the first ever Canadian to meet three US presidents — Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter and George Bush…although only one was in the White House at the time, he met one on a plane and the other at a hockey practice.

While working red carpet interviews, Ian has pissed off Brad Pitt, been hit with a champagne bottle and asked for chocolate covered pretzels by Alec Baldwin. You probably wonder what kind of man does this without imploding? The answer is a man whose dog survived a three- story fall and who’s been known to think he is twelve, but may actually be twenty-nine or seventy-two. Ian went to school to be an explosives engineer, but a lucky chance at an open mic made him the volatile one. He may be in your area sooner than you think, because this manchild does over 100,000 air miles a year. He has had 2 half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comics Climb” and has been featured in 2 seasons of “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution” on Comedy Central. His latest one-hour special, “Ian Bagg: Getting to F**king Know You” aired on Showtime. In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top 5 on NBC’s “.” He is currently on a 70+ date national tour with the Top 5 finalists.

Other TV credits include his role as the quirky bowling alley manager “Phil” on the network series “Ed,” and his witty commentary on cable’s “I Love the…” series.

Black’s movie roles include “Hell Baby,” “This is 40,” “Wet Hot American Summer,” “Take Me Home Tonight,” “Reno 911!: Miami,” “The Ten” and “The Baxter.” Black co-wrote the 2007 comedy “Run, Fatboy, Run,” directed by David Schwimmer and starring Simon Pegg, Hank Azaria and Thandie Newton. He wrote and directed the 2006 release of “Wedding Daze,” starring Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher.

His memoir, “You’re Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death and Other Humiliations,” was released in 2012 and is in development for a half-hour series. His latest book for adults is a collaboration with conservative writer Meghan McCain, entitled “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom.” He is the author of the contemporary classic “My Custom Van (and 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face),” and the children’s books “Chicken Cheeks,” “The Purple Kangaroo,” “A Pig Parade Is A Terrible Idea” and “I’m Bored.” He’s currently writing book reviews for the New York Times and working on three additional books of his own.
