Gavin Stephens is a Toronto-based Comedian and Writer, who has been described as “Stan Lee meets Bill Hicks” by The Grid Magazine, Gavin’s use of references and irreverent “Tarantino-like” ability to deconstruct pop-culture is a breath of fresh. Yet his crowd work, and improv are so inventively personal, you can’t help but connect mixing dark, silly and subversive material with edgy crowd work and stream of consciousness improv. Gavin has filmed multiple one-man specials for CTV and the Comedy Network, and recently preformed with Reggie Watts at #JFL42.
Not content with just being the star of Canada’s biggest nerd-friendly comedy night “NERDGASM”, Gavin was also named Best Stand-Up Comedian in NOW Magazine’s Readers Choice Poll, 2010. For five seasons was a lead actor and writer on the Gemini nominated sketch show Comedy Inc. on CTV. A multi-media sensation, Gavin has appeared at international festivals like Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Austin’s SXSW alongside indie comedy legends Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo and Marc Maron.
