Gavin Stephens is a stand-up comedian who skillfully balances playful irony and morbid silliness; he is known for his (really) quick wit and stream of consciousness comedic style. Gavin has been featured in Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Austin’s SXSW, alongside comedy legends Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress and Marc Maron. He has been named one of the “10 Funniest Canadians” by E! Network and chosen as “Best Local Stand-up Comic” in NOW Magazine’s Readers Choice poll. Gavin has been recently nominated for a Juno award, for his latest Album “All Inclusive Coma” available on Howl & Roar records.
When he’s not performing or hosting the comedic leftist podcast, Uncolonized, he can be found practicing his knitting or cheering on the Raptors. His perfect day includes watching cartoons, reading comic books and watching indie wrestling.
