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 Newfoundland and shot 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 Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He also appeared on Make Me Laugh, Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson, Fridays on NBC and The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.
Bagg was featured in several films including, Tim Robbins’ The Cradle will Rock, MVP 2 and MXP. Fun fact: he’s the only known comic to have worked for Judd Apatow and NOT become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg, being featured on such diverse networks as the History Channel, the Food Network, the Biography Channel and being the first-ever Canadian to meet three U.S. 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.
He has had two half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comics Climb” and has been featured in two 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 and can now be found on HULU for all you cable cutters. In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top Five on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Additional, he did a 75-date national tour with the Last Comic Standing, performed with Gabriel Iglesias on an extensive European tour and is currently headlining around the country.
