He's written and performed two one-man shows (Dating with Fire and Perfect on Paper) and has been a feature stand up in some of Toronto's best rooms and clubs including Yuk Yuk's, Absolute Comedy, The Rivoli, Spirits and others.

He's since performed in NYC, LA and across Canada, and has written and performed on XM Satellite Radio, as well as a founding member of popular Toronto Sketch Comedy Troupe, The Boom. He's a producer of the Twitter Gong Show, The Lot Comedy Club, and has won so many awards it's too cheesey to mention. Garrett attributes his smart, soulless and smutty satire style from working at a funeral home, a dirt factory, and an adult video store. Follow: @GJPartyDrugs.

Russell Roy - With 15 + years as a touring stand-up comedian, Russell's tasteful brand of comedy works "between your ears", rather than "below your belt."

Having played all over Canada and the U.K. (alongside some big name acts), he's entertained for charities, universities, and corporate functions. His current charitable project hopes to raise over $ 10,000 to aid our returning veterans who find themselves homeless.Learn more about Russell here: www.cleancomedians.ca
