Comedian Geoff MacKay

As the dreary act of joining a bureaucratic workforce bound to a stranger’s bottom line occurred to Geoff in his early twenties, he realized that earning a reliable salary, casual fridays, and morning conversations about the weather were not for him. He began wandering on to stages and telling funny anecdotes in Ottawa, Canada as a means of avoiding the vapid work vortex.

His absurd observations about toasters, math textbooks, skydiving and social convention make him a fixture in the Canadian comedy landscape. He has performed across Canada, the UK, the Culturally Divided States of America, and China.

In 2014 he was the Winner of the Canadian Comedy Awards “Funniest Person in the Ottawa Valley” contest.

Geoff is now busy performing theatre, club, festival, and corporate shows across Canada and has recently performed at the Just For Laughs Festival (Toronto), CBC’s Laugh Out Loud, the Canadian Comedy Awards, Comic Vision, Cracking Up the Capital Festival, and the North by Northeast Music Festival.
