Rick Currie has been making Canadians laugh for over two decades now. Throughout the 90’s he was a touring headliner with Yuk Yuks, performing at clubs, schools and private shows across Canada as well as taking his act to Europe, New York and LA. He’s played at the Just for Laughs, Winnipeg and St. John Comedy Festivals and was featured on CBC’s Ha!lifax Comedy Festival in December 2012
If you haven’t seen his stand up live, you’ve probably heard many of the jokes he’s written for different CBC Radio programs including “Madly off In all Directions”, “DNTO” and “The Debaters”. Rick is currently a member of the writing team for “The Rick Mercer Report” where he shared in winning a 2013 Canadian Screen Award for “Best Writing in a Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series”.
