Canada's favourite comic at the Chilliwack Cultch March 15
Released by Rockitboy.com
rom small town Saskatchewan to the big screen, Brent Butt is one of Canada’s funniest and most successful comedians. Comedic storyteller, gifted writer, producer and actor, Brent created the hilarious “Corner Gas”.
It was an instant hit with unprecedented ratings, an International Emmy Award nomination (2004) and earning the moniker Funniest Show on TV from TV Guide readers.
The Hollywood Reporter declared, “For the first time in a generation, the highest-rated sitcom on primetime schedules here is a Canadian show, not American” (March 2005). To follow up Canada’s #1 comedy, Brent created “Hiccups”, a sitcom starring himself and Nancy Robertson winning multiple LEO Awards. Brent made the transition to the big screen as writer and star of the feature film “No Clue”.
Fans anxiously awaited the
much-anticipated return to Dog River with “Corner Gas: The Movie”,
which hit theatres December 3, 2014. Brent is a regular at Just For
Laughs as well as appearing on numerous national and international
television programs. His meteoric career was the subject of an
episode of the cultural affairs program Adrienne Clarkson Presents.
Butt was also honoured with
the Comedy Network Sir Peter Ustinov Award at the World Television
Festival (2008). Past recipients include John Cleese, Bob Newhart,
John Candy and Eugene Levy. Perhaps the most notable nod came with
the honour of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his
contributions to community and country (2013).
