With over half of his life dedicated to performing comedy, it’s easy to see why the stage seems like such a natural environment to Brendan McKeigan. After performing and teaching improv for seven years, Brendan made the move to stand up comedy in 2003 and has never looked back; Appearing on XM Satellite radio, Much More Music, CBC’s Laugh Out Loud, Bite TV, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, and more. He has performed at the 1000 Islands Comedy Festival, The LOL Sudbury Comedy Festival to sold out audiences and standing ovations three years in a row, as well as The Cracking Up The Capital Festival’s closing gala for 2300 people at the National Arts Centre . Brendan’s act also won him a performance at Montreal’s coveted Just For Laughs, “Homegrown Comic Competition,” where he received rave reviews from the audience and his peers alike. He also filmed his first comedy special in November of 2013 called, “Make It A Double.” Brendan’s intriguing high energy, laid back, free-flowing style with clever story telling and creative analogies prove why he’s more observant than your creepy neighbour, why people are talking about his impressive talent, and why he isn’t the “next anyone”, he’s the first Brendan McKeigan.
Born in Dearborn, MI, just outside of Detroit. Scott started doing comedy in his first year of college. He took on a partner, entered a contest and came in dead last. It took another 10 years to get back on the stage. After 25 brutal winters in Michigan Scott moved to Houston, Texas and began his way back on the stage with stand-up comedy. Well, as it is stated in the comic rule book, you need to wait tables before you can start doing comedy full time which he did. When the restaurant closed its doors Scott figured this was a good jumping off point, and so started doing comedy full time.
