Big Daddy Tazz

Often described as "one of the most talented comics in the business," Tazz has been delighting crowds at fundraisers, corporate events, festivals and on television for more than a decade and a half. Known as the "Bi-Polar Buddha", Tazz is equal parts comedian and motivational speaker, who likes to enlighten, educate and inspire. As a result, his one-man shows have drawn rave reviews and standing ovations from coast-to-coast. Tazz's many national festival appearances have included the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, the Moncton Comedy Festival and the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival, for which he annually multi-tasks as a writer, producer and performer. Tazz's explosive Gala performances at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Comedy Now can be seen frequently on CBC television and the Comedy Network. And in latest news, Big Daddy Tazz pulled off the mother of all stand-up comedy routines -- 8 hours, 30 minutes -- and earned himself a new nickname in the process: Marathon Man of Mirth, dethroning Dane Cook, the Hollywood comic who set the record (6 hours, 12 minutes).
