Four Great Comedians... One great cause...


Big Daddy Tazz

Often described as “one of the most talented comics in the business”, Big Daddy 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 Winnipeg Comedy Festival, for which he often multitasks as a writer, producer and performer. Tazz’s explosive gala performances at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival over the years can be seen frequently on CBC television and the Comedy Network. On April 1, 2008 Tazz shattered the standing record for continuous stand-up comedy with his 8.5-hour stand-up comedy show.
