Ian Bagg started his comedy career in his native country, Canada. He proceeded to do all the show business things that every successful Canadian entertainer does. He went to a “Hockey Night in Canada” game on a Saturday night, performed at the “Montreal Comedy Festival,” kissed a fish in New Foundland and a “Comedy Now” special on CTV. So what does a Canadian do when he has done it all? He boards a train to New York City, lives in a youth hostel and ends up on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson” and “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” It is not always fun and games. He was forced to do “Make Me Laugh,” “Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson,” “Fridays” on NBC and the “Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.”

Bagg was featured in Tim Robbins’ “The Cradle will Rock,” “MVP 2,” and “MXP.” Fun fact: he’s the the only known comic to have worked for Judd Apatow and NOT become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg being on such diverse networks as the History Channel, the Food Network, the Biography Channel and being the first ever Canadian to meet three US presidents — Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter and George Bush…although only one was in the White House at the time, he met one on a plane and the other at a hockey practice.

While working red carpet interviews, Ian has pissed off Brad Pitt, been hit with a champagne bottle and asked for chocolate covered pretzels by Alec Baldwin. You probably wonder what kind of man does this without imploding? The answer is a man whose dog survived a three- story fall and who’s been known to think he is twelve, but may actually be twenty-nine or seventy-two.

Ian went to school to be an explosives engineer, but a lucky chance at an open mic made him the volatile one. He may be in your area sooner than you think, because this manchild does over 100,000 air miles a year. He has had 2 half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comics Climb” and has been featured in 2 seasons of “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution” on Comedy Central. His latest one-hour special, “Ian Bagg: Getting to F**king Know You” aired on Showtime. In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top 5 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” He is currently on a 70+ date national tour with the Top 5 Last Comic Standing finalists.

“Anyway you get to know him you will remember him” ~ Ronald Reagan

Praise for Ian Bagg and his CD “It Takes A Village” «Because he’s a master at crowd work, no two Bagg shows are completely alike.» — Straight.com — Vancouver

The new album from Ian Bagg, “It Takes A Village” doesn’t just fly by. It flies by. It’s wondrous minutes of laughter, audience interaction.. .that guarantee your cheeks will be sore from chuckling aloud. – Ed, Comedy-reviews.com

“It Takes a Village” shows a talented performer with ample crowdwork skills, a likable human being with a clear, quick-thinking head on his shoulders. – Austin L. Ray, thespittake.com

“It Takes a Village” achieves a communal circus... entirely unique material erupts from the crowd’s response to his many ploys. – Chris Milea, Stage Time Magazine
