SCOTT PORTEOUS AKA HERBERT HENRIES
Scott is one of Canada's youngest comedy veterans. He’s not even 40 and has already been performing stand-up comedy for nearly 20 years. Some of Scott's accolades include performing at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, and most recently had his alter-ego featured on Canada's Got Talent and was told by Howie Mandel that he is "Winnipeg's greatest comedy export". Whether it be by his unique stunts, his solid jokes, or his awkward yet endearing personality, he is definitely one of a kind.
Frank has the unique ability to take the mundane and drag it into the absurd. Having performed in comedy clubs and indie shows across Canada for over 9 years, Frank uses his charm, quick wit and intelligent humour to connect with audiences from all walks of life. Now based in Calgary, Frank has previously produced and hosted weekly comedy shows in Toronto and Halifax, performed in festivals including Sudbury Laugh Out Loud festival, The World Series of Comedy, The Thunder Bay Comedy Festival, and was a featured act in The Human Condition Cross-Canada Comedy Tour in 2019.
Mike has been a key-player in the Toronto Comedy Scene for 6 years and has toured most of North America and Edinburgh, Scotland. He has worked with Yuk Yuks, Absolute Comedy, Rick Bronson’s The Comic Strip, and runs his acclaimed monthly show; The Stand-Up Show with Mike Payne at the world famous Comedy Bar. Mike has also appeared in festivals including The Cottage Country Comedy Festival, The Dirty Bird Comedy Festival, The Brantford Comedy Festival and was a winner of the Gemini Comedy Festival alongside Al Val. Mike is most commonly recognized from Burger King’s Impossible Whopper commercial (National Campaign, 2021) as the “that’s pretty good” guy.
