The IMPROV Comedy Line up

OCTOBER 15th – 18th
jeremy hotzOne of the most unique stand-up comics working today, Canadian born Jeremy Hotz has quickly become a proven international success. With stellar performances at the Montreal Comedy Festival: Just For Laughs and his sold out Canadian theater tour "What A Miserable Tour This Is....”, as well as performances all over the United States, Europe and Australia, Jeremy continues to grab audiences with his completely original and confused, yet very astute, observational comedy. Recognition came quick, as American studios and networks showed interest and Jeremy was offered his first of many major development deals. Another highlight for Jeremy was his debut appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, followed by five appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Jeremy has also appeared on Comedy Central with his own half hour special, and was on MTV’s Half Hour Comedy Hour.   Jeremy filmed a one hour TV special "What A Miserable Show This Is..." for CTV, and his DVD “What a Miserable  DVD This Is...”  is a hit.  Beyond his stand-up comic merits, Jeremy is also a talented actor who will be appearing in the fourth season of HBO Canada’s Call Me Fitz, and has appeared in the feature films My Favorite Martian (with Elizabeth Hurley) and Speed 2 (with Sandra Bullock and Jason Patric). He starred in the four-part mini-series Married Life on Comedy Central and was nominated for a Gemini Award for the CBC’s "OH CANA-DUH".  He was the recipient of a Gemini Award for “Best Performance in a Comedy Show or Series” for his work in the celebrated series "The Newsroom" on the CBC and PBS in America.  Jeremy was also a staff writer and performer on the critically acclaimed "The Jon Stewart Show" (Paramount), and received a Gemini nomination for “Best Writing in Comedy or Variety Show or Series” for his half hour comedy special, "Whatever Happened to Jeremy Hotz?"
