Taboo shattering, searingly honest, and painfully funny, Frankie “TRIXX” Agyemang is one of Canada’s rising comic stars. TRIXX , The 2013 Winner of Just for Laughs’ JFL42 Big Break competition (The Grid TO called “a brilliant set”), has opened for such stars as: Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), Damon Wayans (In Living Color), Cedric the Entertainer (The Original Kings Of Comedy), Mike Epps (The Hangover series), Aries Spears (MADtv), Sugar Sammy (HBO Canada), as well as for his good friend and mentor, Russell Peters.
Trixx has written and performed four sold out theatre shows including his last show, a two-hour solo show , TRIXX: Unspoken Words, was sold out Toronto’s Jane Mallett Theatre. He has also performed internationally including: London, Boston, Jamaica (Jamaica’s International Comedy Festival) and New York City (New York Comedy Festival) where he opened for Russell Peters. In his hometown of Toronto, you can catch Trixx headlining regularly at such top venues as the Canadian International Comedy Fest and Yuk Yuk’s, as well as performing at Kenny Robinson’s Nubian Disciples of Pryor comedy show.
TRIXX has developed a cult following with his no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners brand of comedy. Mixing boisterous commentary on topics like pop culture, relationships, music, clubbing, and sex, with acute insights on being black in Canada, TRIXX’s streetwise, boundary-pushing humour is unafraid of taking on everyone and everything in his sights.
A talented entertainer, TRIXX got his nickname through his reputation as a prankster while growing-up in Mississauga, Ontario. A former club DJ and MC, TRIXX has been an on-air personality on Toronto’s FLOW 93.5 and was a regular on MuchMusic’s Video On Trial. In 2013, he was honoured for a second time with the Comedy Award from COCA (Canadian Organization of Campus Activities). He was also a finalist in the 2009 Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh Off.
