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.

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 and can now be found on HULU for all you cable cutters. In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top 5 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” He recently wrapped a 75 date national tour with the Top 5 Last Comic Standing finalists and is currently headlining his own tour around the country.

It would take too long to cite all of Doug’s credits, but here’s a small sampling: He has his own documentary called “Super High Me” based on a joke from his standup act. It’s available on DVD! How does a little show called NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” grab you? Fact: he finished top six in the 2007 season, no big deal.

Doug is a series regular on VH1‘s “Best Week Ever.” He also makes recurring appearances on ABC’sJimmy Kimmel Live.” His second “Comedy Central Presents” half-hour special premiered in January 2009.

He had the nerve to hit on Jennifer Aniston on the classic sitcom “Friends,” is a character on “The Sarah Silverman Program,” and oops, almost forgot, got Larry David in a headlock on HBO‘s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” If that’s not enough for you, he’s a creator/writer/star of “The Marijuana-Logues“, a show that’s been a hit (small pun intended) in clubs and theatres from Los Angeles to New York — and drew a bongload of rave reviews. Now there’s a CD, also called The Marijuana-Logues, and a book, “The Marijuana-Logues: Everything About Pot That We Could Remember.”

In 2006, High Times Magazine, named Doug “Stoner of the Year.” He expresses his love of movies on a regular basis on his “I Love Movies” podcasts (available on iTunes). Enough about Doug Benson already!
