Alistair Ogden is a Vancouver-based comedian, freelance writer and winner of CBC Comedy’s NEXT UP talent search contest. He’s the host of Comedy Pants, a monthly stand-up showcase at the Avant Garden in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Alistair was inspired to step into the world of stand-up after writing a play about a mortician who moonlights as a comic. The NEXT UP contest put his creative writing skills to the test with the social challenges. “If comedy is something you love to do, it is a great opportunity to push yourself,” says Alistair. His next step will be performing at the 2019 Ha!ifax ComedyFest.
Alistair appears at 1pm Pub Comedy and Gala of Laughs Finale.
