Fort Saskatchewan Shell Theatre – Mix 107.9 presents: Brent Butt
Brent Butt has long been considered one of the funniest people in Canada, with a career in stand-up comedy that stretches into five decades, including being voted “Best Male Stand-Up in Canada” by his peers in the profession. He also created and starred in two successful sitcoms – CORNER GAS (“Funniest Show on TV” as voted by TV Guide Readers, currently in 60 countries) and HICCUPS (multiple Leo and Writers Guild Awards). Back by popular demand, you won’t want to miss Brent’s return to Fort Saskatchewan.
In 2013 Brent was honoured with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to community and country. That same year Brent’s first feature film entitled NO CLUE and directed by Carl Bessai was released. Brent wrote, starred in and produced the film under his Sparrow Media banner. The highly anticipated feature film return to Dog River with CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE saw the entire beloved cast reunited to the delight of rabid fans and new fans alike and the movie would go on to receive a special Golden Screen Award at the 2016 Canadian Screen Awards. Re-imagined by creator and star Brent Butt, an all-new animated version of the iconic comedy franchise entitled CORNER GAS: ANIMATED debuted in 2018. The animated series immediately became the #1 rated show in the history of Canada’s The Comedy Network and a popular main stay on streamer CRAVE TV.
