Ian Bagg

Ian Bagg

Comedian Ian Bagg was born in a little town of Terrace, British Columbia, in Canada, approximately 750 miles north of Vancouver. His parents Robyn and Gary, a Canadian and an Australian, gave Bagg two passports, but sadly neither of them were American. Bagg had to embark on becoming an immigrant to America. In 1996, he moved to New York City after starting in Vancouver, British Columba, in 1994, the year that the Vancouver Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup NHL playoffs. He became a regular at the Comic Strip and the Comedy Cellar in New York and immediately ended up doing three appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

In 2000, Bagg made his move to Los Angeles, but before leaving New York, he did the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, the Montreal Just for Laugh Comedy Festival, as well as stand up spots on HBO Comedy Showcase, Friday Nights, and his first small film role in Tim Robbins' film Cradle Will Rock. He was also a regular member in the sketch group The Milk Duds, but Los Angeles came a calling and he packed up and moved to Beverly Hills.

While ending up in a slew of independent movies such as The Purpose, Save the Mavericks, and Ffing Frank, he booked bit parts in sitcoms such as the Damon show, as well as doing correspondent work for MySpace.com. He hosted the Hollywood Burn on Ripe TV and his live talk show The Ian Bagg Show that took place at the Friars Club of Beverly Hills. Touring constantly through the Improv chain and other independent clubs, he has done repeat performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. His Comedy Central Presents special was responded to with much acclaim and was how he ended up dating Britney Spears for three romantic nights.

In 2007, Bagg made a second appearance at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival and filmed an HBO special called A Comics Climb with Ian Bagg. In love with the art of stand up, he was thrilled when the History Channel came knocking and asked him to be a part of the special History of the Joke. Doing shows in China, Europe, Middle East, Australia, and all over North America keeps his frequent flier points high and his knowledge of the world sharp. Al Gore described his comedy as controlled chaos, President Reagan on his death described it as an interactive delight, and Nancy agreed. Do not miss your chance of seeing Bagg live.
