Brent Butt

Born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan, Brent Butt discovered early that being funny was a good way to get attention.  At the age of 20 he moved to Toronto and within a couple years he was touring internationally and appearing at major festivals. His television specials quickly secured his reputation as one of the funniest people in the country, but he was also busy creating his own TV series – a sitcom called Corner Gas.  It became an instant hit with unprecedented ratings and numerous accolades including an International Emmy Award nomination. Corner Gas went on to become Canada’s #1 comedy, broadcast in over 26 countries including the US and airing for six seasons and the long awaited “CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE” which he wrote, produced and starred in.  Aside from TV and Film production, Brent continues to tour the country performing stand up as often as he can.
