Hunter Collins is the world’s foremost nincompoop comedian. Some call him an “International Television Juggernaut”, others “The Draw”, and others “The King of Modesty”, but most know him as that man who keeps asking them for the rest of their food.
Originally from Montreal, this bilingual performer recently finished an Australian tour and has graced the stage at festivals such as JFL42, The Halifax Comedy Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Hunter has sexed it up big-time on shows like CTV Comedy’s Roast Battle Canada, Discovery Channel’s Disasters At Sea, Crave TV’s New Eden, CBC Gem’s True Dating Stories, CBC Radio’s The Debaters and in a surprising amount of rural bus stations. He hosted the 18th annual Canadian Comedy Awards and his last album Nincom2oop debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. His new album Hunter Collins Goes To Hell was released August 12.
Hunter is a graduate of the Comedy Writing & Performance program at Humber College where he won the Mike Myers Award, which is given to the graduate who achieves the highest levels of performance and professionalism. His cartoon Hawkeye Sucks has also taken home “best animated short” awards from both the Portland Comedy Short Film Festival and Toronto’s GeekFest Film Festival. His latest horror short When They Come is slaying the festival circuit, including a “best film” win at the Scared For Your LIIFE Film Festival in Long Island, NY.
Hunter is happily married to 30 Mormon ladies and has 96 biological children.
