Hey, I’m Gavin Stephens
I travel the world telling jokes, which is the next best thing to being the A-team. I also have a new album out called THE BIG EASY…
Gavin Stephens is a stand-up comedian and #blerd who skillfully balances playful irony and morbid silliness; he is known for his (really) quick wit and stream of consciousness comedic style.
Gavin has been featured in Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Austin’s SXSW, alongside comedy legends Margaret Cho, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Reggie Watts, Hannibal Buress and Marc Maron. He has been named one of the “10 Funniest Canadians” by StarTV and chosen as “Best Local Stand-up Comic” in NOW Magazine’s Readers Choice poll.
When he’s not performing or hosting the Master Race Debaiters podcast, he can be found practicing his knitting or cheering on the Raptors. His perfect day includes watching cartoons, reading comic books and watching indie wrestling.
“I’m not a terrible person, I’m actually entertaining when you get to know me”
–Gavin Stephens, 2018
“A subversive mix of silliness and substance ”
“Gavin is one of the true original voices on the Canadian comedy scene today.”
