So you have come learn about Ian Bagg and what he has done. Well be prepared to be amazed. Ian was born in a little town of Terrace, BC in Canada (approximately 750 miles north of Vancouver). His parents Robyn and Gary, a Canadian and an Australian, gave Ian two passports but sadly neither of them were American. Ian had to embark on becoming an immigrant to America. In 1996 he moved to New York City after starting in Vancouver, BC 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 the Connan Obrien Show.
In 2000 Ian made his move to Los Angeles, but before leaving New York he did the Aspen Comedy Festival, the Montreal Comedy Festival as well as stand up spots on HBO Showcase Comics, Friday Nights and his first small film role in Tim Robbins film The 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 on his live talk show The Ian Bagg Show that took place at the Friars Club in Beverly Hills. Touring constantly through The Improv chain and other independent clubs he has done repeat performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and Craig Ferguson. His Comedy Central Presents Ian Bagg was responded to with much acclaim and was how he ended up dating Britney Spears for three romantic nights.
In 2007 Ian made a second appearance at the Aspen Comedy Festal 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 Regan on his death described it as an interactive delight and Nancy agreed. Do not miss your chance of seeing Ian Bagg live.
