Lafflines Comedy Club presents: CASEY CORBIN!!
Casey's friendly down home approach has made him a crowd pleaser over the last few years. He began performing in Ottawa, but now makes his home in front of audiences all across Canada. Since beginning in Ottawa, Casey has played every major comedy club, performed many one night venues and has played numerous theatres and universities. In 2001, Casey was nominated for "Funniest Newcomer" at the Canadian Comedy Awards. In 2002, Casey was nominated for "Funniest Newcomer" at the Canadian Comedy Awards. That wasn't a typo, it actually happened. His laid back manner and his confused but friendly delivery makes him very easy and enjoyable to watch. His observations on everyday life are thoughts we all share but never dare to express. He has worked with all the top acts in Canadian comedy and has opened headliners such as Mike MacDonald, Mitch Hedberg, Russell Peters, only to name a few.
In the fall of 2005 Casey was personally chosen by Harland Williams to open for him on his "Tasty Treats Tour" produced by Just For Laughs. He has also competed in regional homegrown competitions in 2000 & 2001 for Just For Laughs as well. This year, in 2007, Casey had the honor of performing at the 25th Anniversary of Just For Laughs in Montreal at the Homegrown Comedy Competition. Also in 2007 Casey brought his brand of comedy to the CBC Halifax Comedy Festival. His opening night gala set rocked the room and was used the next day on CBC radio to promote the fest. His taping from this festival will air on the CBC in 2008. But that wasn't it for Casey in 2007. He also taped a CTV/ Comedy Network special called Comedy Now! The special will air in 2008.
If you haven't seen Casey on stage, you might have seen him in a commercial or two. He also appears on the Comedy Network on Comedy at Club 54 and could have been seen insulting celebrities on Much Music's Stars Gone Wild. Not only that, you can also hear him on XM satellite radio on the Laugh Attack.
