Jason Canning

Born in Hillingdon, UK, Jason’s life was to take a major turn when he landed a sales job with NEC. And hated it. He knew that his calling was for something other than high end projectors, and made the switch to comedy. Soon after, he was handpicked to be the face and character of the Paramount Comedy Channel, chosen not only for a remarkable resemblance to Jim Carrey, but also for his uncanny ability to reproduce Carrey’s physical antics. 

An instant hit, Jason was soon presenting on the BBC,  Disney Channel, ITV, and even compered an event at the legendary Royal Albert Hall

A move to L.A. took Jason further into stand-up comedy, and also into the arms of E! Entertainment where he became the narrator of their hit shows Extreme Close-Up and Gone Bad. He also did a tour of duty as the voice of BBC America which earned him a Silver Telly Award. 

Riding on his improv chops, honed at LA’s UCB Theater, Jason was cast in HBO’s critically acclaimed animated comedy series The Life & Times of Tim, starring alongside Alfred Molina. Jason continued to be paired with iconic talents when he was called in to bring comic relief to the Nickelodeon series Hero Factory alongside Mark Hamil and Henry Winkler.

Headlining comedy shows across North America have earned Jason an avid following, as well as a Fresh Faces win at L.A.’s premiere comedy club, The Laugh Factory, where Jason also performed in their record breaking Longest running comedy show which lasted an incredible 80 hours! Both Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live, Weeds) and Tom Arnold (former husband of Roseanne Barr) brought Jason in to feature in their shows in LA, also held at The Laugh Factory.

Jason’s veteran skills as an MC made him top choice to host a prestigious event at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood.

In 2012 Jason’s quick wit and comedic timing earned him a lead role in the hilarious comedy pilot TwitWits, shot in Hollywood. 

Jason has recently brought his brand of clean, physical comedy back to the UK and has already been delighting audiences on the home front!
