Schaumburg, IL (March 15, 2017) – Ian started his comedy career in his native country, Canada. He proceeded to do all the show business things that every successful Canadian entertainer does. He went to a “Hockey Night in Canada” game on a Saturday night, performed at the “Montreal Comedy Festival,” kissed a fish in New Foundland and a “Comedy Now” special on CTV. So what does a Canadian do when he has done it all? He boards a train to New York City, lives in a youth hostel and ends up on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” It is not always fun and games. He was forced to do “Make Me Laugh,” “Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson,” “Fridays” on NBC and the “Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.”
Bagg was featured in Tim Robbins’ “The Cradle will Rock,” “MVP 2” and “MXP.” Life has been amazing for Bagg being on such diverse networks as the History Channel, the Food Network, the Biography Channel and being the first ever Canadian to meet three US presidents — Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter and George Bush…although only one was in the White House at the time, he met one on a plane and the other at a hockey practice.
He has had 2 half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comic’s Climb” and has been featured in 2 seasons of “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution” on Comedy Central. His latest one-hour special, “Ian Bagg: Getting to F**king Know You” aired on Showtime. In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top 5 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” “Any way you get to know him you will remember him.” ~ Ronald Reagan
