Comedian, Podcast Host
Mike Ward is an award winning bilingual comedian based out of Montreal, Canada. He has headlined every major comedy festival in the world. With sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal’s Just For Laughs, Toronto’s JFL 42, and the Montreux Comedy Festival.
Despite being too dirty for traditional television his stand-up has aired on tv in more than 20 countries; including Showtime (USA), HBO (Canada), France 2 (France), Comedy Central (South Africa), RTS Deux (Switzerland) & Network 10 (Australia) just to name a few.
On stage he talks about pedophilia, famine, the disabled, suicide and other upbeat topics. In an era of political correctness, he’s irreverent, offensive and downright impolite…and people love him for it !
His French-language podcast just celebrated its 12 millionth download, making it the most popular French-language comedy podcast in history. He also has an English podcast on Compound Media, 2 Drink Minimum, with new episodes every Friday at 4pm.
