Tragedy & Comedy

AlaskaComedy.com
At The NAACP Image Awards with a young Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon. Guess who stood out? It was surreal hangin’ with Cheech & Chong. At age 15 I could recite every word of Big Bambu & Los Cochinos We all look the same! Please always remember the night we shared (what the hell does that mean?)- Kevin James To Jerry, Thanks for Bringing me  to Alaska!    -  Louis CK

The Comedy Gods

we’re smiling. 48

hours after the

tragic fire at The

Blue Loon, the

nomadic T.J.

Miller show tore

up the Theater in

Pioneer Park last

night. Sold out

and then some

(just ask the

dozens who

gladly sat in the isles to be part of the special evening). A

lot of laughs and a lot of love. T.J. couldn’t have been

funnier and nicer as he donated a sizable amount of his

hot sauce sales to rebuilding the Blue Loon. Open Cash

Levy crushed and comedian Jamie Lissow was in town and

hung. Thanks to all who made the move of venues possible

on such short notice. Mayors Matherly and Ward, the

Police Department, Donnie and all at Pioneer Park, Rick

Mensik and

everybody who

helped cut

through the

massive red

tape in less

than one

working day. To

lifesavers

Glenner (who

also rocked),

Jonathan at

AUP,

Newsminer, KTVF, KXLR and all it’s sister stations, Amanda

Hanson, Natalie Nuebauer, Trish, The Blue Loon, Gary

Black, Anna, Ryan and Mason and ton more, thanks for

making Fairbanks such a cool place to live. And to the

people that came out to laugh and support, thanks.

It’s Finally Here! The Comedy/Documentary
View Trailer
Ian Bagg 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 Newfoundland and shot 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.” He also appeared on “Make Me Laugh”, “Showcase Comics with Louie Anderson”, “Fridays” on NBC and “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn”. Bagg was featured in several films including, Tim Robbins’ “The Cradle will Rock”, “MVP 2”, and “MXP”.  Fun fact: he’s the only known comic to have worked for Judd Apatow and NOT become a multi-billionaire. Life has been amazing for Bagg being featured on such diverse networks as the History Channel, the Food Network, the Biography Channel. Ian went to school to be an explosives engineer, but a lucky chance at an open mic made him the volatile one.  He may be in your area sooner than you think, because this manchild does over 100,000 air miles a year. He has had 2 half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents” and HBO’s “A Comics 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 and can now be found on HULU for all you cable cutters.  In 2015, Ian was a fan favorite and placed in the Top 5 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”. Additional, he did a 75 date national tour with the Last Comic Standing, performed with Gabriel Iglesias on an extensive European tour, and is currently headlining around the country. His latest digital release “Conversations” is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
