Canuck Byron Bertram is one funny dude. His unique repertoire of accents and life experiences blended with self-depreciating humour is like no other. His stance on being politically correct is refreshing. He's a man that doesn't shy from pressing buttons. In our current culture where so many topics are off limits—Byron tackles them, oddly with respect. The elements of a broken brain are highlighted. Making light of the mental struggles we universally endure. Anxiety and Byron’s own personal demons take centre stage. Leading audience members on a journey with the conversations he experiences with the voices of his broken brain. Hilariously so.

    I saw this at 12:30pm in the afternoon, which is a little bit of an odd time to see a stand up comedian. He definitely did a great job considering it was an early afternoon sober crowd, but think this would be best enjoyed in the evening in more of a “night time club” setting. Still made me laugh 🙂


    If you’re into a guy making jokes at the expense of trans people, gay people, Asian people, etc…. it’s an average hour of comedy.

    If you’re not into that, skip it. Barely relevent to the program description.


    It’s not terrible, but I thought I was going to see a man speak honestly about his mental health and the mental health of men in general. Its a stand up comedy show which barely touches on the topic. When he did I was engaged. Perhaps a show better suited to a late night crowd with a clearer sell in the program on the stand up comedy aspect.
