This is a special part of the internet where I talk about myself in the third person to persuade people to hire me for jobs and book me on shows. It’s like LinkedIn, but just featuring Alistair, instead of a bunch of high school acquaintances wanting to “connect”.
Hello! Thanks for being here.
I’m a writer and comedian based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Before I moved here, I grew up in Port Moody, BC, and went to the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island. As a kid, I wanted to be a professional soccer player, but that fell through, so I studied Creative Writing, wrote a couple plays, got a job as a Journalist at The Martlet, then another one as a Writer / Editor / Social Media Manager at Victoria Buzz, then graduated from UVic and moved followed my dream of being a stand-up comedian in the big city (while working day jobs as a Kayak Instructor, then Busser, then Barista).
After two years of getting on stages as often as possible, taking a bunch of improv classes, and even starting my own show (Comedypants). I miraculously won the CBC Next Up Competition and performed on a televised gala at the Halifax Comedy Festival! Since then I’ve performed at JFL Northwest, The Comedy Waste Festival, Jericho Comedy’s One Night Stand, and at comedy clubs across Canada.
Despite the seeming “happily ever after” I still had a two day jobs until COVID hit, and since then I’ve split my time between collecting CERB, working as a social media manager for Blind Tiger Comedy, and wondering if stand-up will ever truly return.
So, if you’re reading this, it’s probably because I’ve applied to work for/with you. I hope we can make that happen. If you still want more info, here’s some of my comedy, here’s some of my writing, and here’s an old video of me teaching former Vancouver Whitecap Marcel De Jong how to kayak.
