Welcome to the rickcurriest site on the web!

Rick Currie is a veteran of the Canadian comedy scene. He first took to the standup stage in 1989 and has somehow, unbelievably, made a career in Canadian showbusiness. Throughout the 90's he was a touring headliner with Yuk Yuks; performing at clubs, schools and private shows across Canada as well as taking his act to Europe, New York and LA.

In this millennium, he has been more behind the scenes as a television writer. He wrote 5 seasons of CTV's "Open Mike with Mike Bullard" and is currently a member of the writing team for CBC's "The Rick Mercer Report" - a crew that won 2013, 2015 & 2016 Canadian Screen Awards for "Best Writing in a Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series". He also wrote for the well-received 2014 Canadian Country Music Association Awards and was Host Producer for the Canada 150 New Years Eve CBC broadcast from Parliament Hill.

In the past decade he has also kept his stand up going, popping up in clubs here and there and recording broadcasts for the Winnipeg and Halifax comedy festivals. He also has recorded multiple programs for CBC Radio's "The Debaters" and "Laugh Out Loud".
