Um, Who?

Hi, I’m a Canadian father, husband, son, brother, dog owner, writer, uncle, camper, basement guitar strummer and comedian. Usually “comedian” is reason people come to this site, so that’s what it’s about.

For bookers, agents or anyone wanting a ‘showbiz bio’, here it is:

Rick Currie is a thirty year veteran of the Canadian comedy scene. His whimsical style has been featured on CTV, The Comedy Network, at the Just for Laughs Festival as well as numerous appearances on CBC TV and radio programs such as: “The Debaters”, “Laugh out Loud” and the Winnipeg and Halifax Comedy Festivals.

Rick has written for many TV shows including The Scotiabank Giller Awards, “Canada 150 – A National Celebration” and the Canadian Country Music Awards. In 2018 he completed an 8 year run as a staff writer for the CBC TV show “The Rick Mercer Report” where he collected 3 Canadian Screen Awards for “Best Writing in a Variety or Sketch Comedy Program or Series”, wrote a sketch that was filmed on the International Space Station and put words into the mouths of celebrities from Prime Ministers to pop stars. He still works with the Rick Mercer team on various projects.

So that’s a bit about me, please feel free to send a note and tell me a bit about you.

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you find what you’re looking for.

Much thanks to @mitchzilbergmedia for the pic at the top of this site.

Dickory Dock

I have a CD! Rick Currie Dickory Dock is a 37 minute set recorded at Toronto’s Absolute Comedy in July 2019. It’s available at iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music and other sites or you can order a copy or download it right here, right now! I have to thank my niece Emily Rose for this …

Coach Currie

I had some fun at Tavis Maplesden’s “Bad News 2” political comedy show. The idea was to do something from the news, so I delivered Ontario’s new conservative sex ed curriculum. NOT SAFE FOR WORK! Also, this is satire, please don’t get offended.
