Jean Paul / Standup comics, comedians and comedy writers from the finest talent roster in Canada
Trinidadian-born, Brooklyn raised and currently resident of Toronto, comedian Jean Paul has always had an innate sense of humour. Maybe it’s because of his curious nature; maybe it’s because of his light-hearted view on life. Whatever the reason, Jean knew at an early age that a career in comedy was right for him. Since then, Jean has traveled extensively across Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, South Africa and the U.K., performing at such legendary venues as the Apollo in New York, the Comedy Store in London, and at Place des Arts in Montreal. No stranger to the festival circuit, Jean has performed at Just For Laughs, Halifax and Winnipeg comedy Festivals and among other credits has written for and toured with Russell Peters.
He has also proven his talent in on TV and film. He has conquered television as a correspondent on Phat TV, portrayed a wide assortment of characters in the CBC special Thick and Thin, appeared multiple times as a guest on the CBC’s Strombo Show and on CTV’s A Russell Peters Christmas Special. He also played the popular Fluff E the Hip-Hop Bunny, on the Comedy Network’s Buzz Show, and is featured in Home Again and A Universal Language.
"Savage wit and spontaneous combustion combine into an explosive comedic barrage. This cat is fearless. In terms of any kind of act, he works without a net. He is so freewheeling, it's almost psychedelic." - Daryl Jung, NOW Magazine, Toronto
"I just wanted to let you know that Jean Paul did a STELLAR job at our Holiday Party on Friday night! Numerous guests went up to him afterward to let him know how much they enjoyed it. Our office managing partner was also very happy about his comedy performance, she said he was “right on the mark”. I imagine you’ll be hearing from us again to make another comedy booking in the future."
