Ted Morris / Standup comics, comedians and comedy writers from the finest talent roster in Canada
Ted Morris always looks like he's having the most fun in the room when he's on stage. His intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile lets us all know that our slightly warped thoughts are just fine.
Born in Ottawa and now making his home in Toronto, Ted discovered his love of stand-up while getting his degree in veterinary medicine. While he still spends some time working as small animal vet, his comedy career is taking off and he has found that it's much more gratifying to "kill" on stage. He's been called "fresh faced and hilarious" and "a real gem" by Now Magazine, and slightly ruder things by strangers in the street.
Ted currently tours Canada working for Yuk Yuk’s, the largest chain of comedy clubs in the country. A favourite of the festival circuit, he has performed at the "We're Funny That Way" (Toronto), London, Halifax, Winnipeg, Glasgow, Sudbury, Out of Bounds (Austin, Texas), Laughing Devil (Atlanta, Georgia), North Carolina Comedy Arts, NXNE (Toronto) and JFL42 (Toronto) Comedy Festivals, and can be heard around the world on SiriusXM and CBC Radio’s The Debaters and LOL.
His TV appearances include two stand-up specials for Pridevision TV (as both a performer and producer), The Toronto Show, The Comedy Network's Canadian Comedy Shorts, MuchMoreMusic's Heat Meter, The Smart Woman's Survival Guide and The Halifax Comedy Festival on CBC. Ted's hour-long Comedy Now! stand-up special on The Comedy Network (Canada) debuted in 2012. His web series The Giant Comes Out is currently being developed into a TV series. He is also a nationally syndicated radio columnist sharing his vet wisdom across Canada on CBC Radio, is the featured vet on the international magazine show Steven and Chris airing on CBC and runs a monthly phone-in veterinary advice show on Zoomer Radio.
