Dom Pare

Described as "one of the best stand-ups around" by NOW Magazine, Dom Paré blends magnetic onstage charisma, hilarious observation, and clever writing to deliver memorable side-splitting comedy.

Originally from Ottawa, Dom has toured across Canada and the USA. With his quick wit and unconventional charm, he delights audiences and collects fans wherever he performs.

Dom’s memorable approach resulted in being hand-picked for a Kevin Hart LOL taping at the Just For Laughs Festival. He has also reached the finals of SiriusXM Canada’s Top Comic competition and the Semi-Finals of both the Laughing Skull Festival (Atlanta) and the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Lastly, Dom was runner-up for Toronto's Best Male Stand-Up and currently holds the record for most shows performed in a single week.  

Dom has written for The Debaters, is featured regularly on SiriusXM Radio, and has worked with comedians such as Howie Mandel, Andrew Schulz, Tim Meadows, Anthony Jeselnik, Hannibal Buress, Eddie Griffin, Todd Glass, Tig Notaro, Caroline Rhea and Mike Bullard.
