Dom Pare

Described as "one of the best new 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 taken the Canadian comedy scene by storm. With his quick wit and unconventional charm, he delights audiences and collects fans whenever he performs.

Dom’s memorable approach has landed him in the finals of both the Just For Laughs Homegrown Competition and the SiriusXM Canada’s Next Top Comic competition. Recently Dom reached the Semi-Finals of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, and Runner Up for Toronto's Best Male Stand Up.

Dom has also branched out into the comedy world and has written for The Debaters, is featured regularly on SiriusXM Radio, and has been a panelist on the George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight show.
