What Are The Stand-Up Diaries?

Welcome to The Stand-Up Diaries!  You are reading the blog about one of Saskatoon’s newer amateur stand-up comedians, Trevor Dean!20130425215811(1)

I’ve recently celebrated my two year anniversary of performing stand-up comedy for audiences at numerous venues in both Saskatoon and Regina.  Monday, October 3rd of 2011 I entered a local comedy competition in the city and despite being the only one that night who had never done comedy before, I finished a respectable 6/10 based on the crowd response and judging.

I have been working with a comedy coach from Los Angeles, and we are developing a character that is self-deprecating without being offensive, racist or insulting to the audience.  It’s clean humour, as I believe you don’t need to scrape the bottom of the barrel to get laughs.

Below are a some of my YouTube videos of my sets.  The first one (in the cap) is a couple months into comedy and the one of me in the pink shirt is the set that was co-written with my comedy coach that was done in the summer of 2013.  While it’s not perfect it is kind of neat to see the growth between the videos.  Please feel free to leave your comments below, and remember that nobody likes a bully, so keep the comments respectful please!  You can also follow the blog via email, just click on the “follow” button to the right of this introduction and get the latest postings sent right to your e-mail inbox!

Thank you for clicking on The Stand-Up Diaries and be blessed today!
