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!
For a comedian who has been homeless, adopted, dumped, fired, laid-off, broke and hungry, Trevor Dean is surprisingly sane.
Since starting in comedy in the Summer of 2011, Trevor’s comedy has made appearances at The Laugh Shop in Saskatoon, The Comedy Grind & Pass The Hat in Regina, and charity events such as The Relay For Life and fundraisers for The Food Bank and Domestic Violence. Trevor placed first in a preliminary night of a competition of Saskatoon’s Newest Comics Competition in 2012 after only a few months in comedy.
He also pens The Stand-Up Diaries, which chronicle his experiences within the comedy world that have amassed over 10,000 views and read in over 70 countries. Yes, Trevor actually got out his old elementary school atlas to make sure these countries really did exist.
The majority of Trevor’s good-natured material focuses pokes fun at himself.
Where most people still don’t think you can learn comedy, for the last 1 ½ years he has received coaching from Top L.A. Comedy Coach and Tonight Show Writer Jerry Corley at The Stand-Up Comedy Clinic based out of Burbank, California via Skype. His writing and performing are growing by leaps and bounds with each set, thus dispelling the notion that you’re either born to do comedy or you aren’t.
Despite only 3 years in the comedy scene, Trevor Dean has been invited to do spots at the World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA and Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank, CA.
