What Are The Stand-Up Diaries?
For a comedian who has been homeless, adopted, dumped, fired, laid-off, broke and hungry, Trevor Dean is surprisingly sane. He is Saskatoon comedy’s version of “The Little Engine That Could”. Being often overlooked, no matter the obstacles that get in his way, he continues to pursue comedy with a greater passion than ever before!
Since starting in comedy in October of 2011, Trevor’s comedy has made appearances at Dez Reed’s Comedy Club in Saskatoon, The Comedy Grind in Regina, and charity events in Regina such as The Relay For Life and fundraisers for The Food Bank and Domestic Violence. He has also seen stage time at the iconic Pass The Hat monthly show in Regina, and at The Laugh Shop both in Saskatoon and Regina. Trevor also 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 17,000 views and read in over 115 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 over 2 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 a few 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.
Trevor Dean is single, by choice — by choice of most of the women he’s dated.
