Brent Butt Keynote

Corner Gas Animated's Brent Butt will be wrapping up the 15th anniversary edition of TAC !

Brent Butt was raised in a tiny, rural farming community. From a young age, Brent was determined to pursue a career in stand-up comedy and he has been on the road performing live shows since his early 20’s.

After many years touring, Brent started thinking about a TV series idea, CORNER GAS, set in the fictional town of Dog River with an odd bunch of archetypal characters. The series went on to become Canada’s #1 comedy for six seasons.

CORNER GAS ANIMATED, an all-new animated version of the iconic comedy franchise re-imagined by Brent and launched in 2018, became the highest rated show in the history of The Comedy Network.


Open to all OIAF passholders.
