Brent Butt

Born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan, BRENT BUTT discovered early that being funny was a good
way to get attention. Brent honed his comedy in school and at the age of 20 moved to the city to
pursue a career in stand-up. Within months he was headlining top clubs in Toronto, and within a
couple years he was touring internationally and appearing at major festivals. His television
specials quickly secured his reputation as one of the funniest people in the country, but he was
also busy creating his own TV series – a sitcom called CORNER GAS. It became an instant hit
with unprecedented ratings and numerous accolades including an International Emmy Award
nomination, and was named "Funniest Show on TV" by TV Guide readers. Canada’s favourite
comedy is now shown in over 26 countries including the US. The final episode of the series was
β€œthe highest (rated) on record for a Canadian scripted series since it began keeping track in
1994” Brent’s follow-up series HICCUPS ran for two seasons. In 2013 Brent was honoured
with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to community and
country. That same year Brent’s first feature film entitled NO CLUE and directed by Carl
Bessai was released. Brent wrote, starred in and produced the film under his Sparrow Media
banner. The highly anticipated feature film return to Dog River with CORNER GAS: THE
MOVIE saw the entire beloved cast reunited to the delight of rabid fans and new fans alike and
the movie would go on to receive a special Golden Screen Award at the 2016 Canadian Screen
Awards. Re-imagined by creator and star Brent Butt, an all-new animated version of the iconic comedy
franchise entitled CORNER GAS: ANIMATED debuted in 2018. The animated series premiered
immediately becoming the #1 rated show in the history of Canada’s The Comedy Network and a popular
main stay on streamer CRAVE TV. So successful in fact, the animated series is now also streaming in
the United States on Amazon’s free streaming service IMDB TV and a French language version has been
launched. Brent and the series have won multiple Canadian Screen Awards and Leo Awards including
Best Animated Program, Best Performance and Best Animation Writing so far.
With Brent performing, writing, executive producing, and even directing, there is little doubt the
future holds many untold achievements for one of Canada’s brightest stars.
