Based on a bet made back in 2005, Newfoundland native and then English teacher Brian Aylward stepped on stage for the first time at a rowdy expatriate bar in Anyang, South Korea. Aylward went on to pioneer the active English stand-up comedy scene in South Korea, officially establishing Stand Up Seoul in 2009 and turning the country into a legitimate international comedy destination. Aylward performed hundreds of shows across Asia, taking his own brand of humour to the likes of Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Thailand, and even Myanmar. Upon returning to his native Canada in 2010, Brian went on to become the twice finalist in SiriusXM Radio’s ‘Canada’s Top Comic’ (2011/2013), be a regular fixture across Canadas Yuk Yuks comedy clubs and perform theatre tours across Newfoundland. With an enormous presence and a consummate love for making people laugh, Aylward details his deepest frustrations with the world through his razor-sharp routines and huge sack of ridiculous stories from his travels around the world. Brian is also the (unofficial) world record holder for the highest number of 10 minute sets in a single day, performing 21 times during the Haebangchon Festival in Seoul, South Korea. Festivals: Hong Kong International Comedy Festival; Haebangchon Festival; St. John’s Comedy Festival; Jakarta International Fringe Festival; Hubcap Comedy Festival; Halifax Comedy Fest; Atlantic Fringe Festival; Just For Laughs 42; Halifax Pop Explosion. Brian has recently be named as Best Standup Comic at the Canadian Comedy Awards. Catch Brian at the Pardesi Punchers and Firang Frenzy Shows!
