“Manitoba Veterinarians will be talking about Tazz’s performance for years to come! I’ve planned a few conferences in my career and I’ve never yet seen delegates respond to an entertainer with a standing ovation! Tazz was bang on with his read of the room and he set the mood for an evening of fun – an event planner’s dream!”

CBC’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival review
“It was so nice to have an evening where everyone could laugh and no one felt uncomfortable. Tazz proves that you can get laughs without being foul or offensive”
It’s incredible to watch a comedian as in the zone as Big Daddy Tazz was on Friday evening. The material is funny and well honed – and Tazz is so calm and focused he really does seem Buddha-like.
The show begins with the disembodied voice of Tazz reading from his diary. In some of the entries Tazz is suicidal, and in others he’s maniacally happy. You see, in real life, Tazz is bi-polar. Now, if I you are thinking Oh yuck. I prefer my comedy without a side-order of embarrassing human misery, thank you very much and hold on.
Tazz is at the peak of his game. But there’s something very modest and un-swaggering about his act. He’s in effortless control and his observations of Canadian life have a spark that takes them a little beyond more pedestrian standup fare. Example: Value Village it smells sort of like grandma’s house if she was cooking a skunk. He’s also very adaptive. There were kids in the front row so he made a game of editing profanity from his routine – to hilarious effect.
In the insecure boys club of standup comedy, it’s rare to find an act that successfully connects with an audience in more than a modern-life-ridiculous kind of way. But, Tazz closes with inspirational quotes from Judy Garland and Mother Teresa and he isn’t being ironic. Somehow, it works.
