Charlie Demers is a Juno-nominated stand-up comedian, BC Book Prize-nominated author, & co-star of two Emmy-winning Netflix animated series, Beat Bugs and The Last Kids on Earth.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Demers is a regular performer on CBC Radio One’s The Debaters, and co-host of Citytv’s comedic panel show The Citynews List in Vancouver. In 2005, he was the judges’ choice for Vancouver’s funniest new comic; since then he has been featured on national radio, in print, as well as in festivals and live venues across Canada and the Pacific Northwest and with Paul Bae as the sketch duo “Bucket”–the act Robin Williams called “the future of comedy.” In 2018 his album ‘Fatherland” was nominated for a Juno Comedy Award. This was the first time in 34 years Juno had announced comedy nominations. Charlie Demers has published numerous books, including The Prescription Errors, Vancouver Special, The Horrors, Property Values, and Primary Obsessions.
