It is no secret that Trixx is known more for comedy than controversy, always hitting the stage with big laughs, leaving the audience wanting more. A finalist in The Great Canadian Laugh-Off, this performer has proven time and again that he's not only funny, but also insightful and multi-talented.
As one of Canada's next generation of up and coming comedians, Trixx is already developing quite a following via the college circuit, corporate and concert events, and comedy clubs across the nation. A naturally gifted entertainer, Trixx has been blessed with the enviable talent of being able to connect with his audience, regardless of race, age or gender.
As a regular on Much Music's Video On Trial and Stars Gone Wild, fans across the country have gotten to know and love Trixx and his hilarious trademark characters.

Charismatic and savagely funny, Trixx's talent lies in knowing exactly when and where to push boundaries and establish new limits.
