Bio and Credits and References


Greg Houston, from Ottawa by way of Muskoka and Scarborough, has been entertaining Canada for over 4 years. His silly observations and storytelling of daily life in the big beavertail leaves audiences always wanting more. He is mostly made of pizza and coffee but is generally a good human on this weird planet of ours. With a resume of credits like: Cracking Up The Capital Festival, Cottage Comedy Festival, Ottawa Comedy Explosion - he is sought after talent year round. He's also been producing great independent shows for over 3 years in the NCR.

Born in Scarborough, Greg Houston left the Game behind at the tender age of 4. He moved with his parents (because he felt sorry for them) to Muskoka. He was raised a cub scout and a beaver and left Muskoka as soon as possible. Ottawa is where he landed. The Nation's Capital! The Big Beaver Tail! The City Fun Forgot! Well no longer is it the city not fun with Greg Houston in it. And he's doing comedy whenever possible. He'll host and MC events, he'll do stand up anywhere, he'll keep wearing glasses because he needs those to see. 
Magazine launch parties, fashion shows, corporate comedy shows, comedy clubs, dive bars, the back of a bus - wherever there is an opportunity he'll perform for you. Just don't feed him pizza after midnight...
Smart and hip - Greg Houston wows audiences with his nuanced perspective about life and the struggle. A cleaner comedic approach gives him the ability to perform to any crowd and bring them along for a roller coaster ride of laughs. 
He also runs: a monthly Comedy Email/Open Mic (MaXXXed Out Mondays at Maxwell's), a monthly Roast show (Sunday Night Roast at Pour Boy), and hosts a weekly Bingo night at Lieutenant's Pump (Pump It Up Bingo).
Email for any and all bookings.
