“Houston is definitely funny - great laughs.” -New Ottawa Critics.
“Houston earns many laughs with his self-deprecating sense of humour.” -On Stage.

Greg Houston, from Ottawa by way of small town Ontario, has been entertaining Canada for over 5 years. His silly observations and storytelling style brings the big beavertail to life and always leaves audiences wanting more. Just don't feed him pizza after midnight... 
He was the winner of the 'Funniest of the Fringe' 2017 Kingston and Ottawa Comedy Best Newcomer 2012 awards. With a resume of credits like: Alterna Crack Up Festival, Cottage Comedy Festival, Crom Comedy Festival; and chosen to open for Tig Notaro, Doug Stanhope, and Mike MacDonald - he's a talented silly boy that is sought after year round. 

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.
