Native of British Columbia Ian Bagg says weather is a big reason he fell in love with his current home base of Los Angeles. “It’s blue skies all the time,” the comedian says. “For the first three years I lived out here, I wouldn’t go to a movie during the day because I couldn’t believe it wasn’t going to rain the next day.” Today Bagg has become a comedian’s comedian, drawing acclaim from fans and peers alike.
“The best way to describe my comedy is that it’s a conversation with the audience,” he says. “If you’re a person who can’t take being teased, poked or prodded, you shouldn’t show up at the show. It’s a comedy show. It’s about having fun.”
