Press Release (ePRNews.com) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Apr 10, 2016 - The Canadian Comedian has been very active as of late introducing social media followers to new comedy material and re-releasing some of his older video and audio clips. As he has been known as The Canadian Comedian for decades since his performance in the historic Hollywood Comedy Store.
The nickname actually started as The Canadian Eskimo as he was referred to by the legendary american comedian, George Wallace. Mr. Wallace was at the club that night prepping for an appearance on the Tonight Show the following night. After James Cousineau, aka The Canadian Comedian finished his set, Mr. Wallace introduced himself to a young, nervous stand up comedian and told him about being booked in for a show in the middle of winter in Saskatchewan. He stated calling James the Canadian Eskimo and others just referred to him as “That Canadian Comedian”.
Although James had performed at many venues north of the 49th, being in Hollywood and performing at historic landmarks in the comedy industry such as The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory and The Improv among others was surreal for an amateur Canadian comedian at the time. “Just to be in the same green room that my comedy heroes had sat (and I am sure partied hard for some), it was truly an honor. To meet George was an evening he still recalls to this day. George is a comedian that he still idolizes even though they have not spoken since that brief encounter. “George showed such class and respect for such an established comedian towards us little guys” says James. Other big names had been in the clubs during shows previously such as several of the Wayons’ brothers, Robin Williams and other high caliber comedians who did not take the time to acknowledge young comedians let alone talk with them and encourage them.
As life goes, he did not make it huge in Los Angeles but gained valuable life and career experience. Although James continued very irregularly in comedy due to work and raise a family (something he has no regrets of doing for the record) he has returned to performing and writing comedy here on the West Coast in Canada. He claims that the current integration of technology into our daily lives allows him to reach an audience he would never have dreamed of 25 years ago.
As he is regularly at the top of the Canadian Comedy Charts on Reverbnation and in the top 40 Worldwide on Reverbnation charts, he is in it for the long haul now. He spends his time managing his own DJ Services Company in South Surrey in addition to being named one of BC`s Top Ten Businesses (International Trade Category) last year for his ownership and management of Canadian Relocation Specialists Ltd. This company has seen great growth and will be expanding into Alberta over the next year. This allows him to take the time to spend writing material for his show, other comedians and several television pilots not yet picked up by Canadian or international networks but he is working on pitching another TV Pilot Treatment in the very near future.
If this does not keep him busy enough, he finds time to donate time and services to organizations in Canada and the United States ranging from the Bike Against Bullies ride this summer to benefit the Amanda Todd Legacy and the D W Poppy Car Show in Langley, BC. One of the largest fundraising car shows in the lower mainland on May 15, 2016. Fans are invited to come by the DJ stage at these events to say hello and share some laughs.
