My name is Tom Bassett and I am the owner of 'BIG DOG COMEDY'.
I have been doing Comedy for about five years but I am from a small northern town and it was hard to get started as a Comic up here.
Stage time was hard to come by and I would travel to Prince George from Quesnel to do free spots and get home at midnight and be up for work at four thirty in the morning.
Thats paying your dues, to learn the craft better and to learn to speak in front of people I joined a Toastmasters club and was named the best speaker in our club for three years straight.
This taught me a lot about how to prepare for shows and also gave me a better view on doing a clean set when I have to. On my travels to Calgary and Vancouver to do open Mic shows I met and worked with some great Comics who told me the only way I was going to make it is to live in the city. Well I am a small town kind of guy and I cant pack everything up and go do the starving artist thing. So they said ' do your own shows'. I had already set up a few shows for 'YUK YUKS ' in Quesnel and they did not have a show here anymore so I got a bar to do shows and formed my own company 'BIG DOG COMEDY' The shows in Quesnel took off and went from one show a month to a full weekend and I had to move to a bigger Venue. I have made it my goal to bring big names in Comedy to small towns.  Lets face it , these days you need more than a big screen T.V. and a hockey game to bring a crowd to the bar so 'BIG DOG COMEDY ' has set out to do the smaller towns. I have had shows in Vanderhoof, Prince George, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Lone Butte, Kamloops, Grindrod and Armstrong. I have worked in a Sawmill for thirty nine years and when they told us the mill is closing I knew it was time to take a run at this. So far I have enjoyed bringing the big names to the smaller towns and they enjoy it too. We do Bars, dinners or whatever event you have. If you need a Comic, I can hook you up. Give 'BIG DOG COMEDY'  a try , you will not be disappointed.

Tom has been doing comedy and shocking audiences out in Calgary, Down in Vancouver and several points north. He now has his own show in his home town and is looking forward to bringing you first class comics from all over!

If you would like to pack the house, Big Dog Comedy can help.
