Description

Canadian born, LORNE ELLIOTT has performed from Newfoundland to New York City, from Los Angeles to Australia and points in between. Lorne started performing in 1974 as a folk musician in East Coast Canada. At the same time he kept writing fiction as well as songs, monologues and one-liners. The outcome of such a training is a very special show of comedy and music, totally original, entertaining, up-lifting and foolish enough to make everybody laugh. Along with his unique and wacky performance style, it is the timelessness of his material, joined with keen observations of today's trends that make LORNE ELLIOTT's work so special.

About Lorne Elliot

LORNE ELLIOTT has performed his one-man show in theatres, universities and clubs. He opened concerts for Rodney Dangerfield in New York City and Jay Leno in Montreal. He has made regular appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival since it started in 1986: each time his segments were selected for TV Specials, thanks to their universal quality. In Canada and the U.S. he has appeared on numerous talk shows and Variety shows.

As well as being a humourist, storyteller and musician, LORNE is also a playwright. One of his plays "The Night the Racoons Went Berserk" won Best New Play Award at the Quebec Drama Festival 1983. It was produced by the Charlottetown Theatre Festival in 1986 with "Culture Shock", another comedy which has been presented regularly since then across the country; in 1989 it was staged and filmed by CBC-TV for a special Drama telecast. Part of "The Pelley Papers", a new cycle of plays he wrote was premiered at Upper Canada Playhouse (Morrisburg, Ontario) in 1995. Two recent works are "A Pitiful Ambition", and "How I Broke Into Showbiz". He also writes screenplays and TV Comedies, skits, revues, Comedy Variety shows such as "What Else Is On" and "The Lorne Elliott's Really Rather Quite Half-Decent TV Special" for CBC-TV. "Madly Off In All Directions" is LORNE ELLIOTT's own weekly CBC Radio Comedy Series. Taped in concerts across Canada it started airing in January 1996 and continued for 11 seasons.

Currently Lorne tours his one-man concert show "The Collected Mistakes" on the stages of North American Theatres.
