Engaging, observant, and energetic, Graham Chittenden is one of Canada’s most exciting comedic performers. A familiar face at the Just For Laughs festival, Chittenden has shared tours and stages with Howie Mandel, Andrea Martin, and Louie Anderson, to name a few.

Chittenden has toured under the Just For Laughs banner from Bermuda to Vancouver Island. He has also written for hit programs such as CBC’s Mr. D, The Debaters, and The Canadian Screen Awards. He currently travels as a writer for the critically acclaimed CBC show Still Standing, which seeks out small towns with interesting challenges and turns the stories of the most influential townspeople into a comedic narrative that is positive, heartwarming, and hilarious. His work has earned him four Canadian Screen Awards and a Writers Guild of Canada Award.
In addition to Chittenden’s numerous television appearances as part of Just For Laughs, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, and as a host for MTV Canada, he also stars in several comedy specials, including his most recent Graham Chittenden: Reluctant Adult, streaming on Crave.
Hosting a gala, celebrating a milestone, or bringing some levity after a long day of work, Chittenden always leaves his audience laughing, whether in-person or virtually. During the pandemic, he successfully pivoted to an online format, hosting and performing comedy all over Canada without leaving his house.
