Kurtis Conner

Comedian & YouTube Creator

Kurtis Conner is a Toronto based sell-out performer, podcaster, and global YouTube sensation! After studying comedy writing and performance in Toronto, Conner quickly found an audience on Vine which he later migrated to YouTube.

An established force on Youtube, amassing over 4.6 MM subscribers, 700 MM + total views, and regularly landing videos on the trending list, Kurtis is a born and bred comedian. Entering his 10th year of stand up in 2023, his accolades stretch far past his Youtube success. In 2022, Kurtis toured North America, performing in 55+ major markets and selling over 125,000 tickets at theaters across the country. While most performers would take some time off after touring for over 6 months, Kurtis is not most performers. In 2023, he embarked on his first international tour across Australia and New Zealand. His first time in either country, Kurtis did not disappoint, selling out shows across both nations.

Kurtis fulfilled a proper homecoming at The Danforth Music Hall where he recently filmed his upcoming comedy special, set to be released later this year. He also performed at Just For Laughs Montreal in July 2023!
