Brent Butt is the creator of one of Canada's most successful television shows of all time: Corner Gas. He’s also a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, cartoonist and now a singer among many other things.
He hails from Tisdale, Saskatchewan, Canada and started doing stand-up comedy in the late 80’s and has become a staple in the Canadian comedy due to his wildly popular show: Corner Gas.
Corner Gas ran for 6 seasons with ratings hitting a viewership in the millions every episode with a record breaking 3.1 million viewers on the shows final go. Corner Gas became the first Canadian show to be the most watched show in Canada, because before that, American shows would always beat out our own.
The franchise also released Corner Gas: The Movie in 2014 and you can catch Corner Gas Animated in its third season right now. After winning Gemini Awards, Canadian Comedy Awards and much more, re-runs of the show still air and you can watch it on Crave TV, Amazon Prime and CTV.
Needless to say, Brent Butt is a national treasure and encompasses everything everyone loves about Canada.
Check out his first Christmas single "Everyone Can Sing at Christmas" on all streaming platforms!
