Bobby Mair Stand-up Comedian / Comedy Actor

Bobby Mair is a disturbingly exciting new comedian, having graced our screens in the last season of Channel 4’s ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ and BBC3’s ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’. Most recently he was the opening act at the 2014 NME Awards and he also appeared on post Edinburgh Fringe best of highlights show, BBC3’s, ‘Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular’. His most recent assault on our TV screens shows him kissing audience members on the current series of ‘Sweat the Small Stuff’ for BBC3. Bobby made a second consecutive appearance at ‘Just For Laughs’ in July of this year, taping a Best of the Fest gala with ‘roastmaster’ Jeff Ross.

Later this year, Bobby can be seen on Series 11 of Live At The Comedy Store, produced by Open Mike Productions for Comedy Central, as well as Alex Zane’s Funny Rotten Scoundrels: Live from the Century Club as part of the London Live channel. Hosted by Alex Zane, this series brings one of London’s newest, coolest stand-up comedy nights to TV. Recorded at London’s legendary Century Club, it will feature a well-crafted mix of new, comic talent alongside well known acts.

His debut Edinburgh show ‘Obviously Adopted’ garnered rave reviews this year. A dark and honest hour of Bobby’s stand up; The Guardian called it ‘a bona fide tour de force’ and he received four stars from The Scotsman which said rightly that Bobby ‘will stamp pictures in your brain that may never go away’. Half way through the run, Jimmy Carr came to see Obviously Adopted and said Bobby is “A brilliant stand up. He’s either going to be a huge international star or the funniest homeless man ever’. He didn’t have long to rest after Edinburgh as he was invited to perform the show for a finale run at London’s prestigious Soho Theatre.

Bobby began stand up when he attended Humber College’s Comedy Writing and Performance Program in 2005, but dropped out after finding the daily confines of school stopped him from doing what he loved most, gigging constantly. He continued performing and his daring material quickly made him a strong name in the stand up community. He was awarded the ‘People’s Choice Winner’ in the prestigious Canadian comedy competition ‘Stand Up and Bite Me’ in 2009. That year he was also nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the ‘Canadian Comedy Awards’. In June 2011 he won the entire ‘Stand Up and Bite Me’ contest walking away with $10,000. That gave him the money he needed to move to the London. He left three weeks later. The Stage praised his performance by saying “Mair exudes a kind of effortless awkwardness and brings something fresh and downright disturbing. A bright, dark future surely awaits.” At the time Bobby was making money as a medical lab rat, so whilst happy he had the cash to move to the UK, he says of the win “I think I was most excited that my veins got time to heal”. He returned to Canada that same year to film a 30 minute nationally televised comedy special entitled ‘Comedy Now’. Out of 13 other stand up specials it was chosen as the series premier on CTV in March 2012.

The UK move saw Bobby gain instant notoriety as he secured a three day stint opening for his favourite comedian Doug Stanhope at Leicester Square Theatre. “He let me go on stage because I hung around for 2 days staring at him in Montreal”. Bobby is definitely one to watch, carefully.
