Charles Demers is an author, stand-up comedian and adjunct professor of creative writing at The University of British Columbia. His collection of essays, Vancouver Special, was shortlisted for the Hubert Evans BC Book Prize for Non-Fiction. He is also the author of a novel, The Prescription Errors. His newest book (2015) is The Horrors: An A to Z of Funny Thoughts on Awful Things. He has performed for national television and radio audiences and at the Just for Laughs Festival. He is one of the most frequently returning stars of CBC Radio’s smash-hit comedy show The Debaters.

By combining political humor that's never shrill or self-righteous with broader jokes that are never thoughtless, Charles is equally well received, whether delivering jokes in a sports bar or emceeing a gala for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.  Not many people have both on their resume.

He was also a co-host of CityTV's subversive comedy news panel 'The Citynews List,' along with his sketch comedy partner Paul Bae. It is the act that Robin Williams called "the future of comedy."

Charles is involved in a hit web series called ‘Will Power.’ a 5-episode comedy about two brothers whose father has just passed away. 

‘Leftovers’ is a show created by Charles Demers and Marcus Youssef. In the last thirty years, the richest 1% has accumulated more wealth than in any other time in modern history. In Leftovers, the West Coast’s funniest political comic Charles Demers tears out his hair trying to figure out why it’s so damn hard for us to imagine anything else. This show has been performed at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival as well at The Shadbolt Centre. Next performances will be with PUSH International Performing Arts Festival at The Cultch, January 2016.
