Doug Mutai Kenyan Comedian in Calgary
AFTER DINNER COMEDIAN
Doug Mutai Bio
Doug Mutai is stand up comedian primarily based in Calgary, Alberta….when Doug Mutai joined post-secondary a few years ago, stand-up comedy was not in the list of the extra curriculum activities he would be choosing from. The Kenyan native enrolled in cross-country running just like any Kenyan would do, the sport he would be most familiar with. After two seasons he gave up the sport to the pros and instead focused his energy on his business studies and also Facebook studies, such a thing exists.
It didn’t take long however for him to get introduced into the world of stand up and there has been no stopping since then. Doug’s stage performance is filled with passion and charisma.
In 2012 Doug’s performance caught the attention of the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival where he was invited and performed at the opening and the Best of Fest gala, he has since gone on to perform at the Calgary Folk Music Festival and the CBC Halifax Comedy Festival.
Borrowing from an array of influences up to and including an early introduction to theatre and spoken word poetry, there is an in-depth element to his style of writing and stage performance itself. That and there is no doubt that his African upbringing is well sprinkled throughout his bits. So just in case you are wondering if you have anything in common with a Kenyan… the answer might surprise you.
