The comedy veteran will head a night of entertainment Saturday, May 14. at the Northbury Hotel, starting at 7:30 p.m.

For 23 years, Wilmot made his mark as an unsung hero of the UK’s stand-up comedy scene, receiving accolades and rave reviews for his unique and humourous acts. His work earned him a Barry Award in 2003 at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Now, he’s returned home to bring his personal flair to Canadian audiences.

His work includes TV credits, like “Live At The Apollo” (BBC1), “Rich Hall’s Fishing Show/Cattle Drive” (BBC4), and appearances on “Never Mind the Buzzcocks” (BBC2). He’s also hosted “Comedy Blue” on Paramount, and team captain on “Shoot the Messenger.” His film credits include a stint in “It’s All Gone Pete Tong” as Paul Kaye’s manager.

Wilmot has appeared at comedy festivals in Ireland, Scandinavian, Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and South Africa. He’s appeared several times at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. In 2016, he made his Royal Albert Hall debut in London for the Teenager Cancer Trust.
