The Host of Train Wreck Open Mic Comedy
Rob Balsdon is originally from Ontario where he attended an arts high school for acting but when his report cards all said the same thing, “behaviour sometimes distracts others,” he knew comedy was calling.
Now making his home in BC Rob also worked in radio as both a producer and announcer. Whether he is on-air or on stage Rob combines a brutal honesty with a likable innocence and a very quick wit; beware, his contagious smile! Rob has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Canadian comedy including “The Harley Guy” Herb Dixon, Gerry Dee from The Score and Last Comic Standing fame and Canadian comedy legend Mike MacDonald. Recently Rob was lucky enough to work with one of his idols when he opened for film star and SNL alum Norm MacDonald!
From life’s guilty pleasures like television and video games to sports, school and relationships Rob’s been there and done it wrong, and he’s been sharing his stories all across Canada for the past 9 years. Rob always puts on a high energy and thought provoking show that will bring audiences together and truly make them think.
