Top Canadian comedian who has been described as Twin Peaks meets Cirque du Soleil. Definitely one of the zaniest shows on the market. If you like to laugh you won't want to miss this comic in action.
Wes has performed around the world and his award-winning eccentric collection of eye-popping prop tricks have earned him a world-wide reputation for a tornado-like approach to comedy. His sheer hilarity made him a regular and audience favourite on the immensely popular TV show ABC's 'America’s Funniest People'. He is as mad as they come and lovable with it.
