About In the 3rd Person
Originally from Vancouver (Canada), Gavin is a stand up, writer, and actor now living in Los Angeles.
Recently selected as a 2018 TBS Team Coco Comic to Watch for the New York Comedy Festival, Gavin is an up and coming voice in comedy. In 2017, he won the SiriusXM Top Comic competition at JFL42, the largest stand up competition in Canada, earning him 25K and headline spots at all of the Just for Laughs festivals. The day after the win, his debut comedy mixtape "Premature" premiered at number 1 on the iTunes comedy charts for 4 straight days keeping Larry The Cable Guy out of the #1 spot. What a feat!
This past summer Gavin taped a TV Set at Just for Laughs Montreal for the new Katherine Ryan Stand up show that will be airing in 2019 on the Comedy Network.
Gavin has also performed at Bumbershoot, JFL42, Just For Laughs: Northwest, Halifax Comedy Festival, Hubcap Comedy Festival, Pemberton Music Festival, Oddblock Comedy Festival, and a lot more festivals that just feel like weird booked shows that have "festival" in the name.
You can occasionally catch him back in Vancouver at the Award Winning independent show he produces with Sophie Buddle, Barely Legal.
