On Friday the 13th in April, the town of Glenboro held its second
Ladies Night'. The highlight of the evening was guest entertainer Big Daddy Tazz from Winnipeg. The popular entertainer put on a good show and had everyone laughing. (ED TORZ/FOR THE SUN)
Some background from Bid Daddy Tazz’s website:
After 30 years of denying he had the mental illnesses that were controlling his life, Tazz realized that being manic-depressive, attention deficit, and dyslexic could either destroy or enhance his life… it was his choice.
Often described as "one of the most talented comics in the business," Tazz has been delighting crowds at fundraisers, corporate events, festivals and on television for more than a decade and a half.
Known as the "Bi-Polar Buddha", Tazz is equal parts comedian, and motivational speaker who likes to enlighten, educate and inspire. As a result, his one-man shows have drawn rave reviews and standing ovations from coast-to-coast. His main topics are depression-suicide (in schools and the workplace), bullying (in schools and the workplace) and customer service.
His many national festival appearances have included the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, the Moncton Comedy Festival and the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival, for which he annually multi-tasks as a writer, producer and performer.
Tazz’ explosive Gala performances at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival over the years can be seen frequently on CBC television and the Comedy Network.
