Ian Bagg on the air

It's time to get unplugged and get totally uncut...with comedian Ian Bagg. He's got a Canadian father and an Australian mother. Can you get any more opposite than both sides of the Planet? Combine that blood supply and the end result is an accent more outrageous than a southerner dropping his third red bull Comedian Ian Bagg was born in a little town of Terrace, British Columbia, in Canada, approximately 750 miles north of Vancouver. His parents Robyn and Gary, a Canadian and an Australian, gave Bagg two passports, but sadly neither of them were American. Bagg had to embark on becoming an immigrant to America. In 1996, he moved to New York City after starting in Vancouver, British Columba, in 1994, the year that the Vancouver Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup NHL playoffs. He became a regular at the Comic Strip and the Comedy Cellar in New York and immediately ended up doing three appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. In 2000, Bagg made his move to Los Angeles, but before leaving New York, he did the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, the Montreal Just for Laugh Comedy Festival, as well as stand up spots on HBO Comedy Showcase, Friday Nights, and his first small film role in Tim Robbins' film Cradle Will Rock. He was also a regular member in the sketch group The Milk Duds, but Los Angeles came a calling and he packed up and moved to Beverly Hills.
