One of the most unique stand-up comics working today, Canadian born Jeremy Hotz is a proven international success. With stellar performances at the Montreal Comedy Festival: Just for Laughs and his sold out Canadian theater tours, as well as performances all over the United States, Europe and Australia, Jeremy continues to grab audiences with his completely original and confused, yet very astute, observational comedy.
In 1997, he performed at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and received a standing ovation after his debut performance at the festival’s prestigious television gala. He returned to the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005 (voted Best Performer by the “Globe and Mail”), 2007, 2008 (Chosen as Best in Fest by the “Montreal Gazette”) 2011-2013 where he was one of the hosts for the Just for Laughs TV series for The Comedy Network and 2016 where he did his own one man show at the Olympic Theatre.
Another highlight for Jeremy was his debut appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” followed by five appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Jeremy has also appeared on Comedy Central with his own standup special and filmed two others; “What A Miserable Show This Is...” and “Some of the Best of Jeremy Hotz” for CTV. Jeremy is planning a new one hour comedy special, “Profoundly Disappointed.”
Beyond his stand-up comic merits, Jeremy is also a talented actor who appeared as a regular in the final season of HBO Canada’s “Call Me Fitz,” as a guest star on “Unusually Thicke” and Jay Leno’s guest on the highly successful “Jay Leno’s Garage” that aired on CNBC in July. Hotz has also appeared in the feature films “My Favorite Martian” (with Elizabeth Hurley) and “Speed 2” (with Sandra Bullock). He starred in the four-part mini-series “Married Life” on Comedy Central and was nominated for a Gemini Award for his special “OH CANA-DUH” on CBC. He was the recipient of a Gemini Award for “Best Performance in a Comedy Show or Series” for his work in the celebrated series “The Newsroom” on CBC and PBS.
Last year Jeremy toured his 5th national solo show; Jeremy Hotz – International Man of Misery. Accompanied by Shackleton, a long-haired Chihuahua and emotional support animal that suffers from anxiety. It was his most successful tour to date. He is currently in development at both Lionsgate and Pygmy Wolf Productions with original series and is attached to a third for truTV.
