Brent Butt is a Canadian actor, comedian, and writer. He is best known for his role as Brent Leroy on the CTV sitcom Corner Gas, which he also created. The series was an instant hit when it made its debut in 2004. He also created the hit TV show Hiccups and the 2013 film No Clue. Butt has done several stand-up performances for CTV, CBC, CBC radio’s Definitely Not the Opera and The Comedy Network in Canada (which airs reruns of Corner Gas), as well as A&E in the United States and SBS in Australia. His prairie-oriented comedy and occasional “folksy” song compositions (such as “Nothing Rhymes with Saskatchewan” and “Hairy Legs”) have entertained audiences across Canada. Butt started out his career in the Yuk Yuk’s chain in Western Canada, before moving to Toronto in 1989, where he set up shop in a Cabbagetown apartment with two other comedians. In Toronto, Butt performed in the Yuk Yuk’s chain before leaving and becoming one of the most successful comedians in Canada.
