One of the most prolific and cheerfully twisted voices in the Winnipeg comedy scene, J.D. Renaud was voted Winnipeg’s Favorite Comedian for 2013 by the readers of the Uniter, and is a regular contributor to CBC Radio’s DNTO and The Confessional. He’s performed multiple times in the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and across the country in some of our nation’s finest comedy clubs and dive bars.
A veteran of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, his first one person show, 2013’s Self-Destructivism, earned rave reviews from the Winnipeg Free Press, CBC, and UMFM, and was nominated for the Harry S Rintoul Play writing award. His latest show, 2014’s Damn Your Eyes, earned five stars from the CBC, played to sold out shows through its run, and was named Favorite Theatrical Production of 2014 by The Uniter.
In 2014, he was selected as one of the 100 Most Fascinating People in Manitoba by Virgin Radio, which is simultaneously an honor and hilariously wrong.
