Ted Morris is equal parts boy-next-door and boy-your-mother-warned-you-about with just enough boy-you-want-to-hang-out-with-at-the-party-to-laugh-at-everyone-else-with (and know you’re safe!) to keep things interesting. Born in Ottawa and now making his home in Toronto, Ted discovered his love of stand-up while getting his degree in veterinary medicine. While he still spends some time working as a small animal vet, his comedy career is taking off and he has found that it’s much more gratifying to “kill” on stage.
Cedric Newman was born in Jamaica, raised in Montreal, and now calls Toronto home. A long-serving professional who’s graced stages across Canada and throughout Europe. He doesn’t stop there…he’s participated in radio shows, festivals, fundraisers, and corporate events to name a few. He’s had the pleasure of working with some of the industry’s big names such as Russel Peters, Shaun Majunder, and Gerry Dee. Watch for him in the Halifax Comedy Festival airing on CBC Television and on The Amazing Race Canada season 8.
Yuk Yuk’s is the #1 comedy agency in the country and going strong, keeping Canadian Comics working from coast to coast.
Ted Morris has been called “fresh faced and hilarious” and “a real gem” by Now Magazine, and slightly ruder things by strangers in the street.
“Cedric Newman was excellent, he had a little bit of a rowdy crowd of construction workers. He knew how to handle them perfectly. The crowd was laughing the whole time. We would highly recommend him.”
