Dylan Rhymer began performing comedy in clubs while still in high school. Since then he’s come a long way including his own one-hour comedy special on CTV/Comedy Network and Dylan Rhymer: Deliverance for Global TV. He has appeared on CBC’s The Debaters, Just For Laughs, Bumbershoot Arts Festival, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Chicago Sketchfest, The Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Newfoundland Screech Comedy Fest and winning first place in The People’s Champ of Comedy, Western Canada’s largest comedy competition. As an actor he has appeared on Psych. (USA Network), Once Upon A Time (ABC), and The Dead Zone (Space) and has sold his soul in many commercials. He wrote and performed the character Dick Hackney, obnoxious 80’s stand-up comic, in the incredibly popular video game Scarface: The World Is Yours. Players blow his head off with large guns on a daily basis. He has extensively toured his home country of Canada as well as headlining shows in England, Scotland, Croatia, Belgium, France, Romania, The Netherlands and The United States. He has played theatres, clubs, redneck bars, burlesque clubs, art galleries, coffee shops, bookstores, house parties and even the odd barn. He has a sharp and imaginative style that thrills audiences while encouraging them to think. Edgy, charming and hilarious, Dylan Rhymer is truly in a class of his own.
“A real heavy-hitter. Rhymer is a specialist in the satirical and hypocrisy-slapping comedy.”-Prince George Citizen
“A very entertaining comic with more to say than most. Rhymer has the ability to take a controversial topic, like abortion, make it funny, even silly at times and say something relevant. Unlike many Canadian comics his take on Canada vs America is not the usual pandering stuff and in fact quite critical of Canada.”-The Serious Comedy Site (Canada)
