Sean mastered his unique storytelling style over the course of 20 years. In 2000, his stand-out performances led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for 'Best Male Stand Up' & for his half hour 'Comic's Comedy Special' on CBC. In 2002, CTV gave Sean his first hour long television special as part of their 'Comedy Now' series and, building on this momentum, he performed at the Just For Laughs Festival, Montreal in 2003.

Roman Danylo is a hilarious stand-up comic and improvisor from Western Canada. His unique corporate show combines comedy, improv and audience interaction to create an extremely entertaining event. Prior to each event, Roman gathers information from the organizers, and creatively customizes the show to include specific and relevant material. The show is highly interactive and often incorporates into the performance, previously nominated (or random) individuals from the audience, with hilarious results.
Roman has entertained for many high profile companies, including Glaxo Smith Kline, Hewlett Packard, BMO, Manulife Financial and many more. Team building and "thinking outside the box" are high on the agenda, and the result is ALWAYS loads of fun!
Roman has appeared in several Canadian TV Series including CBC’s The Debators, CTV’s Corner Gas, CBC’s Just For Laughs, CBC’s Made in Canada, and has taped two stand-up specials for CTV’s Comedy Now. For five seasons Roman starred in a sketch comedy series on CTV and Spike TV called Comedy Inc. In 2004 Roman won a Leo Awards for his performance in CBC’s Western Alienation Comedy Hour and has been nominated twice for a Gemini for performance in Comedy Inc. Roman enjoys, water sports, raisins and some humans.
Stand up comedian Derek Edwards' award winning humor has made him one of the hottest properties in Canada. A regular at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was recently hailed as a "virtuoso at the peak of performance". Derek’s comedic gift is in making the ordinary extraordinary.
Derek is the only winner of the prestigious Vail, Colarado Invitational Comedy Competition, also a two time Gemini nominee and has been nominated five times as best standup comic at the Canadian Comedy Awards.
Every comic in Canada believes they are the best comic in the land. However, if you ask them all who is second best, they will all tell you "Derek Edwards".
Sean Lecomber was the winner of the 2007 Just for Laughs homegrown competition awarded each year to Canada's best new comic. He recently filmed his own one hour special on the comedy network. A two time Canadian comedy award nominee Sean's comedy has been featured on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sean was a featured performer on the 'alternative' and 'talk of the fest' shows at Just for Laughs and is looking forward to his first appearance at the Halifax comedy festival this summer. You can also listen for his work on XM Radio and CBC's acclaimed radio show 'The Debaters'.
We at V.E.E believe that Sean is undoubtedly one of the best up-and-coming comics in Canada and is headed for stardom! His comedy is centered around ingenious and creative use of words and unique storylines. His “deadpan” delivery cleverly undermines the brilliance of his innovative material – with hilarious results.
Sean is the perfect choice for your event.

We at Vantastic Event Entertainment LOVE Peter Kelamis!
These are our words and not his!! We have booked Peter numerous times and EVERY single time he has the place in an uproar!! The guys are holding their sides and the girls are mopping mascara from their drenched faces throughout his performance. Frankly, none of his material flalls short of the mark! Every minute he's on stage he's a joy to behold!
Peter's delivery and timing are impeccable. His stories are compelling and hilarious. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your tastes, you will be hopelessly drawn to his natural wit and charm.
We once asked him to prepare some new material for a repeat client (for obvious reasons!) Just before he was due to go on stage, he "collared" us, led us backstage and asked if we would mind if he tried out his new material on us. We thought it would be a little awkward, because when you feel pressure to laugh it feels fake and you can't be genuine - right! Not the case!! That's the closest we've come to having an accident in our trousers! He's funny, he's great and he's a born-to-be comedian.
Peter has rubbed shoulders with some very big names! He opened for such comics as Howie Mandel and Dennis Miller. The highlight of his career to-date: Improvising on stage one-on-one with Robin Williams. Peter says," Robin came up to me after the show and said, 'You're really, really funny.' I mean, I didn't go to him, he came to me!"
"A lot of comics are doing straight roles these days," he observes. "And I think it's because we know so much about timing, about reading an audience. There is no mercy in comedy: I mean, when you're a performer, silence is the loudest sound you could possibly hear." For Peter Kelamis, life just keeps getting noisier.
Versatile comedian, actor and writer Pete Zedlacher is a 17-year veteran of the comedy scene and one of the premiere headliners in the country.

This past summer, Zedlacher made his seventh appearance at Just for Laughs in Montreal and taped his third televised gala at the festival. He's also toured with The Capital One Just For Laughs Comedy Tour and hosted two tours with the Just For Laughs Road Show.
A fan favourite within both the alternative and mainstream comedy club scene, Zedlacher has crossed the country from coast to coast (including Nunavut) and toured the world, performing in the United States, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

Vitaly Beckman is an astounding, extraordinary performer of magic and illusion.
Aside from writing and performing all original material, he has the distinction of having invented and designed and created all of his illusions.
His show, Sensation of Magic, includes “Super Vision,” where Beckman demonstrates his ability to read books and newspapers, from a 50-feet distance. Beckman can make people disappear from ordinary photographs and appear on another. He also demonstrates object levitation, a paintbrush that paints by itself, escapes from chains using only mind power, and makes drawings of objects turn into the real thing: a concrete example of his belief that dreams can become reality.
“The show is not just magic,” says Beckman, “It’s about the realization of our dreams and the celebration of the human spirit. With the belief that we are only limited by our own imagination, the audience gets to experience the sensation that nothing is impossible, and that they can realize their dreams, or experience the sensation of how life would be, if there were no limitations.”
If you are looking for an illusionist that will leave your guests awe inspired and open-mouthed, trying to figure out how on earth something so complex can be achieved, Vitaly is your man. An outrageously clever performer.
