Walter Lyng

Walter Lyng has been a fixture of the Montreal comedy scene for over a decade. Known for his deadpan absurdism and penchant for weirdness, the comedian/actor/writer/producer has established a unique voice and stage presence over the years that's all his own. Last year, he won a lifetime achievement award at the Fringe Festival where he presented the 10th anniversary of his solo show KNIFE FIGHT, and he was also featured in the inaugural Just For Laughs Discovery Series. This year, in addition to appearing on the Just For Laughs Originals show, Walter will return to Zoofest/OFFJFL with the third festival edition of RAD DADS, which presents a showcase of mostly degenerate comedians who have been blessed with the miracle of paternity. Also known for his event producing, Walter is the co-founder of Perfect Bite Productions as well as The World's Smallest Comedy Night at Hurley's Irish Pub. Look out for Walter in the much-anticipated forthcoming Ari Aster feature "Disappointment Boulevard," starring Joaquin Phoenix.
