Now Where Was I?

Briane Nasimok

Canadian Comedy Award recipient and Gemini award nominated writer, storyteller Briane Nasimok, shares a number of his favourite tales of life, love and male beauty pageants.

He mixes videos of past shows, recorded pre-Covid in front of somewhat live audiences, blended with stories that he has shot, especially for this occasion.

One of the original performers at Yuk Yuks Comedy Cabaret, Briane then had various careers as a minor Canadian Film Star, stage performer, Television writer and producer – as his family decribes it – “he can’t keep a job”

Since Covid, Briane now excels at washing floors and making chicken soup.

“He’s a charming man with charming stories and listening to Nasimok is a delightful way to spend an evening”.
Rose Fernandez, CBC Manitoba

“Nasimok’s deadpan delivery only makes his surprising anecdotes of behind-the-scenes goings-on even funnier.” Christopher Hoile – Now Magazine NNNN

“Nasimok has genuinely captivating stories, a sweetly charming personality and a gentle comedic rapport with the audience” Amanda Campbell, Halifax Weekly
