Bio

Who i am ?

Irwin Barker is one of Canada’s top stand-up comedians and comedy writers with a clean and clever comedy style crafted from years of experience in festivals, theatre performances and corporate speaking engagements.

Irwin holds a Master’s Degree in Sociology, has taught at the University of Alberta and University of Manitoba. His comedic approach reflects his unique understanding of Canadian culture and politics.

 

Where i’m From ?

Irwin began his comedy career in Winnipeg in 1988. At the time, he was already successfully employed as a senior public policy researcher with the Angus Reid consulting firm, as well as working as a part-time lecturer in Sociology at the University of Manitoba and simply viewed comedy as a creative outlet.

Irwin’s refreshing and analytical approach to life was evident in his comedy since the very beginning and quickly placed him in high demand, taking on an unexpected life of its own. By 1992, Irwin left consulting and teaching to pursue a very successful second career.

Irwin has extensive experience in specialized comedy performing and writing for corporate functions, conferences, fundraising events and related after-dinner engagements. As a keynote speaker and entertainer, his client list is an impressive array of major corporations, financial groups, government departments, and national associations, demonstrating a remarkable talent for relating to corporate audiences.

 

What i do ?

Irwin has an impressive resume of comedy performing including the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal as well as several appearances at every Canadian comedy festival.

Irwin has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBC’s The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos. He has toured with Brent Butt and has opened for Craig Ferguson and John Pinette. Irwin also recently starred in the comedy special, “Can’t Stop Laughing” on the Comedy Network.

Irwin was part of a comedy team which traveled to Afghanistan to entertain the Canadian troops in 2007. The special, Stand-up in Kandahar was aired on CBC television.

He was a regular performer on CBC Radio’s hit series The Debaters and was also a staff writer for This Hour Has 22 Minutes from 2002 to 2007. Irwin’s most recent writing was for The Rick Mercer Report.

In June of 2007, Irwin was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, a rare type of terminal cancer. Since then, he has been actively involved as an inspirational speaker on how he has used humour as a vital coping mechanism in his personal fight against cancer.

Irwin’s first year of cancer treatment was the subject of a CTV documentary entitled “That’s My Time.”

Sadly Irwin passed away June 21, 2010 at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto Ontario. He was a comedic legend, universally respected by his peers and his strength and courage during his fight against cancer were truly inspirational to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed and forever loved.

Synopsis

Irwin Barker is one of Canada’s best-loved comedy writers and stand up comedians. Most Canadians wouldn’t recognize him in the supermarket aisle. But within the comedy business, at the comedy clubs and in the writing rooms of television shows, and in the green rooms of Canada’s comedy festivals, Irwin is a living legend. He’s the stand-ups’ stand-up; a master at his craft, who sets the standard that younger comedy writers (the smart ones at least) aspire to. These days, living in Toronto, Irwin is working up new material. It may be the most hilarious and fulfilling writing of his life. And it may also be his last. Irwin Barker is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

“That’s My Time” is a one hour documentary that chronicles Irwin’s journey with cancer, and his determination that he will “find the funny” in what is for most of us the least funny predicament imaginable. “Just as there was real value to bringing humour to a war-zone,” Irwin said after a recent trip to Kandahar to entertain Canadian troops, “Similarly, there is a purpose and a value to finding the humour in cancer. I’m sure of it. So that’s it. I’m doing it.”

Through candid interviews, the viewer will come to know Irwin as he mines this unlikely terrain for laughter and comedic insights. We’ll witness the writing process, and the on-stage performance of brand-new material. Some might find the subject difficult. For certain, once word spreads of Irwin’s new set, comedy fans – and his peers – will pack the clubs to listen. Interspersed with the new material is biographical information, and clips from previous work (the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The Vancouver Comedy Festival. This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The CBC TV Pilot “The Truth About …”, the Ha!ifax Comedy Fest). And the viewer will learn about the hard reality of living with cancer and the treatments required, through the prism of one of Canada’s most gifted comedy writers.

“Guilt, anger, resentment … I realize I have no time or energy for those things.” says Irwin. “I call it “travelling light” and that also has a nice double entendre ring to it as a theme: travelling light, a comedian’s journey with cancer.”

Irwin Barker – That’s My Time

That’s My Time

In June of 2007, Irwin was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, a rare type of terminal cancer. Since then, he has been actively involved as an inspirational speaker on how he has used humour as a vital coping mechanism in his personal fight against cancer. He has been a headline performer at numerous cancer fundraisers, as well as a keynote speaker for conferences dealing with cancer and palliative care.

Irwin’s first year of cancer treatment was the subject of a CTV documentary entitled “That’s My Time.” The documentary won for Best Canadian Documentary at the 2008 Atlantic Film Festival and was nationally televised in September, 2008.

Reactions to Irwin’s presentations on Comedy and Cancer have been overwhelmingly positive, seeing it as “a perfect combination of humour and reflection.” In Irwin’s own words: “Cancer has my body but not my spirit, and I’ll continue to make jokes, not so much about cancer, but in spite of it.”

Sadly Irwin passed away June 21, 2010 at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto Ontario. He was a comedic legend, universally respected by his peers and his strength and courage during his fight against cancer were truly inspirational to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed and forever loved.
